Launched on 15 November 2011, the Social Epistemology Review and Reply Collective (ISSN 2471-9560) offers a forum for intellectual inquiry and dialogue concerning issues of knowledge, society, science, technology, politics, economics, and ecology. As an open-access platform, the SERRC allows for thoughtful and timely responses to issues occupying both the academic arena and the wider public square. We speak to international and global concerns. The SERRC contributes to a unique, dynamic, and interdependent publishing assemblage with the journal Social Epistemology (Routledge) and with the book series “Collective Studies in Knowledge and Society” (Rowman & Littlefield). Through these interactive outlets, we endeavor to grow and reimagine scholarly work in uncommon, productive, and powerful ways. The contemporary pursuit of knowledge requires a critically refined perspective and reflexive care regarding the practices of writing and publishing.

The SERRC encourages novel and advanced forms of intellectual expression and scholarly publication that remix and revitalize the public value, reception, and purpose of academic research. We support collaborative dialogues on published articles. We review, and conduct roundtables on, books that address the social and political dimensions of knowledge from various disciplines and schools of thought. We provide a nimble independent platform for original research, scholarship, commentary, and judgment on cultural and policy-related issues. We venture well beyond the disciplinary boundaries of social epistemology to consider new research and concepts. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, we want to nourish, network, and amplify the work of early-career scholars who might find the traditional academic terrain somewhat … unyielding.

All of our different long-running and one-off projects can be found through the options on the Main Menu above and on the Pages Menu on the right-hand side. You can also find reference information for everything published on the SERRC on our Site Bibliography.
