Leadership and the Humanities
A new journal published by Edward Elgar in association with the ILA

Expanding Interdisciplinary Discourse

Editor in Chief and co-editors: Antonio Marturano, Michael Harvey, and Terry Price.

A new journal launched in September 2013. The journal will be published in association with the International Leadership Association. Leadership and the Humanities is a peer-reviewed international journal dedicated to advancing understanding of, research on, and applications concerning leadership. The journal offers rigorous but readable scholarship on leadership from the broad field of the humanities, an increasingly popular locus for leadership studies. As a benefit of ILA membership, all ILA members will receive free online access to the journal.

The journal publishes explorations of leadership from many disciplinary perspectives, including philosophy, ethics, religion, history, psychology, arts, literature, drama, film, ancient and modern languages, classics, communication and media studies, anthropology, political science, and sociology. Interdisciplinary approaches are encouraged. The journal welcomes studies of leaders and leadership in many different settings, in fiction and art, and across different times, places, and cultures. This may include studies of formal as well as informal leaders, and it may focus on followers, organizations, and the context of leadership, or on symbolic representations and depictions of leadership. Research that stresses the diversity of leadership across gender, race, class, religion, and age are encouraged.
