ion, or not”? Yet since only a handful of firms and industrial sectors are run following so-called “holacratic” (i.e., communal or participatory) principles, degrowth must – in a first stage at least – be deployed in a piecemeal, hybrid manner.
In the context of discussing the cooperative sector, Gibson-Graham (2003) suggest that if we perceive economic relations as already plural, then the revolutionary “project of replacement” can be modified into one of “strengthening already existing non-capitalist economic processes and building new non-capitalist enterprises,” of establishing “communal subjects” (p. 157). Several chapters in the Handbook of Peer Production [...] have discussed ways in which this “strengthening” has begun to occur at the municipal level. However, as noted by Adrian Smith (2014) in his account of London’s early-1980s Technology Networks (community-based workshops which provided open access to shared machine tools, technical advice, and prototyping services), a “key lesson from this history is that “radical aspirations invested in workshops, such as democratizing technology, will need to connect to wider social mobilizations capable of bringing about reinforcing political, economic and institutional change” (Smith, 2014, online). In other words, the ecology around peer production must be nurtured. Further, adopting strictly local settings leaves the public policy terrain open to neoliberal and/or reactionary perspectives.

ntents of the academic paper are transformed into a different format. The nature of this transformation is up to the authors.
We can suggest the following: policy guidelines; practical toolkits; comic-books; etc. Other authors may be enlisted to assist in the article's transition. Editorial guidelines for complementary pieces: max 2000 words; reviewed by the editors. JOPP #15 TRANSITION - Non peer-reviewed articlesWe also invite submissions of non-peer reviewed academic papers dealing with transition. These will be reviewed by the editors.
A-Follow-up papers

Papers "following-up" on previous issues of JOPP, or on specific articles by the authors or others. What has changed since this article was published?
B-Policy and strategic papers

Papers bringing together academics and policy makers. Strategies for connecting to actors in government and/or civil society.
C-Meta papers

Papers on the question of impactful academic publishing: how can academics pursue a career and have social impact at the same time? Papers on the transition of research fields: how do research fields evolve to better meet their aims? Rewriting influential papers, or a chapter of a classic book, or revisiting one's own past paper: what has changed?
Editorial guidelines for A, B, and C: max 4000 words. TRANSITION: TIMELINE* CFP released 30 June 2020
* EOI peer-reviewed articles deadline (500-words max. extended abstract + 100-words max. complementary paper abstract) 30 July 2020
* EOI non peer-reviewed articles deadline (250-words max. abstract) 30 July 2020
* Authors advised 30 August 2020
* First submission sent out for review 30 November 2020
* Reviews due 30 January 2021
* Revised submissions due 30 March 2021
* Signals due 30 May 2021
* JOPP # 15 released 30 June 2021
*The following is an excerpt from the final chapter of the forthcoming Handbook of Peer Production (Wiley, 2021), “Be Your Own Peer! Principles and Policies for the Commons” (O’Neil, Toupin, Pentzold):
The governance of peer produced projects, one of the central aspects of the studies of peer production, aspires to the self-regulation of participants in autonomous collectives. This governance raises the broader issue of political sovereignty. The appeal of self-governance for peer production participants can perhaps be explained by the amount of strategic control most citizens in liberal democracies have over their lives and environment. This control has been drastically reduced by unaccountable global actors – e.g. financial markets, extractive industrial interests, supranational trade agreements, and the list goes on – who influence and constrain the policy options of notionally democratic nation-states. In the early 2020s, racist nativism and authoritarianism are being embraced by some people in reaction to the failures of export-oriented, deregulated, and globalized neoliberalism. A way out of this political crisis is linked to a solution to the environmental crisis: we must head toward more democracy by relocalizing or deglobalizing, and towards more sustainability by degrowing, our economies.
As engaged researchers, we believe the Handbook of Peer Production needs to offer a response, however modest, to these political and ecological challenges. Addressing the macro-economic aspects of “deglobalization” would lead us far away from peer production, towards issues which would probably require a Handbook of their own.  Accordingly, we focus here on relocalization as it relates to degrowth (décroissance), the downscaling of over-production and over-consumption (Kallis, 2019; Latouche, 2006). In a nutshell: unlimited growth and consumption are not sustainable, so we need more access to free public services, a shorter work week, and a turn towards climate-friendly industries. In this context, Stefania Barca (2019) suggests that the one question that matters is that posed by self-governing workers: “should surplus value be reinvested in product[...]

The Trouble with Normal...
Journal of Peer Production #15 TRANSITION (Jul 2020)

Website:

Deadline for submission of abstracts: 30 Jul 2020 https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-rdFzMpVZ5Ys/Xv97Ne77ggI/AAAAAAAAzQQ/1MjgrXzkO_U__m3VAHY-GMrUMAskyCsrwCLcBGAsYHQ/s320/pr.png Peer production and our crisesPeer producers are people who create and manage common-pool resources together. It sometimes seems as if “peer production” and “digital commons” can be used interchangeably. Digital commons such as free and open source software and Wikipedia are non-rivalrous (they can be reproduced at little or no cost) and non-excludable (no-one can prevent others from using them, through property rights for example). So, practically speaking, proprietary objects could be produced by equal “peers”. We argue that peer production has a normative dimension so that what chiefly characterizes this mode of production is  that “the  output is orientated towards the further expansion of the commons; while the commons, recursively, is the chief resource in this mode of production” (Söderberg & O'Neil, 2014, p. 2). The Journal of Peer Production has tracked the evolution of peer production from open knowledge to open design and manufacturing. It approaches its ten-year anniversary in the time of the global pandemic, and of the continuing environmental crisis. The impacts of Covid-19 are profound, but will not last forever, though local infection pools may subsist in poorer countries for much longer than in the Global North. In contrast, the environmental crisis is here to stay. The role of the Journal of Peer ProductionSignificant social change is required to stave off climate destruction, and principles such as cooperation and trust, transparency in production, collective democratic decision-making, etc., can usefully contribute to necessary processes of “relocalization” and “degrowth”.* What should be done to develop the digital and physical commons? What role should the Journal of Peer Production play in this development? And what shape should it take? It is clear that in addition to maintaining its uniquely transparent curation and dissemination of academic research, the Journal of Peer Production needs to expand its work in several ways:
* Should it feature more practical advice to develop commons, such as toolkits and how-to guides?
* Should it comprise policy proposals to help grow the infrastructure which supports the commons?
* In other words, should it combine research and action?
The answer is 'yes' in all three cases. To this end we seek creative, practical and policy-oriented ideas to help invent a new type of scientific journal that both fulfills strict academic criteria, and brings research work closer to practice. Our next issue, JOPP #15 will thus be a "TRANSITION" issue featuring, in addition to peer-reviewed research, experimental formats and "meta" articles. JOPP #15 TRANSITION - Call for PapersWe seek investigations into societal transition (how can we move towards a society where contributions to the commons are valued and recognised?), into the journal's editorial transition (how should the Journal of Peer Production change to assist this societal transition), as well as idiosyncratic understandings of scientific and political transitions. JOPP #15 TRANSITION - Peer-reviewed articles + ComplementWe invite submissions of peer-reviewed academic papers from multiple fields on how "things can change". What are the sociological and historical conditions for transition to occur? For example: what is the impact of manifestos? When is innovation socialised? How can allies be enrolled? etc. Editorial guidelines for peer-reviewed articles: max 8000 words; peer-reviewed in accordance with the JOPP peer review process. For this TRANSITION issue, academic papers must be complemented by a shorter piece in which the co[...]

or the Fashion and Textile sectors is articulated, according to the following categories:
* design theories and practices: new ideas and knowledge are investigated according to a complementary logic in order to present new proposals and visions on society, products and forms of consumption;
* tangible and intangible resources and skills: new productive possibilities and inclusive practices are proposed, where the priority aspects of sustainability give rise to innovative forms of thinking and doing;
* strategies for sustainability and circularity (circular economy): a new value chain materializes, considering the intrinsic values of the fashion and textile product through strategies that support, adapt and reuse.
The topics will be oriented by the following areas formulated according to the proposed ambivalences, not limiting any contributions that reveal further dual pairs:
* market / consumer
* production/manufacturing
* economy/resources
* territories/excellence
* project/company
* concept / reality
* creation / production
* project/sustainability
* processes / reconstruction To participate we ask that you send:* abstract proposals (from 2000 to 3000 characters, spaces included)    beat in English and original languages by September 11 2020.
* full papers, only in English, will be required to be submitted by November 13 2020and then be subjected to double-blind peer review. The length of the contributions 20000/25000 characters (abstract, notes and bibliography excluded).

The Trouble with Normal...
PAD #20: The Fashion and Textile reconstruction - The ambivalence of the Emergency and Sustainability (Sep 2020)

Website: PAD20

Deadline for submission of abstracts: 11 Sep 2020
Guest editors: Maria Antonietta Sbordone and Gianni Montagna
Publishers invite authors to send their contributions focused on Fashion and Textiles to participate to the no. 20 of PAD - Pages on Arts and Design online journal. PremiseThe belated action of the humankind is part of its nowadays’ character, overwhelming the rhythm of the cycles of ecosystems, the effects of which they are propagated by presenting themselves in different forms; among these, the appearance of the emergency phenomenon, as an effect of the absence of sustainable action, exposes the entire society and the biological basis, on which the forms of civilization are perpetuated, to a serious risk.
An absence that confronts us with pressing questions about the real will of human action in terms of forecasting capacity and solution of its impact on the ecosystems. Sustainable action, could foresees the effects, designs the remedies to mitigate the damages, thinks about the safety of the global society as a whole, can allow to find solutions to the occurrence of unexpected and unwanted phenomena.
We look for a comparison and discussion from the absence of sustainable human action which leads us to the hostile form of the occurrence of the emergency phenomenon, facing the absence of technological protection of human values and welfare. The emergency is now to discuss and compare the different disciplinary areas in general, Fashion and Textiles in particular, in order to inspire and promote the turn up of a new dialogue more or less close and coordinated, but effective, in order to reconstruct the links between society and ecosystems. CallThe Call for papers focuses on Fashion and Textiles, as the most polluting sectors and, where the reconstruction of the real value chain is most urgent and in harmony with the needs of consumers and the protection of ecosystems. The reflection will be oriented to the emergency created by the textile/clothing sectors and the urgency of a sustainable and effective response, not only with regard to production processes but mostly as an effect above all the re-adaptation of social and cultural interpretative models. Tools of communication and persuasion par excellence, Fashion and Textiles are called to reinvent themselves in the role of (in)form, (re)innovate, (re)build and conciliate the relationship between human needs and the balance of ecosystems, so as to make coexistence possible.
Humans behave and the effects on the entire ecosystem that surrounds and supports it must be re-discussed, raising questions and proposing measures that minimize the current emergency and prevent future ones.
We hope an open, transparent and productive comparison and confrontation between the knowledge of the various scientific areas for/by the formulation of new theories and practices that allow the establishment of renewed balances, thanks to visions and solutions that implement forms of sustainability, according to the logic of circular economy.
The call, therefore, proposes discussion in the form of a dialectical debate between two or more research areas assuming that different systems, logics, methods, tools could establish and discuss the creation of complex synergies.
The aim is to establish a conscious design action that is able to give strong answers to the issues due to human inconsistencies, in terms of sustainable solutions to the impacts that cause environmental and social emergencies, reconstructing synergies between two specific but complementary sectors.
The social aspects, environmental compatibility, the economic challenge are the main references from which the diachronic and synchronic comparison f[...]
