A CALLALOO CALL FOR PAPERS

POSTCOLONIALITY AND BLACKNESS

Callaloo seeks creative and multi-disciplinary critical submissions for a
special issue on "postcoloniality and blackness." For this issue, we are
interested in looking comparatively at the uneven postcolonial situation of
black peoples and cultures in the 21st century. We seek to explore the
diverse material and political circumstances of black postcolonials, and the
limitations of current postcolonial theorizing for the black experience.

Creative Submissions
Previously unpublished work in all genres, including interviews.
