From the beginning, individuals such as W. E. B. Du Bois and Alain Locke attempted to mold and guide Harlem Renaissance authors, as well as control critical reception. Their roles as editors proved influential in the careers of many writers and in the movement itself. While the popular period has received much scholarly attention, the significance of editors and editing in the Harlem Renaissance remains woefully understudied. As a remedy, Editing the Harlem Renaissance will foreground an in-depth, exhaustive approach to relevant editing and editorial issues, offering a variety of voices and becoming a centralized authority on the subject.

The second volume of Turkish-German Studies Yearbook in 2011 was devoted to the 50thanniversary of the migration of Turkish guest workers to Germany.

Discussions on Leitkultur, the supposed phenomenon of speaking two languages halfway, and integration faded into the background, while mutual acceptance seemed within reach.

At the turn of the twentieth century, modernity positioned itself as an unsettling force that changed traditional modes of communication, facilitated new forms of transportation, and transformed social experiences.  Modernity also prompted technological advances that disrupted political/cultural boundaries through war, empire expansion, economic migration, and the like.  Within her Empire, England's colonies felt the longing of emancipation through the rise of nationalist movements in Ireland and India.  Eventually, these movements spread across Britain's African and Caribbean holdings, as well.  The RMMLA English Literature since 1900 panel welcomes presentation proposals of no more than 250 words that explore any aspect of influence that decolonization

Academic Freedom and Academic Lives

 

The concept of “academic freedom”—always contested—has been muddied, polarized, and done violence to in recent years. This special cluster of Biography: An Interdisciplinary Quarterly invites contributions from a variety of perspectives that seek to illuminate the politics of academic freedom and censorship in the face of rapidly escalating racist, xenophobic, anti-semitic, Islamophobic, sexist, misogynist political currents. Essays connected to personal experience, or that situate questions of academic freedom within the problem of experience as a category of scholarship and public knowledge, are particularly welcome and encouraged.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS

 

Is progress always … progressive? Or can progression and regression occupy the same space? According to anthropologist Brian Larkin (2008), “progress can thus be seen as a mode of social ordering, of governmentality in Foucault’s sense that power works not by repression but by incorporation and internalizing modes of rule.” In other words, the tools of innovation often reimagine dominant ideologies with both positive and negative effects.
