Americans (1985 =96 2005)
IRCALC editors invite papers for the 2006 edition of Africa Literary Journal, ALJ. Tagged 'Re-Imagining African Literature (2), this 2006 edition, which pursues the 2003 theme edited by Charles Smith, is expected to complement the scholarly essays that appeared in that volume.
We are seeking essays for an edited collection on "Asian American
Literature and Postcolonial Theory," which should be both an exploration
and a mapping of the debates around these two terms and their corollaries.
Such corollary debates have erupted over the use of terms such as diaspora,

hybridity in Asian American cultural critique. Essays that consider these
genealogies and/or question the usefulness of theories derived from
colonial and postcolonial discourse are especially welcome. Also of
interest would be specific author, period, regional, national, and textual
