PUBLICATION SERIES: The Black Atlantic Cultural Series: Revisioning the Literary, Visual, and Performing Arts

This series will embrace exploratory discussions that emanate from the latest Africana ideas from the Caribbean, Black Atlantic, and Southern United States. The series aims to examine ideologies, theories, aesthetics, and their cultural and global manifestations. From the music, dance, literature, fashion, linguistic nuances, and beyond, Africana culture is vibrantly original and requires significant documentation to avoid its loss in the vast imitation that abounds nationally and internationally. 

Contact the editor for full proposal guidelines.

Call for issues: "Interférences littéraires"/Literaire interferenties

updated: 
Tuesday, January 2, 2018 - 1:08pm
Interférences Littéraires
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 28, 2018

Interférences littéraires/Literaire interferenties is a peer-reviewed, international and multilingual open-access journal devoted to the interaction between literature and cultural and societal practices. The word “interference” denotes a situation of unsolicited or even unnecessary intervention, the conjunction of clearly distinct phenomena. If literature, and in particular the reservoir of texts commonly categorized as ‘modern’, has delineated itself and has been projected with a strong sense of autonomy vis-à-vis social, cultural, ideological or scientific discourses and material conditions, neither its production nor its reception ever happens in a vacuum.
