This edited collection will contain critical, interdisciplinary essays addressing the complexity of multicultural identity-making, politics and practices in relation to transnational and transracial adoption. Our collection aims to undo the image of a 'monolithic' Western adoption experience by exploring the particularities and commonalities of diverse adoptive countries, cultures, and contexts. We encourage essays that focus on adoption issues in places with highly contested to under-explored approaches to multiculturalism—including Europe, the Americas and the Pacific.

Verge: Studies in Global Asias
contact email: 

Verge: Studies in Global Asias is a new journal that includes scholarship from scholars in both Asian and Asian American Studies. These two fields have traditionally defined themselves in opposition to one another, with the former focused on an area-studies, nationally and politically oriented approach, and the latter emphasizing epistemological categories, including ethnicity and citizenship, that drew mainly on the history of the United States. The past decade however has seen a series of rapprochements in which, for instance, categories "belonging" to Asian American Studies (ethnicity, race, diaspora) have been applied with increasing success to studies of Asia.

Sapientia Hungarian University of Transylvania

Following up on the themes introduced in our previous conferences dedicated to "film in the post-media age", the "cinema of sensations", "rethinking intermediality in the digital age", and "figurations of intermediality in film", we invite you to address one of the most puzzling phenomena of contemporary media and film: the intertwining of the illusion of reality with effects of intermediality, connecting the experience of a palpable, everyday world with artificiality, abstraction and the awareness of multiple mediations.
