Journal of Studies in History & Culture

In our upcoming issue we would take into consideration the disparate and contradictory interpretations of secularism the world over. The structures of secularism and their outreach would be central to the methodology. While research within the broader framework of intellectual history is welcome, we would also like to include papers tracing the morphology of the concept, its reception and practice both on the level of individuals as well as part of state policy.

[UPDATE] Transnational Narratives of Performed Exile and Englishness

updated: 
Sunday, September 27, 2015 - 9:55pm
Catalina Florina Florescu, Pace University

The ongoing events in Europe concerning the "migrant crisis" have made me rethink of the scope of my collection, "Transnational Narratives of Performed Exile and Englishness." The edited volume already has a solid number of contributors, but given the very urgent nature of millions of refugees who seek hope and a new life in Europe, as an editor and a scholar I would be remiss if this volume did not invite scholars to reflect on the current situation in Europe. I seek 3 chapters that address this issue. The approach could be from a journalistic point of view and/or a personal, reflective essay. Please contact me at fflorescu@pace.edu or ravaseala@gmail.com
