MLA 2019 Pitch to Page: Teaching the Publication Process

Friday, February 9, 2018 - 11:25am
Claire Sommers, The Graduate Center, CUNY
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 1, 2018

Professors have been advised to “publish or perish” for nearly 100 years. First coined in 1927, this phrase warns professors that in order to maintain their jobs, they must publish their work. Publishing has always been central to academia, as it is the primary vehicle through which scholars share their research with a larger audience. Yet, in recent years, academia has changed so that publishing is not reserved for those who are already professors. Instead, publishing has become a requirement for any one who is applying to become a professor, with PhD students being encouraged to publish their research before they have finished their degrees.

We are currently accepting submissions for next year.

This edited anthology explores the nexus between violence and carcerality within the discursive order of state practices. Scholars within humanities, engaging with critiques of carcerality in relation to state violence from different global contexts are welcome to contribute to this anthology. This volume aims to align with the larger objectives envisioned by activist groups such as M4BL (Movement for Black Lives): building alliances with indigenous people’s struggles, political prisoners’ solidarity work, and activists resisting violence against women and LGBTQIA communities. It explores the potential to forge a global discursive order oriented toward anticolonial liberation struggles.
