CFP: Postcolonial and the Global: Connections, Conflicts, Complicities (10/5/03 & 12/30/03; collection)

We are seeking three strong essays to round out an edited book
collection as described below. We would need a one-page abstract by
10/5, and full paper by end of December. We are planning an edited
volume of essays exploring the intersection between postcolonial and
globalization studies. We believe that such an exploration is important
to undertake at this time to counter the hegemonizing/homogenizing
tendencies we sense emerging in dominant strands of contemporary
cultural theory. It is unclear whether contemporary globalization theory
has been made possible by the postcolonial challenge to older
Eurocentric forms of globalization premised on the centrality of the

Call for Papers (Edited Collection)

Research and Publication Centre at the National College of Arts, Lahore,

Pakistan, invites research papers for publication in a peer-reviewed
collection. The aim of the book is to examine the relationship between
education and colonialism. Therefore, the papers should examine the
pedagogical practices, institutions and British colonialism in the
subcontinent, especially with reference to contemporary Pakistan. The
editors would eagerly welcome those papers that employ theoretical
innovation with rigorous scholarship in order to analyze the nexus of
education and the legacies of imperialism in South Asia.

Possible areas of investigation can include:

        The editors of a proposed volume of collected essays titled 'The
Cultures of New World Order: Writing, Reading, Theory since 1991'invite
submissions of abstracts for essays between 6-8,000 words. The
abstracts themselves need not be more than 500 words.

have received a fresh boost by events such as Al-Quaida's September 11
attacks on New York, and the subsequent US-led invasions of Afghanistan

Special issue of Current Writing on Paul Gilroy and 'The Black Atlantic:
Modernity and double consciousness'

The publication of Paul Gilroy's 'The Black Atlantic: Modernity and double
consciousness' ten years ago made a major contribution to the reconfiguration
of the study of black literatures and cultures. Since then several scholars
have engaged with the ways in which the Atlantic divides and connects Africa,
Europe, and the Americas; with notions of black modernity; and with the
intricacies of double consciousness.
