Margins, Borders and Peripheries in Modern European-Jewish Literature
The Journal of Pan African Studies (www.jpanafrican.com) invites papers for a March 2012 edition on African-centered theory, methodology and pedagogy in Africana Studies. African-centered theorists argue that an African-centered perspective in spoken and written form in the American context emerges during the second-order 19th and 20th century speeches and writings of David Walker, Maria Stewart, Henry Garnet and the like, who were calling for cultural nationalism.
Though Americanist scholarship of the past quarter-century has focused almost exclusively on the political and ideological, questions of culture, identity, and exceptionalism have more often than not supplanted rather than complemented economic analysis. With the advent of the 2008 global financial crisis, however, economic concerns have again risen to the fore.

Dossier for the upcoming issue (no. 10/11) – The Sound of Silence
Organized by – ZlatkaTimenova-Valtcheva
Co-organized by – Luís Cláudio Ribeiro
Western societies, as defined by Greco-Roman philosophy and logocentrism, have traditionally considered fullness and emptiness, absence and presence, sound (in acoustics and verbal expression) and silence as in opposition and therefore mutually exclusive. However, with Judaic-Christian thought emerges the relationship between word and silence through the image of the "Spirit of God", and after St. Augustine,the human/divine language dichotomy.
