Worldwide Educators of African Descent: Lessons from International Teaching and Tests in the Field

updated: 
Monday, May 1, 2017 - 2:22pm
Black Educators Abroad
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 1, 2017

Part travelogue, part professional reflection, this book will be a peer-reviewed anthology of original composition--narratives, interviews, field observations, formal academic writing--about teaching outside one’s country of origin as a person of African descent. The book seeks to augment the voices--and use print publication to promote the career advancement--of black educators who may otherwise not have access to either. In addition to parity, the publication will celebrate the unique perspectives and creative problem-solving that evolve from Africana or black cultural ways of knowing and teaching in intercultural context. Topical considerations may include a variety of impressions about instruction, pedagogy, and institutional leadership.

MFS Special Issue - Inter-imperiality

updated: 
Thursday, April 20, 2017 - 12:28pm
Modern Fiction Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 1, 2017

The editors of MFS seek essays that engage with the concept of inter-imperiality, as developed in the recent PMLA “Theories and Methodologies” cluster (March 2015) and elsewhere. The global turn in literary and cultural studies, although productive, sometimes elides the post/colonial, economic, and other historical or geopolitical conditions of literary-cultural production. We solicit essays that offset this tendency by reading literary-cultural texts within an inter-imperial framework.

Deadline Extended: CFP for Postcolonial Interventions, Vol.II, Issue 2 (June 2017)

updated: 
Monday, April 3, 2017 - 2:05pm
Postcolonial Interventions: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Postcolonial Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 16, 2017

A.K. Ramanujan in a poem entitled “Small-scale Reflections on a Great House” had mused, “Sometimes I think that nothing/that ever comes into this house/goes out. Things come in every day/to lose themselves among other things/lost long ago among/other things lost long ago”. The description may seem oddly apt for the field of postcolonial studies which continues to search for new shores even as some of the concerns of the past begin to fade with inevitable processes of history. Even as the field remains committed to a quest for emancipation from violence and discrimination and deprivation, caused by the forces of race, class, gender, sexuality and a number of other factors, the modalities continue to change and the boundaries begin to blur.
