MELUS Special Issue - Multi-Ethnic American Graphic Narrative
In his book REINVENTING COMICS, Scott McCloud explores some of the problems
concerning ethnicity and comics. Not only does he argue for an increased
awareness of ethnic and gender representation in contemporary comics, but he
also highlights many of the ethnoracial concerns underlying the history of
comics in the United States. Using McCloud's arguments as a springboard,
MELUS plans on publishing a special issue devoted to multi-ethnic American
twentieth century and beyond

Contributions are sought for a book in English on the theme of Belonging in the Age of (what I call) "Troubled Globalization". The issue of identity can be addressed critically, reflectively, and creatively from interdisciplinary perspectives. Arab creative writers, critics/scholars, artists and journalists are requested to write around 15-20-page narrative/reflective/non-fictional/critical essays (in the I-mode) about how they map their own identities in our ever-changing cultural and political formations. Contributors are requested to reflect in their narratives on how self-expression in the age of "Troubled Globalization" has affected/influenced their modes of artistic expressions.
