In his seminal work The Souls of Black Folk, W.E.B. Du Bois wrote that the single most pressing issue facing the United States was the color line. More than 100 years later, the issue of race remains a pressing one for the U.S. and research suggests that the racial divide permeates our culture. Furthermore, numerous studies have found that today’s college students are not sufficiently prepared to interact and communicate effectively in a culturally-diverse and globalized workplace and do not possess many of the 21st century competencies necessary for success and engagement in such diverse environments. But in comparison, we wonder how prepared are faculty, administrators, and staff to cultivate a space where these skills can develop?

Perspectives on Music Production: Gender in Music Production
Call for Contributions
Deadline for proposals: 9th April 2018
The music production industry has, for many years, been viewed as male dominated. Despite many examples of diversification and acknowledgement of the issues (such as the Audio Engineering Society’s ‘He For She’ campaign), gender representation within music production is considered limited. The editors welcome abstracts for chapters in a forthcoming Routledge edited volume entitled Gender in Music Production. The scope for contributions are listed below.
In December 2012, a young woman named Jyoti Singh was raped in New Delhi while returning home after watching a film with her friend. The incident quickly became a sensational news story in both national and international media, leading to an unprecedented amount of popular protests in New Delhi and other Indian cities. To be precise, the Jyoti Singh Rape Case proved to be a watershed moment in the history of the contemporary gendered mobilizations in India, which unleashed a series of questions for the Indian women’s movement.

Writing Across the Curriculum
At its most basic, Writing Across the Curriculum is founded on the core belief summarized by Chris Anson in The WAC Casebook that “writing belongs in all courses in every discipline” (ix). While guided by this central value, WAC programs must also be inherently flexible, individually designed to best meet the needs of their specific students, faculty, programs, and institutions. This diversity of possible approaches gives us the opportunity to share ideas, techniques, and experiences to explore the flexibility and adaptability of the larger WAC pedagogy.
The Writing Across the Curriculum section welcomes all submissions. Possible topics include but are not limited to:
Lateral is the peer-reviewed, open access journal of the Cultural Studies Association. Lateral is currently published on a semiannual basis, fall and spring. This journal does not charge any type of article processing charge (APC) or any type of article submission charge.

Call for Essay Proposals on the Writings of Jesmyn Ward
Special Issue of the Xavier Revew
In August 2017, Ron Charles, editor of Book World wrote in the The Washington Post:
Six years ago, a young, relatively unknown writer from Mississippi published Salvage the Bones. In lush prose that felt determined to sprout off the page, the novel described a poor African American family struck by Hurricane Katrina. From its modest beginnings, Salvage the Bones went on to win the 2011 National Book Award for Fiction and to establish its author, Jesmyn Ward, as one of the most powerfully poetic writers in the country.
