eSharp, the University of Glasgow's postgraduate journal, is delighted to
announce it is receiving papers for its 13th issue on 'Atlantic Exchanges'
to be launched in June 2009. This issue emphasises cross-cultural Atlantic
exchanges, noting that the ocean has served not to separate but to connect
the peoples of the Atlantic continents - Africa, South America, the
Caribbean, North America and Europe - from 1492 to the present day.
'Atlantic Exchanges' seeks to encourage inter-cultural perspectives in a
variety of disciplines.

eSharp welcomes submissions from postgraduate students at any stage of
their research and contributors are invited to interpret the theme broadly.

Subjects may include, but are not limited to:

- colonialism and post-colonialism
- migrations and diasporas
- the slave trade
- intellectual exchange
- mobility of political ideologies and structures
- trans-Atlantic movements of prominent individuals
- international exchanges in education
- languages and linguistics
- legal structures and constitutions

Submissions must be between 4000 and 6000 words and be based on original
research. For more information, a full list of guidelines and our style
sheet, please visit

The deadline for submissions is Friday 13th March.
