CFP: [Transatlantic] Atlantikos (5/1/09; journal issue)
Atlantikos: A Journal of Transatlantic Scholarship
Atlantikos seeks articles, position pieces, and book reviews for its Spring 2009 and Fall 2009 issues.
As a resource for young scholars new to the field of transatlantic studies, Atlantikos is particularly interested in publishing the work of advanced graduate students and new professors. We encourage submissions that join an ongoing conversation about the current status and evolution of transatlantic scholarship, both generally and in relation to specific texts, figures, and concepts.
Articles should be 12-24 pages in length and must be in MLA style. Further submission guidelines are available on our website: http://www.msu.edu/~atlantik.
We also encourage shorter position pieces, 8-12 pages in length, that reflect on the current status and evolution of transatlantic scholarship. To what extent is transatlantic scholarship a methodology in its own right, and to what extent is it a mode of analysis that allows scholars to integrate creatively the analytical approaches of other methodologies such as narrative theory, gender/queer studies, postcolonial studies, race studies, performance/drama studies, and linguistic studies?
See our separate posting for books available for review.
Atlantikos is an online journal that accepts essays in the field of Transatlantic Studies, broadly defined as the study of textual productions dating from the age of exploration to the present that originate in Europe, Africa, and the Americas. The journal emphasizes the creative side of critical analysis, specifically inviting the exploration and intersection of texts and concepts that have historically been separated by disciplinary or theoretical borders. This peer-reviewed journal, headed by an editorial board of graduate students with a wide range of specialties, features the work of scholars currently engaged in the process of reflecting and re-evaluating the field.
Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis, but preference will be given to essays submitted by May 1 and October 15.
