Following this year of the Queen’s Jubilee and the London Olympics, we invite reflections on Britain as a postcolonial site.

:: What discourses and practices of nation and nationality are operative in Britain today?
:: Which hidden histories of Britain remain untold, or unheard?
:: How are literary, dramatic, and artistic representations re-shaping the nation?
:: What fruitful directions might future postcolonial studies of Britain take?

We welcome submissions from across the full spectrum of scholarly disciplines, and encourage interdisciplinary research. We also invite reports on relevant conferences or cultural activities, and details of appropriate degree courses, study centres, and recent publications.

To make an enquiry, or to register your intention to submit a feature, please contact the editors Nicola Abram and Lindsey Moore as soon as possible. Final contributions should be between 300-1200 words long, and should be sent as .doc files by the end of February 2013, along with the author’s bio.

[Image Competition]

We particularly welcome submissions of photographs and other artwork that responds to the theme of the forthcoming Special Issue: Other Britains. Submissions deemed suitable may be chosen to feature throughout the Issue. The image deemed by the editors to best capture the theme will be selected for the front page, and the artist invited to submit a blurb and biography. Please send high resolution images via email to the editors, as above.
