Call for Submissions

The Postcolonialist welcomes contributions in fields including but not limited to language and literature, visual and performing arts, film, political science, media, anthropology and sociology.

We accept a broad range of submissions that fall into four categories: Magazine (journalistic and editorial pieces), Academic Dispatches (conference length, peer-reviewed papers), Creative (artwork, poetry, photography, fiction, etc.), and Academic Journal (traditional peer-reviewed articles).

The theme for Winter/Spring 2014 peer reviewed full-length entries is “Sites of Home.” We seek pieces that explore the ways in which physical and imagined spaces of familiarity and belonging (linguistic, physical, artistic, political, and social) are made and unmade in light of globalization, digital technology, and mass migration. We desire innovative work that challenges and redraws the contours of modes of belonging, creating new “zones” of nationhood and citizenship through the lens of (de)colonial geography.

Submissions for all types of articles are accepted on a rolling and ongoing basis; however, the date for peer-reviewed submissions for the Academic Journal to be released in the Spring volume is February 14, 2014.

All articles published in The Postcolonialist are open source and available online. Submissions are welcome in English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese.

For more information, please see: http://www.postcolonialist.com/submissions; or, please send all inquiries and submissions to: editorinchief@postcolonialist.com
