African American Review is soliciting essays for a special
issue on the Post-Soul aesthetic to be published in 2007.
Greg Tate calls the Post-Soul "the African American
equivalent of postmodernism," and a working definition of
the Post-Soul aesthetic could include, but not be limited
to, this quotation from Thelma Golden, curator of the Studio
Museum in Harlem (who prefers the term "post-black"):
"For me, to approach a conversation about 'black art'
ultimately meant embracing and rejecting the notion of such
a thing at the very same time. . . . [The Post-Soul] was
characterized by artists who were adamant about not being
labeled as 'black' artists, though their work was

Call for Papers: 'Reconstructing Hybridity'; An Anthology of Critical Essays

We will greatly welcome your original high-quality contribution to the
volume Reconstructing Hybridity which will provide an interesting
international forum for the discussion of hybridity. In recent years,
hybridity has become one of the most important and influential as well as
contested concepts in post-colonial theory. While theorists like Homi
Bhabha have used it to describe the effective and productive conditions of
culture, others like Aijaz Ahmad criticize the application of the term as a
form of postmodern alienation, devoid of historical particularity.
