updated: 
Sunday, August 28, 2005 - 6:34pm
Kaavonia M Hinton-Johnson

Deadline extended:

We invite submissions for a forthcoming book entitled "Multicultural
Literature and the New Educational Accountability: Challenges and
Opportunities." This book will highlight ways in which classroom teachers
and teacher educators continue to utilize multicultural children's and
young adult literature while addressing local, state and national
standards. Moreover, contributors to the volume will examine how teachers
balance the pressure for accountability (i.e., success on high-stakes
tests) with students' needs for culturally responsive pedagogy.

We are seeking essays for an edited collection on "Asian American
Literature and Postcolonial Theory," which should be both an exploration
and a mapping of the debates around these two terms and their corollaries.
Such corollary debates have erupted over the use of terms such as diaspora,
cultural memory, racial melancholy and trauma, nationalism, ethnicity, and
hybridity in Asian American cultural critique. Essays that consider these
genealogies and/or question the usefulness of theories derived from
colonial and postcolonial discourse are especially welcome. Also of
interest would be specific author, period, regional, national, and textual

The second "Scottish Renaissance" which is often said to have begun with
the publication of Lanark and which reached a high point with the
publication of Trainspotting appears to have reached a new stage
following devolution and the establishment of Scotland's first parliament

situation suggests a number of questions regarding the present and future

of the Scottish fiction writer and the reception of and/or market for
contemporary Scottish fiction? What part, if any, does recent Scottish
fiction play in the forming, or questioning, of a national political
