Call for Papers: Special Issue, The Comparatist
Topic: Figuring Race
General Editor: Zahi Zalloua (Whitman College)

We welcome contributions that examine the notion of race in comparative studies and literary theory. How do we imagine, represent, and construct race today? What role does race play in the Humanities? How do we talk about race in an ideologically color blind society? How does racial difference relate to other type of differences? Can we foreground race while avoiding both the pitfalls of identity politics and the depoliticization of race by neoliberalism? Topics of interest could include:

Black Lives Matter

Critical Race Theory

Solidarity Movements

Sanglap: Journal of Literary and Cultural Inquiry
deadline for submissions:

The emphasis that this method of reading puts on the cross-cultural travels of a literary text is reinforced by the global technology of social media and web 2.0 which promises instant connectedness and conjures a virtual world which is self-contained, even though it reflects and engages with the actual world of the socio-political, outside itself.

ReFocus: A Series of Film Studies Anthologies: The International Director

In 2015, the University of Edinburgh Press launched a multivolume series of scholarly, refereed anthologies entitled ReFocus: The American Directors Series. Each book focused on a critically overlooked American film director who worked in the studio system, independent cinema, experimental filmmaking, or documentary tradition.


The series editors, Dr. Gary D. Rhodes (Queens University, Belfast) and Dr. Robert Singer (CUNY Graduate Center, Liberal Studies), have already published volumes edited by leading film scholars on Preston Sturges, Delmer Daves, Budd Boetticher, and Amy Heckerling.
