DEADLINE: February 16, 2004

In celebration of the ten-year anniversary of South Africa's first
democratic elections in April 1994, Safundi is publishing a double-issue of
its journal.

We encourage any scholar or professional to submit a paper for publication.
Papers are being collected for publication in Issue 13/14, April 2004.

SUGGESTED TOPICS: For this special issue, Safundi is particularly interested
in essays and scholarly articles that address the ten-year anniversary, what
'progress' has been made in South Africa, what pitfalls lie ahead, and how
this relates to the United States in any academic discipline. We publish
papers on all topics: politics, sociology, law, economics, art, music,
literature, history, etc.

PUBLICATION INFO: : Safundi is a peer-reviewed,
quarterly, academic journal devoted to the comparative study of South Africa
and the United States. We believe that analyzing the two countries in a
comparative context enhances our perspective on each, individually. While
new comparative research is the focus of the journal, we also publish
articles specifically addressing one country, provided the articles are of
interest to the comparative scholar. George Fredrickson of Stanford
University serves as Patron of the Board. Christopher Saunders of the
University of Cape Town and Scott Rosenberg of Wittenberg University are the
journal's Editors-in-Chief. Safundi has an editorial board of more than 30
scholars and a membership of more than 1900 individuals worldwide.

SUBMISSION INFO: Review the writer's guidelines at and then submit your paper in
either RTF or Microsoft Word DOC format to the Founding Editor and
Publisher, Andrew Offenburger, at Safundi evaluates
papers using a blind submission process. Papers of a comparative nature
receive priority.

Please circulate this call for papers widely. Thank you.
