CFP: African Literature (5/1/05; journal issue)
Papers (between 6000 to 8000 words in 12 pts Times New Roman fonts) are currently being invited for the next 2005 Edition of IRCALC African Literary Journal ALJ. Critical perspectives have dwelt on new and existing African writing, transcriptions of African oral literatures, including writings of the diaspora.
While writers and participants have come mainly from the United States, Nigeria, South Africa, India, and a few other commonwealth countries, the board of editors currently wishes to have more contributions from across the Cameroons, Mauritania, Ghana, Guinea, which would include all Francophone and Lusophone countries in upcoming editions.
Scholars and organisations are also invited to join IRCALC mailing list. IRCALC membership is free and cuts across racial and demarcations.
We would be delighted if this message could be shared with other scholars in your country who would wish to further the confederacy's goals of promoting a more imaginative approach to Africa's development issues via the rich literary and cultural heritage of the continent.
Deadline for Submission: May 1, 2005
