Call for submission of articles for a special issue of _Life Writing_
on "Mixed Race, Hybrid, Transnational: Writing Lives in National and
Global Frames."
The editors invite articles that theorize and read mixed race, hybrid,
and transnational subjects represented in all forms of life
writing—autobiography, memoir, biography, diaries, letters,
autobiographical novels, other forms of creative non-fiction, and
more. We are open to new research on hybridity, multiple
subjectivities, interculturalism, flexible citizenships, and all forms
of crossings and overlapping identities and narratives, and are
particularly interested in studies that recuperate historical and
neglected texts and that move their interpretative perimeters to
include experimental and mixed life writing genres. Counter-academic
and creative non-fiction work on these subjects will be considered for
the "Reflections" section of this special issue.

We welcome submissions from diverse territories in the Americas,
Africa and the Middle East, Asia, Pacific-Oceania, and Europe. All
articles will be peer-reviewed. Please send submissions to
guest-editor Shirley Geok-lin Lim ( or associate
guest-editor Caroline Hong (, at Department
of English, University of California, Santa Barbara, California 93106,
U.S.A., by December 30, 2005, for a publication date of September
