Solicitation for articles to be included in a collection of essays that considers the inherent quality of meta-fiction in 20th century solder narratives such as Vonnegut's, Slaughterhouse-five; Ambrose's, Band of Brothers, and the works of Tim O'Brien. French philosopher Jean Baudrillard discussed the postmodern qualities of texts that blur the lines between fiction and non-fiction, saying that a sort of hyper-reality is created. Among the possible questions presenters might address are these: What is the nature of the interplay between fiction and experience within the soldier-memoir, soldier-account, and soldier-novel? What are the genre distinctions at work in the soldier narrative as non-fiction or fiction?

Submissions are invited for a collection of critical essays that examine James Baldwin's life, fiction, and nonfiction with the most recent scholarship from Black Masculinity Studies. Essays may employ cultural studies and/or a post-colonial critical lens for explicating specific texts as well as interdisciplinary approaches that demonstrate the relevance or usefulness of using Baldwin's texts to examine, explore, or discuss Black masculinity within other disciplines (besides Literary Studies). Submissions by emerging, as well as, established scholars are welcomed.
Possible topics may include (but are not limited to):
This issue of La Questione Meridionale / The Southern Question proposes to explore the situation of minorities in the south of Italy as well as southern Italian migrant communities outside Italy who are themselves minorities in their respective social, political and cultural situations.
Projected publication date for the issue is early 2010.
