Call for Submissions

The Postcolonialist is an online magazine and journal launching in the Fall of 2013. The publication seeks to be an alternative and interactive avenue by which scholars, journalists, artists, and activists from around the world can collaborate and engage in dialogues of culture, power, and civil society in Postcolonial regions (encompassing the Americas, the Caribbean, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Diasporic communities, and indeed the ex-métropoles). With a focus on multi-lingual and cross-regional work, The Postcolonialist endeavors to view the global South and its diaspora in concert. We seek to displace notions of 'center' and 'periphery,' instead showcasing the artistry, innovation, and critical production of postcolonial regions and peoples as constitutive of and central to a globally interconnected future.

Enclosed please find the Call for Submissions. We are also taking applications for the Editorial Board. Please send a letter of interest, a CV, and a writing sample if interested in an editorial position.
