The Postcolonialist Calls for Submissions on ‘Sites of Home’

A recently launched online magazine and journal, The Postcolonialist, is calling for submissions for the upcoming edition of its academic journal. The Postcolonialist is an inter-disciplinary, multi-lingual publication featuring research, commentary, and creative production from and about postcolonial regions and perspectives. The About page of the website adds: 

We are an alternative and interactive avenue by which scholars, journalists, writers and artists from around the world can collaborate and engage in dialogues of culture, power, and civil society in postcolonial regions, including but not limited to the Americas, the Caribbean, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Diasporic communities in métropoles across the globe

Submissions are welcome in English, French, Spanish, and PortugueseThe theme for Winter/Spring 2014 peer reviewed full-length entries is “Sites of Home”:

We seek pieces that explore the ways in which physical and imagined spaces of familiarity and belonging (linguistic, physical, artistic, political, and social) are made and unmade in light of globalization, digital technology, and mass migration. We desire innovative work that challenges and redraws the contours of modes of belonging, creating new “zones” of nationhood and citizenship through the lens of (de)colonial geography.

The due date for peer-reviewed submissions for the Academic Journal to be released in the Spring volume is February 14, 2014. Other types of submissions are accepted on a rolling basis. Inquiries and submissions may be sent to editorinchief@postcolonialist.com.
