CESA Journal CFP Special Issue 4.1 "The Academy and What Can Be Done" (March 1st, 2017)

What is to be done about the university? This is at least a double question, because of what the word “done” can do in the English language. Done can mean acted upon, engaged, intervened upon, changed. “Done” can also be finished, completed, made to be over. So in this themed issue we are teaming with guest editor Ashon Crawley to ask about the university: what about it can be changed, and what about it can be finished.

Call for Papers, Special Issue - Critical Ethnic Studies

This special issue will bring together compelling discussions of corresponding and sometimes competing definitions of justice in critical ethnic studies. Each paper will respond to a set of questions designed to reveal the salient points of convergence and difference between intellectual/political traditions and approaches (e.g. Indigenous sovereignty, Black radical traditions, queer of color critique, Native feminisms, third world feminisms, Afropessimism, disability/crip studies, trans* and multigender theories, border and migration studies, critical refugee studies).  The submission deadline for this Fall 2016 special issue is September 30, 2015.
