Black Women's Politics/Cultural Expression - Special Issue Inter/Sections
The study of social and cultural movements has seldom included the cultural expression of women - particularly black women. This special issue examines how women of the black diaspora use various means of communication to articulate their position within a particular social or cultural movement. Specifically, the volume is a collection of interdisciplinary essays that address the role of black women as producers of revolutionary film, talk radio, television, folk art, music, literature, fashion, etc. Of central concern is the meaning(s) of their texts and the role that they play within the context of a particular movement. The issue will include a wide variety of social/cultural movements from various cultures and historical periods. Articles that address the audiences for these texts are especially encouraged.
The deadline for abstracts (approx. 500 words) and a copy of your c.v. is December 15.
Submissions should be sent to Celeste A. Fisher and Katharine Sarikakis at the address below.
E-mail submissions are encouraged.
Selected contributors will be expected to provide complete manuscripts within three months of notification by the special issue editor, Celeste Fisher.
Inter/Sections is an interdisciplinary journal that provides space for academics - especially emerging scholars who are stepping outside the boundaries of conventional academic scholarship in culture and communication.
