Aims and Scope:
Atlantic Studies provides an international forum for research and debate on historical, cultural and literary issues arising within the new disciplinary matrix of the circumatlantic world. In particular, it seeks to foster a transcultural dialogue between the two hemispheres and, specifically, among the nations of Europe, the Americas and Africa.
The Journal aims to celebrate the original Atlantic mappemonde: a highly critical space, centered not on a single nation or land mass but on a new cosmopolitan interchange of ships and peoples, cultures and texts, ideas and tools.
Published on behalf of MESEA (The Society for Multi-Ethnic Studies: Europe and the Americas), the Journal aims to be an important site for scholarship on the comparative study of multi-ethnic cultures and societies. It challenges nationalist histories and literatures by focusing on the Atlantic as an arena of cultural change and exchange, translation and interference, communication and passage.
Atlantic Studies accordingly invites submissions in the areas of history, cultural studies, critical theory, and literature from academics, public intellectuals, contemporary commentators, and activists whose focus of interest lies in circumatlantic perspectives. The Journal will also publish work based on such visual materials as photography, film, and information media. Each volume will also include book and media reviews.
Atlantic Studies encourages both scholarly research and timely critical debate on current issues within its chosen paradigm. In as much as they develop a comparative and intercultural perspective, essays on race, class, gender, ethnicity and on human rights, citizenship and identity politics will also be welcomed.
In the first instance, please send all contributions as Word 6 (95) or rich text format email attachments to Stephen Fender, firstname.lastname@example.org. Articles should be no longer than 7,000 words.
Submissions should be in English, typed in double spacing (including all notes and references).
Submission of a paper to the journal will be taken to imply that it presents original, unpublished, work not under consideration for publication elsewhere. By submitting a manuscript, the authors agree that the exclusive rights to reproduce and distribute the article have been given to the Publishers.
MESEA, The Society for Multi-Ethnic Studies: Europe and the Americas, was founded in response to the challenge of ethnic studies in a time of increasing globalization to provide an international forum for interdisciplinary discussion on multi-ethnic studies. The Society promotes the study of the ethnic cultures of Europe and the Americas in their circumatlantic relations from a transdisciplinary literary, historical and cultural studies perspective. The society acts as a forum for cooperation between universities, political institutions and ethnic communities as well as supports the scholarly and cultural exchange between them in order to further multi-ethnic understanding.
