Call for submission of articles for a special issue of _Life Writing_ on "Mixed Race, Hybrid, Transnational: Writing Lives in National and Global Frames."
The editors invite articles that theorize and read mixed race, hybrid, and transnational subjects represented in all forms of life writing—autobiography, memoir, biography, diaries, letters, autobiographical novels, other forms of creative non-fiction, and more. We are open to new research on hybridity, multiple subjectivities, interculturalism, flexible citizenships, and all forms of crossings and overlapping identities and narratives, and are particularly interested in studies that recuperate historical and neglected texts and that move their interpretative perimeters to include experimental and mixed life writing genres. Counter-academic and creative non-fiction work on these subjects will be considered for the "Reflections" section of this special issue. We welcome submissions from diverse territories in the Americas, Africa and the Middle East, Asia, Pacific-Oceania, and Europe. All articles will be peer-reviewed. Please send submissions to guest-editor Shirley Geok-lin Lim (firstname.lastname@example.org) or associate guest-editor Caroline Hong (email@example.com), at Department of English, University of California, Santa Barbara, California 93106, U.S.A., by December 30, 2005, for a publication date of September 2006.
