Annoucement - New Publication in African and Black Diaspora Studies
The Founders and Editors, Fassil Demissie (DePaul University), Sandra Jackson (DePaul University) and Abebe Zegeye (University of South Africa) and Routledge – an imprint of Taylor & Francis Group - are pleased to announce the launching a new peer reviewed publication, the International Journal of African and Black Diaspora Studies scheduled for publication in 2008.
The International Journal of African and Black Diaspora Studies is devoted to a critical interrogation of the trans/national movements, locations and intersections of subjectivity within the African and Black Diaspora in the context of globalization as well as in different discourses, practices and political contexts. The journal maps and navigates the theoretical and political shifts imposed by the nation state to provide a counter-narrative of subject positions of people of the African descended populations grounded in cultural and political responses.
The aim of the journal is to advance the analytical and interrogative discourses that constitute the distinctive and interdisciplinary field of African and Black Diaspora Studies in the production of knowledge of the deterritorialised and transnational nature of the African diaspora. Moving beyond essentialist modes of theorizing, the journal locates the movement of African and Black Diaspora (geographic, cultural, political and psychological) in the context of globalized and transnational spaces.
The journal seeks to broaden and deepen African and Black Diaspora Studies by providing a forum for new historical and theoretical interventions to map out the intersections and multiple narratives with other diasporas in all part of the globe. The journal seeks to historicize these diasporic dis/locations, movements and intersections, analyze their relationality across fields of social relations, subjectivities and identities across time and space.
The International Journal of African and Black Diaspora Studies will expand its engagement with the rapidly widening circle of African and Black Diaspora scholars and other researchers throughout the world in the production and dissemination of cutting edge scholarship that situates Africa and its diaspora actively within the discourse of knowledge production.
