We are soliciting essay proposals for a multidisciplinary anthology on social, economic, political, and cultural practices generated by Africans and Asians in the context of and aftermath to German colonialism. Recent scholarship on German colonialism has shed new light on our understanding of the relationship between colonizer and colonized, the nature and complexity of "colonial governmentality", the colonial state and local institutions, and the connection between ideology, textual discourses, and social, economic, cultural, and political practices. The anthology is designed to contribute to the ongoing discussion of German colonialism with a focus on the agency of those who were affected by German colonialism in Africa and Asia. Essays from all fields are welcome. 300-500 word abstracts are due by May 1; completed essays are due February 1, 2010.
