Transscripts: A Journal in the Humanities and Social Sciences at UC Irvine -- “Race: Theories, Identities, Intersections, Histories, and the ‘Post-Racial’ Society.”
Trans-Scripts – a new interdisciplinary online journal in the Humanities and Social Sciences based at the University of California, Irvine – invites graduate students to submit their work. The theme of the inaugural issue will be “Race: Theories, Identities, Intersections, Histories, and the ‘Post-Racial’ Society.”
By contributing work, unpublished students can gain experience of the peer-review process and achieve their first publication, while those already published gain further professionalization. Work should be between 3,000 and 12,000 words, including footnotes. The deadline for submission is 19th September, 2010. For the journal’s submission guidelines and mission statement, see the website at http://www.humanities.uci.edu/collective/hctr/trans-scripts/. For any further inquiries, contact the editors at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to selected student work, renowned academics will contribute editorial pieces, offering students the chance to place their work in conversation with experts in various fields. Provisional agreements have been made with faculty including Pal Ahluwalia (University of South Australia), Frank Dikötter (University of Hong Kong), Dan Cohn-Sherbok (Emeritus, University of Wales), Colin Dayan (Vanderbilt), Elizabeth Abel (University of California, Berkeley), William Deverell (University of Southern California), and Hortense Spillers (Vanderbilt).
