Palimpsest: A Journal on Women, Gender and the Black International is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes cutting edge interdisciplinary scholarship and creative work by and about women of the African Diaspora and their communities in the Atlantic and Indian Ocean Worlds. A partnership between Vanderbilt University’s African American and Diaspora Studies Program and the State University of New York (SUNY) Press, the goal of Palimpsest is to engender further explorations of the Black International as a liberation narrative; and Black Internationalism as an insurgent consciousness formed over and against retrogressive practices embodied in slavery, colonialism, imperialism, and globalization, from the early modern period to the present.
CFP: The inaugural issue will focus on the theme: Liberations Across Boundaries. Submissions that broadly address this theme as well as others that are in line with the journal's general mission are nonetheless welcome for forthcoming volumes. Deadline for inaugural volume inclusion: February 2011.
