Call for Submissions: Co-edited Collection on Revolutionary Movements and Visual Representation
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS FOR EDITED COLLECTION: Imprints of Revolution: Global Resistance, the Popular, and (Post)/(Neo) Colonialism
Imprints of Revolution: Global Resistance, the Popular, and (Post)/(Neo) Colonialism is an edited collection that explores public representations of socialist revolutions. The edited collection assesses how the concept of revolution is appropriated through public images and explores its re-conceptualization as a mobilizing practice in response to contemporary global issues. The goal of the collection is to explore how revolutions are imagined and re-imagined by governments, residents, and political actors, and how in turn these imageries function as responses to the specific issues of globalization and mass tourism. We would like to discuss the local, urban experiences of revolutions both trans-nationally and trans-culturally. Contributors are encouraged to explore any aspect of revolutionary experiences but should develop the political and historical links between their topics and the revolutionary movement in question.
We are especially interested in, but are not limited to, scholarship that focuses on the visual legacies within Cuba, China, Ghana, Mexico, the United States, and Vietnam. We anticipate this to be a multidisciplinary work and invite submissions from emerging and established scholars working within any field. Scholars in anthropology, cultural studies, history, literature, political studies, communication studies, American studies, ethnic and/or race studies, media studies and gender studies are especially encouraged to submit proposals.
If interested, please submit a 500-word abstract of the proposed chapter, as well as sources consulted / cited and a brief biography of 200 words of less detailing professional and academic qualifications by October 15, 2012. All materials should be submitted electronically by April 15, 2013. Essays will be subject to a peer-review process.
Please send proposals and inquiries to both editors at:
Lisa B.Y. Calvente (DePaul University) firstname.lastname@example.org
Guadalupe García (Tulane University) email@example.com
