We are looking for potential contributors for a proposed edited book COLOMBIA READER: MAPPING CONTEMPORARY CULTURE, which we are co-editing with a view to publishing with a US press. We expect the volume to include a wide range of international scholars.
THE COLOMBIA READER seeks to situate the study and discussion of contemporary Colombia culture within current theoretical frameworks.
We are looking for unpublished articles written in English from a broad range of disciplines that use multidisciplinary approaches from inside and outside the geographical space of Colombia. The preferred length would be about 4000 words.
Topics may include, but are not limited to, the following:
-narratives of citizenship and/or political systems
-nation and collective identity
-the representation of bodies
-revisiting armed conflict (paramilitary, guerrillas, army, narco-trafficking).
-displacement, kidnapping, and other acts of violence
-literature, TV, film, art, music and media that focus on contemporary Colombia
-global, diasporic, and local movements
-conceptual and visual arts
-race, class, gender
Abstract of 500 words by April 1st, 2013. Articles be due September 1, 2013.
If you are interested in participating in this project, please let us know soon. We will be happy to answer any questions.
