An extensive body of scholarship has analyzed the history and significance of blackface, particularly in the US. More recent work has directed attention to its global contours. In an effort to offer a comparative account of transnational blackface, the editors seek original interpretations of embodied enactments of blackness in lesser known, unexpected, and challenging cultural contexts. We welcome essays that track the traffic of blackface, examining the flows, appropriations, and translations that make it meaningful within and across cultural, racial, and national boundaries.
Interested scholars should send a 250 word abstract and brief CV to the editors (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com) no later than 3 January 2014. Essays of 20-30 pages will be due 1 June 2014.
