Call for Papers

ABC Studies, the Journal of the Academic Anglophone Society of Romania, invites submissions for a special issue on Post-Racial Americas: Cultural Studies in the Age of Barack Obama, due out in June 2011. The special issue will examine the changing dynamics of race, cultural economy and identity politics in what has been dubbed the ‘post-ethnic’ Americas. We are looking for position papers and critical essays that aim to contribute theoretical reconceptualizations of the global turn in American and Canadian Cultural Studies, particularly under the transformative impact of 9/11 and the 2008 Elections in the US.

Special Issue Editors:

David Howard, Nova Scotia College of Art and Design

Adriana Neagu, Babes-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca

Submission deadline, March 15.

American, British and Canadian Studies appears biannually in June and December. It is a peer-reviewed journal that sets out to explore the intersections of culture, technology and the human sciences in the age of electronic information. It publishes work by scholars of any nationality on Anglophone Studies, Comparative Literary and Cultural Studies, Postcolonial Theory, Social and Political Science, Anthropology, Area Studies, Film and Television, Multimedia and Digital Arts and related subjects. Articles addressing influential crosscurrents in current academic thinking are particularly welcomed. We invite provocative contributions in the form of articles that seek to take Anglophone studies to a new level of enquiry across disciplinary boundaries. ABC also publishes book reviews and review essays, interviews, work-in-progress, conference reports, and research projects outlines. To maintain an ongoing dialogue with our readers, we alternate commissioned themed issues, where papers are actively commissioned by the special issue editor, with issues featuring unsolicited submissions that address themes of immediate interest to us.

Decisions on articles submitted are normally made within two months. Calls for papers inviting submissions to the non-commissioned issues are announced via the journal’s web page and in the journal itself. Our primary goal is to bring together in trans-cultural dialogue scholars conducting advanced research in the theoretical humanities. As well as offering innovative approaches to influential crosscurrents in current thinking, the journal seeks to contribute fresh angles to the academic subject of English and promote groundbreaking research across conventional boundaries. Within the proposed range of diversity, our major scope is to provide close examinations and lucid analyses of the role and future of the academic institutions at the cutting edge of high-tech. To respond to the increasing demands of ‘acceleration’ in the twenty-first century, an electronic edition of the journal is now being made available, offering full access to subscribers, and free access to the tables of contents, abstracts and reviews to non-subscribers. Articles published in ABC are abstracted and indexed on the journal’s website. Detailed guidelines for submission are given on the journal’s website Contributions can include: articles, in-depth interviews with both established and emerging thinkers and writers, notes on groundbreaking research, and reviews of recently published fiction and critical works. Tables of contents and sample full text articles can be viewed without a subscription and our search feature is publicly available.
