Deadline: August 31, 2020
In response to AATSEEL’s recent statement concerning systemic racism and police brutality in the United States, Slavic and East European Journal is seeking submissions for a special issue on the politics of race in Slavic, East European and Eurasian literature, film, cultural studies, linguistics, and pedagogy. We envision this cluster addressing three objectives: 1) showcasing cutting-edge research on race studies in our fields and interrogating matters of majority-minority power relations in the context of race and ethnic studies; 2) advancing new curriculum ideas and pedagogical approaches on the topic; 3) highlighting our professions’ impactful community engagement, broadly conceived, related to race studies.
To be considered for the cluster, please submit a 500- to 1,000-word abstract and outline of methods and arguments by August 31. Please also indicate the anticipated length of your essay. Authors of selected abstracts will be notified shortly after that and will be expected to submit complete versions (3,000–8,000 words) by November 30, 2020. Depending on the number of abstracts and anticipated lengths, we plan to publish a cluster of 8–12 pieces.
Sunnie Rucker-Chang (Assistant Professor of Slavic and East European Studies and Director of the European Studies Program, University of Cincinnati) has joined Yana Hashamova (Professor of Slavic Studies, Ohio State University; Editor, SEEJ) and Alexander Burry (Associate Professor of Slavic Studies, Ohio State University; Co-editor, SEEJ) for the curation and editing of the cluster.
