SAQ Call for Proposals: Special Issues
The South Atlantic Quarterly is accepting proposals for thematic special issues through April 15, 2024. Themes should be in line with those of journal issues published in recent years, including critical race studies, feminist and queer theory, analyses of contemporary capital and labor, social and liberation movements, critical theory, and environmental humanities.
Special issue editors are responsible for soliciting essays, working with authors, editing texts, and assuring that deadlines and word counts are met. Funds are available to translate original essays not written in English.
SAQ Call for Proposals “Against the Day”
SAQ is accepting proposals for “Against the Day” dossiers. Dossiers should focus on a contemporary social or political struggle. Recent topics have included clashes over citizenship laws in India; protests since 2019 in Lebanon; and the gilets jaunes (yellow vests) movement in France. See https://read.dukeupress.edu/south-atlantic-quarterly/issue/120/3#3952-174129 to read the most recent “Against the Day.” Funds are available to translate original essays not written in English.
Special-issue editors are responsible for soliciting essays, working with authors, editing the texts, and assuring that deadlines and word counts are met.
Proposals should include a description of the concept or theme that organizes the issue (roughly 200 words) plus names of potential authors with very brief bios. Please indicate whether authors have already been contacted. Please propose, too, a date by which the complete, edited collection can feasibly be submitted.
Dossiers are composed of 15,000 words total. This is often configured as three 4,000-word essays plus an introduction, but editors are free to configure differently the number and length of essays.
Please send proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org.
