Now in its twenty-eighth year, the Journal looks for manuscripts which address the fluidity of postcolonial, transnational, diaspora, or cosmopolitan studies. We seek to publish work in both thematic (migration, diaspora studies, etc.) and geographic (Eurabia, South Asia, etc.) areas:

  • Bioethics, Ecology, and Ecocriticism
  • Migration, Diaspora, Hybridity, and Borders
  • Region, Religion, Politics, and Culture
  • Literature, Arts, and the Media
  • History and Historiography
  • War and Terrorism
  • Race, Racism, Class, Gender, Sexuality, and Ethnicity
  • Ethics, Economics, and Globalization
  • Pedagogy and the Disciplines
  • Intersections of Francophone and Anglophone Literatures
  • Postcolonial and the Transnational Literatures
  • Liberation literature from Africa
  • Health and Wellness
  • North (excluding the USA), Central, and South America
  • Europe (Fortress Europe, Eurabia, Londonistan, Ireland)
  • South Asia (Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka)
  • Southeast Asia (Brunei, Burma, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam)
  • Africa (Nigeria, South Africa, Black Atlantic)
  • The Middle East
  • Australia and Oceania

Or any other aspect of the British Commonwealth of nations, or of countries formerly colonized by other European powers.

Our usual publication process is to alternate one open number with one focused special edition. A glance at our Contents archive will illustrate this process.
