NEW ISSUES and CFP - Colloquy 15, 16, 17 - "Alternative Visions: Philosophies of Freedom in South Asian Diasporic Writing

The latest issue of Colloquy is online. Please have a look at http://www.colloquy.monash.edu.au

This issue publishes general articles plus a section devoted to the Crisis of Memory. There are also many book reviews, a translation, essays and creative pieces. Issue 16, due out in December, will feature articles devoted to Walter Benjamin's "Force of Law."


Colloquy is presently seeking unsolicited submissions for Issue 17 as well as submissions that consider the theme "Alternative Visions: Philosophies of Freedom in South Asian Diasporic Writing." Students of postcolonial studies should find this area of particular interest, although as always Colloquy remains open to researchers from all areas of the humanities with a focus on critical inquiry and creative responses. This issue will be guest edited by Elin-Maria Evangelista, Isabella Ofner and Pooja Mittal.

This issue will also feature select postgraduate papers from the Communications and Media Studies conference, to be held in August 2008, on International and Intercultural Communications in the Age of Digital Media. These papers will consider current understandings of globalization and the most pressing questions facing media and communications scholars today, including relations between the empirical and the theoretical in media cultures in action, what ideas we use to make sense of them, and whether or not disciplinarity is even still a workable idea.

For more information about forthcoming issues and CFPs, please read the editorial of Issue 15 and check the Colloquy website from time to time for further announcements.

Regards, The Editors.
