X-Posted from H-NET List for African History and Culture <H-AFRICA@H-NET.MSU.EDU> From: Joyce Youmans <youmans@MAIL.H-NET.MSU.EDU> _______ From: "Kurt B. Young" <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Sat, May 22, 2010 7:43 am THE JOURNAL OF PAN AFRICAN STUDIES SPECIAL ISSUE: REVISITING FRANTZ FANON Guest Editor: Kurt B. Young The Journal of Pan African Studies is inviting manuscript submissions for its special issue on Frantz Fanon. The broad focus of this issue will be to commemorate fifty years since Fanon's death with reflections on the scope, depth and impact of his life, activism and scholarship. The dedication of such an effort to Fanon's legacy is indeed timely. The significance of the Martiniquean psychiatrist, theoretician and revolutionary's legacy can be measured by his sustained relevance to generations of thinkers, practitioners, academics, and students. The issue will explore these general themes: The life and times of Frantz Fanon, Fanon's intellectual contributions, Fanon and contemporary Africa, and Fanon's Diasporic relevance. Possible manuscript topics may include: ˇ Emerging Perspectives on the life of Frantz Fanon ˇ Rethinking and reconceptualizing Fanon ˇ Négritude and culture in Fanonian thought ˇ Fanon on consciousness and the anti-colonial struggle ˇ Fanon and postcolonial discourse ˇ Fanon in the Pan African context ˇ Africa and the African Diaspora since Fanon ˇ Fanon in the Caribbean radical tradition ˇ Fanon and the Black radical tradition ˇ Fanon and revolutionary Black nationalism in the United States General Guidelines: ˇ The Journal of Pan African Studies seeks works that: present original research methods/theory, add to a body of research, announce research findings, guide future research, explore theories, distribute new knowledge, present new ideas, invite discussion, introduce research reviews, and provide new terminology centered in Pan African Studies. ˇ Submitted articles should have: an introduction, literature review (annotated bibliographies accepted), a methodological construct, results, discussion, conclusions, and suggested steps for further research that can intellectually engage scholars, students and others with interest in African world community studies (Pan African Studies). ˇ As a trans-disciplinary scholarly journal devoted to a synthesis of African world community studies and research that works to ask questions and seek answers to critical contemporary and historical issues, based on an affirmative African centered logic and language of liberation, we have decided not to use the term 'tribe' or slaves in reference to the African experience. Therefore all contributors should acknowledge this policy before submitting content. The preferred alternative terms-concepts include 'ethnic group' and 'the enslaved'. In regards to the use of the word black, when it is used to indicate people of African heritage, we recommend that it be capitalized. Submission Requirements: ˇ The entire work, including a concise title, a 150 word abstract, and standard scholarly citations, should not exceed twenty-five (25) double-spaced pages. ˇ All manuscripts must be original (hence, not under consideration anywhere) and submitted to the guest editor in MS word format via e-mail. ˇ No drafts will be accepted. Only abstracts and full papers should be submitted. ˇ Do not place page numbers or paper title (on each page) on the manuscript. ˇ Place all notes and the bibliography at the end of the manuscript. ˇ Articles (or parts of articles) in languages other than English will be considered, however they must also be presented in English. ˇ All submissions must list the author's current affiliation and contact points (location, e-mail address, etc.). ˇ In regards to style (APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.), use what is standard in your area of study. Camera ready manuscripts will receive first preference in the publishing cycle. ˇ Manuscripts must be submitted no later than August 15, 2010. ˇ Final revised manuscripts will be due no later than October 15, 2010. Please submit manuscripts for the special issue as an email attachment in MSWord format to Kurt B. Young at: email@example.com.
