CESA Supports the Kiaʻi of Mauna Kea

Call for Papers, Special Issue - Critical Ethnic Studies

This special issue will bring together compelling discussions of corresponding and sometimes competing definitions of justice in critical ethnic studies. Each paper will respond to a set of questions designed to reveal the salient points of convergence and difference between intellectual/political traditions and approaches (e.g. Indigenous sovereignty, Black radical traditions, queer of color critique, Native feminisms, third world feminisms, Afropessimism, disability/crip studies, trans* and multigender theories, border and migration studies, critical refugee studies).  The submission deadline for this Fall 2016 special issue is September 30, 2015.

Call for Papers - Critical Ethnic Studies

Critical Ethnic Studies provides a space for unique and insurgent critique within ethnic studies. It explores the guiding question of The Critical Ethnic Studies Association, which is: how do the histories of colonialism and conquest, racial chattel slavery, and white supremacist patriarchies and heteronormativities affect, inspire, and unsettle scholarship and activism in the present?
