Full Title: InterDISCIPLINARY Journal of Portuguese Diaspora Studies (IJPDS)

Call Deadline: 30-Apr-2012

The InterDISCIPLINARY Journal of Portuguese Diaspora Studies (IJPDS) is
an online, as well as printed, peer-reviewed academic journal, to be published
annually, and in affiliation with Anderson University, Indiana. The first volume
of the journal is scheduled for fall 2012. The editors of the IJPDS welcome
contributions from scholars in the humanities and social sciences, as well as
writers and poets working in areas of the Portuguese diaspora within a
transnational sense of community and self. We are particularly interested in
proposals from a wide array of scholarly proveniences, approaches and
perspectives that embrace a construct of Portuguese diaspora identity whose
discourses and ideas travel across time and space. Under the rubric of
'diaspora' we also encourage papers that engage in the exploration of the
Portuguese diaspora in a comparative and global context. Papers for this
volume may focus on a wide range of topics related to the Portuguese
diaspora, including, but not limited to: return migration and deportation;
emergence of transnational communities; processes of integration into host
societies; ethnic entrepreneurship; reproduction of ancestral cultural contexts;
diaspora and linguistic practices; education; identity and diaspora discourse;
diaspora in literature, the arts, and the media. Creative work in the form of
poetry and short stories will also be considered for publication. IJPDS
accepts papers on an ongoing basis, however prospective contributors for the
first issue of the journal are invited to submit papers in final form by April
30th, 2012. For submission guidelines follow the instructions at:


The InterDISCIPLINARY Journal of Portuguese Diaspora Studies (IJPDS)
aims to provide a multidisciplinary, intercontinental, and polyphonic forum,
which will permit dialogue among Portuguese and non-Portuguese scholars
involved in research and creative work related to the Portuguese diaspora
throughout the world. The journal publishes original research, evaluation
studies, case reports, review articles, and book reviews. We also accept
narratives representative of the Portuguese diaspora and whose message is
conveyed in visual texts (photography), and/or creative/fictional writing (such
as poetry and short stories). The works to be submitted may be written in
English, Portuguese, Spanish, or French.
