Dear Friends and Colleagues,
CALL FOR PAPERS
The Social Text Collective is pleased to accept papers for a forthcoming
special dossier on the work of Edward Said.
Deadline: September 30, 2004
The editors of Social Text invite contributors to pay tribute to Edward
Said, an admired colleague and friend. In its first issue Social Text
published Edward Said’s essay, “Zionism from the Standpoint of Its
Victims” (1979), a chapter in the then forthcoming book, The Question of
Palestine, and, almost a decade later, the journal dedicated a special
issue to “Colonial Discourse,” featuring an interview with Said, along
with essays dialoguing with his work.
As a way of remembering Edward Said, Social Text announces a special
issue edited by Gyan Prakash and Ella Shohat. This issue hopes to
reflect on themes central to Said’s work, highlighting his interventions
in the politics of knowledge, and his impact on a number of fields. In
the spirit of Said’s writings, we invite contributions that cross
geographical and disciplinary boundaries, while also reflecting on his
life and work in relation to the major transformations, shifts and
contradictions in our intellectual and political landscape.
Papers should be submitted by e-mail if possible, as an attachment saved
in Microsoft Word. The text should be double-spaced, no more than 8,000
words, with numbered endnotes. For style, please follow the Chicago
Manual of Style, 15th edition. The author’s name, affiliation, address
and telephone number should be listed on the front page of each copy.
