call for submissions: "field notes on the 9/11 moment: transformations in community and country"

Just wanted to post another reminder about this... As we approach the ten-year anniversary of 9/11 in 2011, South Asian Americans Leading Together and Race/Ethnicity: Multidisciplinary Global Contexts are inviting submissions for an issue entitled "Field Notes on the 9/11 Moment: Transformations in Community and Country."

This issue, to be published in June 2011, will provide an opportunity to discuss and engage with the complexities presented by the 9/11 moment for communities in the United States and the rest of the world. Here are some more details:
Q. Who can submit?

A. We invite submissions from anyone who wishes to share reflections, critiques, and analysis connected to the 9/11 moment. For example, we encourage activists,and community-based organizations who responded to the crisis that enveloped the South Asian, Muslim, Sikh and Arab American communities after 9/11 to submit, as well as international experts, and academics.

Q. What can I submit?

A. Submissions can include analysis, critiques, reflections and documentation. Topics can include, but are not limited to:

* How has 9/11 changed the way we think about race, religion, national origin and immigration status in the United States and abroad?
* What tools and strategies have been used by community activists to sustain and build community during and after the 9/11 moment?
* How does being targeted as "suspect" by the United States government impact an individual? A family? A community?
* What are some coalition-building and race relations success stories since 9/11?
* What lasting impacts, if any, have the events of 9/11 and their aftermath had on relationships between racial and ethnic minority communities in the United States or abroad?
* What lasting impacts, if any, have 9/11 and the subsequent decade-long global War on Terror had on the political consciousness of Arab American, South Asian, Muslim and/or Sikh communities inside or outside the United States?

Q. What is the deadline and how do I submit?

A. The deadline for all submissions is October 15, 2010. Final submissions should be sent to shortlidge.2@osu.edu.
