Hello all,

The Australian Critical Race and Whiteness Studies (ACRAWSA) ejournal is currently calling for submissions for a special issue on the theme: Post-Racial States. 
Post-Racial States takes as its focus the term, “post-racial”, used to describe the media and political environment in the United States following the election of Barack Obama. The Post-Racial States issue asks whether we can say there is such a thing as a “post-racial” state, media or political environment. Does the idea of a “post-racial” state overlook the continuing occurrences of racial discrimination, the negation of Indigenous sovereignties, and the importance of anti-racism projects in exposing and challenging institutional and social racisms? Submissions need not be limited to Obama’s election. The issue is also interested in the relevance, if any, of this event to race relations in other cultural, political and geographical contexts.
Submissions for the special issues are welcomed from now until July 30th 2010. Articles should be between 4,000-8,000 words in length (double spaced pages) including tables, notes and references. An abstract of 200-300 words should accompany the article indicating the special issue the author wishes to be considered for. Submission guidelines can be found at ACRAWSA’s website: www.acrawsa.org.au

We also welcome shorter pieces of creative or analytical writing (up to
1000 words), visual material, or reviews of books, films, plays etc. related to the special issue themes. Submissions and enquiries about the issue should be sent to Dr. Holly Randell-Moon: publicityofficer at acrawsa.org.au
