Dear colleagues,

Please find below and attached the CFP for a Special Edition of the journal New Scholar. Please feel free to distribute this to your respective networks.

Call for Papers
‘The View from Above: Cosmopolitan Culture and its Critics’

We are calling for papers for a Special Edition of New Scholar that will explore the notion of cosmopolitanism, both as a utopian project and as an object of critique. This Special Edition follows on from the conference, The View from Above: Cosmopolitan Culture and its Critics, which was held at the University of Melbourne on 22 and 23 September 2014. We invite contributors (especially postgraduate students and early career researchers) to submit papers (scholarly and/or creative) that address some aspect of cosmopolitanism. Potential topics include:

· old and new cosmopolitanisms (including the influence of classical, medieval and early modern texts on more recent understandings of the cosmopolitan)
· cosmopolitan sensibilities in colonial, postcolonial and diasporic literatures
· cosmopolitanism and class
· feminist engagements with cosmopolitanism
· cosmopolitanism and sexuality
· cosmopolitanism, advertising, popular culture and everyday life
· transnationalism and globalisation, parochialism and provinciality
· cosmopolitan readerships and polities; the role of translation
· creative practice and the cosmopolitan
· the text as a cosmopolitan space
· utopianism and cosmopolitan futures

Submissions should be 4000-6000 words in length, and must be submitted via the New Scholar website by 12 January 2014. Articles will be single-blind peer reviewed. Submissions must conform to the Author Guidelines for New Scholar. These Guidelines are available at http://www.newscholar.org.au/index.php/ns/about/submissions#authorGuidelines

For any queries on this Special Edition, please contact the editorial committee at viewfromaboveconference at gmail.com
