>The editorial staff of the new peer-reviewed journal Ethnoscapes: An

>invites submissions for its inaugural issue on the subject of „Race and
>Coalition.¾ Ethnoscapes maps the development of important themes in the
>field of race and ethnic studies by using a „classic¾ piece as a point of
>departure for a reconsideration of critical issues within the contemporary
>economic, political, and cultural terrain.
>
>While the classic piece establishes the thematic parameters of each issue,
>authors are under no obligation to actively engage the arguments posed by
>that work.
>
>Issue one explores the subject of „Race and Coalition¾ with consideration of
>Stokely Carmichael (Kwame Ture) and Charles V. Hamilton¼s „The Myths of
>Coalition¾ from the 1967 text Black Power: The Politics of Liberation.  In
>their seminal essay, the authors question the viability of coalitions that
>do not seek radical changes in racial hierarchy, include partners with
>disparate amounts of economic and political power, and rely on
>sentimentality and goodwill to build and maintain cohesiveness.
>
>The authors argue instead that viable and productive coalitions must do the
>following:
>
>1)         recognize the self-interests of the groups involved in the
>relationship;
>2)         have the capacity for realizing the self-interests of each group;
>3)         articulate their own „independent base of power¾;
>4)         have specific goals.
>
>Proceeding from this articulation of coalition politics, Ethnoscapes seeks
>manuscripts that investigate the dynamics of „Race and Coalition¾ with
>particular attention to one or more of the following themes:
>
>A) Theoretical Foundations of Coalition. If organizing is no longer forged
>on the basis of shared identity or „unity,¾ what serves as the „foundation¾
>for political mobilization? What new forms of coalition, alliance, or
>issue-based organizing have emerged in the current political, economic, and
>cultural context? Can these convergences operate only temporarily or can
>they be more sustained? How can/must/do coalitions negotiate differences
>along the lines of gender, sexuality, nationality, religion, and class in
>articulating a shared platform? What productive alliances have been or can
>be forged between different marginalized groups? What makes these coalitions
>cohere? How do these projects (re)shape experiences of race and ethnicity?
>
>B) The Multicultural Terrain of Organizing in the United States. With the
>rise of Asian/Pacific American and Latino/a social movements, how is the
>concept of „coalition¾ being rearticulated today? Does the „people of color¾
>construct, expressing the common bonds of non-white groups, still make
>sense? What new challenges to coalition-building emerge in the context of
>the variable power relations of nations, economic operations, and discourse
>that characterize the contemporary multiracial terrain of US organizing?
>What strategies can be mobilized to negotiate these differences? What roles
>are available to whites in multiracial coalitions and in coalitions for
>racial justice?
>
>C) The Global Context. What challenges and possibilities do new
>communications and other technologies linking people across the globe offer
>for multiracial coalitions? How do the ties of nation, state, and culture
>complicate efforts to organize pan-ethnically? How can models of organizing
>around race throughout the world, or on behalf of racially identified groups
>and concerns, usefully inform organizing strategies in the US context, or
>vice versa? What is at stake and where are we headed?

>„Transnational Migration, Race, and Citizenship¾
>
>The editorial staff for the new peer-reviewed journal Ethnoscapes: An
>Interdisciplinary Journal on Race and Ethnicity in the Global Context
>invites submissions for its second issue on the subject of „Transnational
>Migration, Race, and Citizenship.¾ Ethnoscapes maps the development of
>important themes in the field of race and ethnic studies by using a
>„classic¾ piece as a point of departure for a reconsideration of critical
>issues within the contemporary economic, political, and cultural terrain.
>
>While the classic piece establishes the thematic parameters of each issue,
>authors are under no obligation to actively engage the arguments posed by
>that work.
>
>Issue two explores the subject of "Transnational Migration, Race, and
>Citizenship" with consideration of the chapter "The Shock of Alienation"
>from Oscar Handlin's ground-breaking The Uprooted: The Epic Story of the
>Great Migrations that Made the American People. In this chapter, Handlin
>investigates the relationships between labor, cultural membership,
>citizenship, and the production of racial difference. Citing violence
>against Chinese and Filipino immigrants in the early 19th century, he
>details the ways in which labor tensions in the US were integral to the
>establishment of federal anti-immigration policy aimed at these
>"unassimilable" groups. According to Handlin, cultural variation and poverty
>status became the criteria used to infer an ostensibly inherent racial
>inferiority that served as the basis for denying Chinese and Filipino
>immigrants the rights and protections that accompanied citizenship.
>
>While labor, cultural membership, and race remain central components of the
>current complexities of immigration, new concerns have emerged since the
>1951 publication of Handlin's Pulitzer Prize-winning history. On one hand,
>new signs of deterritorializationãthe increasing incidence of dual
>citizenship, home-country remittances, expatriate involvement in
>home-country politics, and "diasporic" community-buildingãhave led some to
>assert the declining relevance of the nation-state as a primary attachment
>and the declining significance of citizenship itself. On the other, debates
>and policy developments around immigration and citizenship suggest that the
>nation-state's power to regulate the movement of labor and capital within
>and across borders is far from obsolete. In particular, state power
>continues to have a profound impact on racialized disparities, processes of
>racialization, and on the burdens and benefits of citizenship. In this new
>context, we are compelled to reconsider the nature of transnational
>migration, the nature of citizenship, the link between the two, and the role
>of race in mediating that link.
>
>To this end, the „Transnational Migration, Race, and Citizenship¾ issue of
>Ethnoscapes seeks manuscripts that investigate:
>A) Economic Flows, Migration, and Racialized Disparities
>How is migration racialized/ethnicized and gendered? What is the
>relationship between late capitalist economic operations, migration, and
>racialized disparities in health, education, self determination and
>representation, and wealth? In what ways do „citizenship gaps¾ãspaces in
>which market participation forecloses political membershipãre/produce
>racialized disparities globally?
>
>B) Borders, Boundaries, and „The Nation¾
>How is immigration policy racialized? What is/should be the current role of
>the nation-state in generating policy that regulates the movement of wealth
>and people across borders and in regulating resultant disparities? What
>forms of regulation/governance that exceed the nation-state can be
>conceptualized? What role does cultural nationalism play in political
>membership? What transnational forms of political and cultural membership
>are/can be imagined?
>
>C) Processes of Racialization
>In what ways are immigrant populations affecting domestic racial hierarchies
>and racial identities? How are transnational cultural flows affecting
>conceptualizations of race and ethnicity? Their relationship to nation?
>
