Thanks, Laura

Call for essays in literature and other arts for special issue on “Labor 
Travels, Art Forms: Geopolitical Economies of Cultural Transformation” 
in /Literature Compass/ (as part of “Global Circulation Project”//).By 
August 4 2014, send 300-400-word proposals to Laura Doyle 
(ldoyle at english.umass.edu) for essays on the 
transnational/transhemispheric formation of aesthetics or cultural 
styles via laborers or labor movements/discourses.Submissions should 
address the creation of cultural forms “from below” and across state 
boundaries, specifically as carried and shaped by migrating/diasporic 
workers or by labor histories, and as catalyzed by international, 
imperial, sexual, racial, capitalist or other geopolitical economies. We 
seek essays on diverse historical eras, including pre-1500 as well as 
post-1500 periods. Most essays will treat literary forms, with selected 
essays on other venues/arts. Interdisciplinary work including historical 
material is welcome; as are theorizations of the co-formation, via the 
movements of labor, of global/transnational and local/national aesthetic 
styles
