Routledge Book Series – Post-COVID World: Academics, Politics and Society
Series Editors: Lewis Gordon, Rozena Maart, Epifania Amoo-Adare and Sayan Dey
The biomedical crisis of COVID-19 has opened up a floodgate for other kinds of crisis like communal violence, racial discrimination, geographical hierarchies, socio-political hegemonies, academic exclusivities, etc. These crises are catalyzing massive geo-political shifts of the various epistemological and ontological frameworks of knowledge production across the globe. The shifts are bound to influence patterns of thinking and doing in a Post-COVID era. This book series will focus on various forms of academic, social and political transformations that are expected to take place in a Post-COVID World, with respect to the various crises. The advent of COVID-19, has resulted in major shifts affecting pedagogical frameworks, curricular structures, institutional infrastructures, evaluation patterns, international policies, political ethics, communal relations, gender existence, racial connotations, mental health and physical wellbeing. These are transformations that will continue to take place in a Post-COVID era. Keeping these shifting scenarios at the forefront, this book series will critically analyze various forms of transformation that take place in academic, social and political systems across the globe in a Post-COVID era.
CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
This special issue aims to intervene into and substitute these gaps of knowledge, by presenting and accrediting the themes, debates, positions, interventions, struggles and movements across the broad spectrum of Black feminist theories of the global African diaspora (i.e. African Feminism, Womanisms, Afro-Brazilian theories and activism, Afro-Caribbean, Afro-Turkish feminist theories), in order to discuss these topics in the context of transnational dimensions of Black feminist theories. It also aims to highlight the different approaches, epistemological frameworks and political interventions that are developed as analyses, research and critiques of intersectional relations of oppression. Against this backdrop, we would like to provide a fertile ground for future discourses of Black feminist theories – which are and have always been essential for critical theory – within German-speaking contexts, while accentuating their broad range, depth and diverse intellectual contributions.
We look forward to articles, with a theoretical, empirical or methodological focus and/or contributions combining these aspects. We also welcome contributions which investigate and highlight the political and social significance of art and the production of cultural, as well as aesthetic contributions from Black feminist theories.
