Appel à contribution for a special issue on « New Histories of Twentieth-Century Decolonization », Canadian Journal of History/Annales canadiennes d’histoire (CJH/ACH), 2017

lundi 18 avril 2016, par Dominique Taurisson-Mouret

Date limite de soumission : dimanche 15 mai 2016
  • Special issue co-edited by Christopher Dietrich (Fordham University) and Maurice Jr. Labelle (University of Saskatchewan) to be published in Winter 2017

Scholars have begun to see decolonization as a multi-sided process — a complex dialogue with the imperial past, filled with unrealized expectations and unintended consequences. Reflections and analyses on decolonization reveal that a rich diversity characterizes this emerging field. The co-editors welcome submissions that adopt global and transnational perspectives on the history of twentieth-century decolonization, as well as submissions that examine traditional imperial, diplomatic, or regional frameworks in new ways. Potential authors are encouraged to submit on the following topics, as well as others : imperialism, nationalism, and the origins of decolonization ; transnationalism and the formation of anti-colonial networks ; decolonization and the Cold War ; decolonization and globalization ; neo-liberalism and postcolonial sovereignty ; the rise of postcolonial thought ; immigration and the cultural decolonization of the West ; decolonization and Indigeneity ; the rise of human rights in postcolonial nations ; decolonization and the problems of global governance ; and statelessness in a post-imperial international system.
