Special Issue – Black Timescapes: Tapestries of Africa in Premodern Iberia
Edited by Nicholas Jones
Deadline -November 1, 2020, sorry for the late notice!
Submission details at this link:
We invite essays that analyze the temporal mutability, remixing, and shifting of the meaning and codification of Africa, its cultures, ecologies, and inhabitants in premodern Iberia. We also welcome research notes that dialogue with and elaborate upon keywords related to Africa and Blackness as they’re constructed, imagined, and visualized in premodern Iberia and beyond (e.g., Anglophone, Asian, and Mediterranean contexts). The fundamental goal is to feature rigorous studies that explore, reclaim, and revisit the remixing of Iberian Blackness in its artistic, historiographic, literary, material, and visual modes. Of particular interest are submissions that address medieval contexts as well as the discourses of medievalism that reimagine the special issue’s theme at hand.
