From the FLP mailbox, this message from the Call for Papers:
The Freedom Center Journal (“FCJ”) is a joint scholarly publication of the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center and the University of Cincinnati College of Law. The purpose of the FCJ is to foster discussion and debate about the scope and nature of freedom, broadly defined. The FCJ pursues its mission by publishing interdisciplinary works by a broad range of scholars and students on, among other things, issues of race, class, gender, sexuality, and religion.
Our inaugural volume includes new scholarship by Angela Harris, Alfred Brophy, Margaret Montoya, Christine Zuni Cruz, Courtney Cahill, Kevin Noble Maillard, and other prominent legal scholars.
Issue One of Volume Two of the Freedom Center Journal will focus on the issue of immigration/migration. We are interested in all facets of immigration/migration including, but not limited to, the impact of gender, race, class, and sexuality on the immigrant experience; examination of the reasons certain people migrate to certain places; examination and discussion of current immigration laws in the United States; historical analyses of particular migrant patterns; and modern day slavery and its connection to migration.
Paper proposals (in the form of abstracts) are due by December 1, 2008. Responses to proposals will be sent on December 8, 2008. Please also note that final drafts based on accepted proposals must be completed by March 2, 2009.
