Image: Book cover Call for manuscripts for a new book series: Gendering the Trans-Pacific World:  Diaspora, Empire, and Race (GTPW).

Series Editors: Catherine Ceniza Choy, University of California, Berkeley, Judy Tzu-Chun Wu, The Ohio State University
This new series makes two important intellectual interventions. First, taking our cue from "Atlantic World" scholarship, this series promotes Pacific World frameworks to understand the connections between the lands, people, cultures, and environments that are in and border the Pacific Ocean.  Second, this series foregrounds and analyzes the gendered nature of the Pacific World. It does so by focusing on three phenomenon:  Diaspora, Empire, and Race.

Works in the Gendering the Trans-Pacific World series will explore how people have dispersed across the Pacific for trade, labor, migration, cultural exchange, and military engagement. Gendering the Trans-Pacific World seeks scholarship that offers innovative approaches to understanding these complex trans-Pacific power relations, particularly in connection to North America.

The editors are particularly interested in the era of the long 20th century, extending back to the late 19th century and forward into the 21st century, although works on other periods of time are welcome. We also invite interdisciplinary scholarship that frames historical and contemporary phenomenon through feminist, critical race, and post-colonial analyses.  We welcome social and cultural history; biography; as well as interdisciplinary works that examine art, photography, film, and literature.  

Manuscripts (preferably in English) should be at least 90,000 words in length. The editors would be interested to receive proposals for specialist monographs and syntheses, but may also consider multi-authored contributions such as conference proceedings, and thematic issues, and source translations and edited texts.

A Critical Study
Heather Brown

"This short, comprehensive handbook will no doubt provide the basis for a new wave of feminist engagement with Marxism and is a clarion call for all those who regard themselves as Marxists to re-evaluate their ideological conceptions. Heather Brown allows us all to read Marx with new eyes."
