Call for Papers


InterDISCIPLINARY Journal of Portuguese Diaspora Studies


The InterDISCIPLINARY Journal of Portuguese Diaspora Studies (IJPDS) welcomes original contributions for the third issue of the journal to be published in the fall 2014. Researchers in the humanities and social sciences are encouraged to submit papers in final form by March 30th, 2014.

IJPDS represents original interdisciplinary scholarship that engages with key issues in Portuguese diaspora studies. We are particularly interested in proposals from a wide array of scholarly proveniences, approaches, and perspectives that embrace a construct of Portuguese diaspora identity whose discourses and ideas travel across time and space. Under this rubric, we also encourage papers that engage in the exploration of the Portuguese diaspora in a comparative global context.

Manuscripts in English, Portuguese, Spanish, or French are accepted for review and must be accompanied by an abstract in English, as well as in the original language in which the paper is written.

Papers submitted are to be sent for peer reviewing. IJPDS will not consider submissions that have already been published or are under consideration elsewhere.
Book reviews of emergent publications to Portuguese diaspora studies are welcome.
For submission guidelines, please follow instructions here.
