Call for Papers: The New Black and The New Negro: Generational Tensions between Blackness, Colorlessness, and Post-Black –

Transnational Literature (formerly Quodlibet: the Australian Journal of Trans-national Writing) is a freely accessible, fully refereed international e-journal published twice a year by the Flinders Institute for Research in the Humanities, Flinders University, Adelaide, Australia.

The journal aims to publish high-quality academic work in English produced by scholars who are conducting research in the areas of

  • Postcolonial literatures · New Literatures · International Writing · Literature crossing cultural or national boundaries · New readings of canonical and historical literature

Unpublished papers not currently under consideration by any other publisher are invited from both Australia and overseas. Postgraduate and Honours students are encouraged to submit papers. There is no charge to submit or publish work in Transnational Literature. Previously unpublished creative work including poetry, stories and life writing, and translations into English, will also be considered for publication. Book reviews are an important part of the journal’s mission. Reviews should be 800-1200 words long. Suggestions for books to be reviewed are welcome, and scholars interested in reviewing regularly for the journal are invited to join the CRNLE mailing list to receive notification of books available for review from time to time.

Authors please note: We will usually be happy to include reviews of your publications if they fall within the journal’s areas of interest. Please contact the editor in the first instance. The independence of the review process is important, and we cannot accept unsolicited reviews written by associates of the author.

Please consult Transnational Literature‘s submission guidelines.

Submissions should be sent by email to
