For writers, artists, scholars, and filmmakers …

Call for Papers for the 2015 Issue of the Digital Literature Review: Slavery Now.

For writers, artists, scholars, and filmmakers, the issue of slavery is as relevant now as at any time in our history. In recent years, we have seen an impressive outpouring of fiction, film, and other kinds of narrative and artistic works that engage with the history of slavery. In many of these texts, we see major efforts to continue the exploration of the disastrous history of slavery in the Americas, its aftermaths, and its continuing impact on modern societies. At the same time, we are slowly coming to grips with the fact that there have never been more slaves in the world than there are today.  The Walk Free Foundation recently issued its Global Slavery Index, a comprehensive report that found that currently there are nearly 30,000,000 slaves in the world. Artists, writers, and filmmakers continue to draw attention to this issue through their work and to examine the devastating global presence of slavery, both in the past and the present.

The Digital Literature Review, an online journal of literary and cultural research featuring the work of undergraduate students, seeks excellent essays that engage with the full complexity of “slavery now.”

Possible topics include:

• Readings of historical texts, fictions, or slave narratives enabled by contemporary theoretical perspectives.

• Studies of texts that engage with slavery and trafficking in the contemporary world and with the global presence of slavery throughout history.

• Neo-slave narratives, novels, and films that depict various kinds of slaveries, both of the past and the present.

Papers should be between 3000 and 5000 words, should adhere to MLA Style, and should be submitted in PDF format. We expect submissions to be well researched and to contribute to an ongoing scholarly conversation. Papers selected by our editing staff will have the opportunity to revise.

All submissions are due by January 5, 2015. For submissions and further information, please visit our website,

We also welcome shorter original submissions for the journal’s accompanying blog, which can be found at Submissions for the blog should address the theme of “Slavery Now” and should be between 400-700 words, should adhere to MLA style, and should be submitted in PDF format. On our blog, we publish many different types of pieces: reviews of movies, books or television programs, short analyses of a cultural text or an individual episode in a cultural text, an exploration of a particular theoretical approach to slavery, interesting findings that emerge from a research project, etc.

For particular queries about the blog or the journal, please contact our editors at
