Palimpsest: A Journal on Women, Gender, and the Black International is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes cutting edge interdisciplinary scholarship and creative work by and about women of the African Diaspora and their communities in the Atlantic and Indian Ocean worlds. A partnership between Vanderbilt University's Program in African American and Diaspora Studies and the State University of New York Press, the goal of Palimpsest is to engender further explorations of the Black International as a liberation narrative and Black Internationalism as an insurgent consciousness formed over and against retrogressive practices embodied in slavery, colonialism, imperialism, and globalization, from the early modern period to the present. Drawing on the traditions of African diasporic studies and feminist/womanist thought, the journal will feature analyses of Black women's histories, experiences, and cultural productions. More specifically, the editors solicit work that considers the intersections of race, class, gender, color, and sexuality in the histories, social and political movements, expressive cultures, spiritual formations, and philosophical thoughts of women as well as the ways in which women locate themselves, and have been located, on the map of human geography. Scholars from a broad range of disciplines are encouraged to contribute, and a primary consideration for inclusion is an essay's capacity to resonate with and critically engage the interdisciplinary fields of African American and Diaspora studies and women's and gender studies.
