Cover of Kalfou journal

Announcing a new journal!

Kalfou: A Journal of Comparative and Relational Ethnic Studies has launched through a partnership between the UCSB Center for Black Studies Research and Temple University Press. Edited by George Lipsitz, the journal is designed to connect anti-subordination scholarship to the ideas, experiences, archives, and imaginaries of organic intellectuals, activists, and artists from aggrieved communities.

Following the legacies of the Black radical tradition, the journal is interdisciplinary, international, intergenerational, and intersectional in its approaches to engaged anti-racist scholarship and civic work, as its contributors strive to create a world transcending citizenship.

First issue available FREE! (site registration required to view)
