Diaspora is dedicated to the multidisciplinary study of the history, culture, social structure, politics, and economics of both the traditional diasporas – Armenian, Greek, and Jewish – and the new transnational dispersions which in the past four decades have come to be identified as ‘diasporas.’ These encompass groups ranging from the African-, Chinese-,Indian-, and Mexican-American to the Ukrainian- and Haitian-Canadian, the Caribbean-British, the Antillean-French, and many others.

    Contributors/Authors Survey

    Contributors are key to our journals’ success. If you are/have been a contributor to Diaspora and would like to tell us about your experience, please complete our contributor survey. Thank you! We value and appreciate your input.

    INFORMATION FOR AUTHORS

    Diaspora welcomes articles on all aspects of the topics with which it is concerned: diaspora and related forms of dispersion, transnationalism, nationalism, ethnicity, globalization, and postcoloniality. The journal welcomes studies of specific diaspora communities, whether past, existent, or emerging, and on all aspects of the sub-national, transnational, and globalizing phenomena that now challenge the nation-state and supplement the old international order, including but not limited to migrating peoples, world literature, mobile cultures and media, nomadic ideas, and works of art that traverse frontiers.

    We welcome contributions from the disciplines of anthropology, art history, cultural studies, economics, geography, history, linguistics, literary and postcolonial studies, media studies, political science, psychology, religious studies, sociology, and interdisciplinary fields including—but not limited to—African-American, Asian-American, and Latin-American Studies and ethnomusicology.

    Manuscript Submissions:

    Authors must submit a digital file of their manuscript (in Microsoft Word) to the Editors at diaspora@utpress.utoronto.ca. Because manuscripts will be refereed anonymously, the author’s name and all contact information should be on a separate title page.

    Manuscript Preparation:

    Please use 1" margins on a Letter-sized (8½×11") page. All material must be double-spaced, including citations longer than four lines, which should be indented from the extracts, poetry, and figure legends. Sections must be assembled in the following order: title page listing the author’s full name and address, telephone, fax, and e-mail, as available; text; references; figure captions; endnotes. Acknowledgments should appear as words) and appropriate keywords (up to 5) with your submission. Ordinarily, contributions should not exceed 10,000 words (including notes and References).

    Diaspora follows the recommendations of the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th ed., chapter 14 (“Documentation I”). In-text citations are in author–date format: (Suzuki 2005, 76). No footnotes are used; endnotes should be used in moderation, and only to provide additional explanation as needed—not to offer bibliographic information.

    Examples:

    (1) Books: Gallop, Jane. 1985. Reading Lacan. Ithaca, NY: Cornell University Press.

    (2) Journal articles: Baily, Samuel. 1969. “Italians and the Development of Organized Labor in Argentina, Brazil, and the United States, 1880–1914.” Journal of Social History 3:123–34.

    (3) Articles in edited collections: Powell, B.G. 1990. “Voting Turnout in Thirty Democracies: Partisan, Legal, and Socio-Economic Influences.” In Electoral Participation: A Comparative Analysis, ed. R. Rose, 5–34. London: Sage.

    Citations (with or without page references) should appear parenthetically in the text, not in endnotes, and should give the author’s surname and publication date. Thus, the quotation mark ending a citation will be immediately followed by the source notation, for example (Gallop 1985, 23). All other bibliographic information about such texts is relegated to the References.

    After a manuscript has been accepted for publication, authors must send an up-to-date CV to the Editor. The journal will publish suitable illustrations in black and white (color illustrations can be accommodated in the online version). Illustrations must be submitted as high-resolution (min. 300ppi) EPS, TIFF, or JPEG files.

    Authors are responsible for obtaining permission to reprint extracts and reproduce illustrations. Copies of permission forms must be supplied with the final manuscript. All necessary credits and acknowledgments must be included with the figure captions, which must be included in the article file.

    The article file should be prepared accurately, consistently, and simply, avoiding the use of special fonts or elaborate formatting for aesthetics. Paragraphs should be formatted in the same way throughout. Please use Word’s Notes function to insert endnotes numbered in Arabic numerals. Greek and other non-Roman characters, accented characters, italics (not underlining), superscript, and subscript should be typed in Word as much as possible; when a special character cannot be inserted using Word, it should be represented by an available character that is not otherwise used, and authors should provide a translation key to those characters in the cover letter. Authors should be aware that an electronic file is considered final material. Substantive changes should not be made during the copyediting stage following acceptance; the copy-editing process will be facilitated by submission of a carefully prepared manuscript using correct and complete documentation.

    Contributors’ Copies: Authors of articles and review essays in Diaspora will receive 2 free copies of the journal issue in which their article appears.
