CALL FOR PAPERS: Dossier on “Afro-Brazilian Studies”


BrasilianaJournal for Brazilian Studies will be publishing an issue in late 2019 foregrounding recent scholarship on Afro-Brazilian studies in a multi-disciplinary dossier. Following recent international initiatives such as the United Nations declaring the “Decade for People of African Descent” (2015-2024), this dossier seeks to bring together contributions and reflections on the theme in Brazil and beyond, fostering dialogues with the international scene, especially those referring to the broader connection with the African diaspora. 

The Journal is currently accepting articles on the various aspects of this field from the perspective of a wide range of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences which have engaged with this topic (anthropology, sociology, law, history, economics, linguistics, literature, music, cinema, visual arts). Brasiliana also welcomes interdisciplinary approaches and those that take on themes relating to public policies, participation, action , and the Afro-Brazilian struggle and experience. 

This issue will be the first edited by Dr Felipe Botelho Correa (King's College London), who is stepping in as the new Editor-in-Chief of the Journal. 

The editorial team would like to thank Dr Vinicius Mariano de Carvalho for all his work in creating and editing this journal!


Articles should be submitted online before 30 June 2019. Articles may be submitted after this date, but might not be included in the dossier on Afro-Brazilian Studies.

For publication guidelines, please see the journal’s website:


The journal Brasiliana continues to accept submissions of articles and reviews of recent publications related to Brazilian studies, which are published regularly.
