Genocide Studies International

In keeping with the objectives of the International Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies, this journal is dedicated to raising knowledge and awareness among scholars, policymakers, and civil society actors by providing a forum for the critical analysis of genocide, human rights, crimes against humanity, and related mass atrocities. Genocide and other forms of mass violence are constantly evolving, and we encourage scholarly submissions that address their continually changing nature. This includes interdisciplinary and comparative work on the history, causes, impact, and aftermath of genocide and related crimes, as well as those which contextualize genocide in relation to conflict, exploitation, colonialism, racism, bigotry, sexism, oppression, and globalization. We also welcome submissions that explore the challenges and prospects for the long-term prevention of genocide, as well as those that focus on global and regional threats to human security, especially as they relate to genocide. Consequently, this peer-reviewed journal publishes articles from various disciplines including, but not limited to, history, political science, sociology, psychology, international law, criminal justice, critical race studies, religion, philosophy, literature, anthropology, forensic sciences, art history, and women’s, gender, and sexuality studies.

Diaspora

Diaspora was founded in 1991, capturing the zeitgeist of a world where borders are transgressed and elastic, boundaries are fractured and permeable, identities increasingly fluid and adaptable. The forces of globalization reinvigorated old diasporas, and stimulated and supported the creation of new ones. Diasporas evolved from being the paradigmatic ‘Others of the Nation State’ to ‘exemplary communities of the transnational moment’ (Khachig Tölölyan, The Nation-State and its Others: in Lieu of a Preface, Diaspora 1(1991) 3-7).

The establishment of Diaspora was a seminal moment in marking what has become the field of Diaspora Studies, setting out and nurturing an expanding project that recognizes its roots in historic Jewish, Armenian, and Greek diasporas, to include and embrace transnational formations and phenomena challenging the established models and concepts for the study of nation-states, societies and cultures. This substantive transformation of the discourse of diaspora studies has entailed theoretical reflection, and a vigorous and continual rethinking of older definitions on behalf of more capacious conceptualizations of new forms of dispersion, diaspora and transnationalism. Discourses ranging from Postcolonial Studies and World Literature, and themes from environmental migrants to global networks, contribute to this work that rethinks mobility and mobilization and thus reorients traditional accounts of home, homeland, host state and diaspora.  Diaspora welcomes the contributions of scholars from across the social sciences and humanities who share these intellectual concerns.

Editors:

Prof. Talar Chahinian, University of California Irvine

Prof. Sossie Kasbarian, University of Stirling

Popular titles include:

  • Diasporic Return
  • Deconstructing the (Re)construction of South Asian Identities in Canada
  • Islands, Diaspora, and Creolization Issue
