Offer: A Call For Articles: Pambazuka Special Issue On Race Relations In Brazil

From AWID (see link below)

Pambazuka News is organizing a special issue for November 2013 on the specific theme 'Racial Relations in Brazil.'

"Given the role and status of Brazil in the current global world order, as an emerging power from the South, some crucial issues in the social development of the country must be discussed. That specific issue is the problem of racial relations is an old one in Brazilian society. It is a country popularly known as a 'racial paradise.' However, this foundational myth relies on the cordial relations of the races (black, white and indigenous), but fundamentally Brazil has so far made little efforts to solve this problem.

November is the month historically chosen to celebrate black consciousness in the country. It is the month when Zumbidos Palmares, who founded the maroon (quilombo) society of freed African slaves during the 17th century in northeastern Brazil, died on November 20th,1695.

We therefore invite people to write about the dynamics of racism in Brazil in order to publish this issue in this special month for not only black Brazilians, but to remind our readers in Africa and globally that Brazil has historical, political, social and cultural ties to the African continent. We believe that Pambazuka can contribute to the debate on racism in a country that is emerging. Yet Brazil's development will be halted if it fails to resolve the structural racism and its psychological impact that continues to withold human development in that country."

Authors are invited to write on any of the following topics (however, the list below is not exhaustive):

• Racism and gender relations;
• Race and class;
• Racism and education;
• Racism and psychology;
• Racism and childhood;
• Racism and the youth;
• Environmental racism;
• Institutional racism;
• Case studies of racial problems;
• Compared perspectives on racism

Deadline for submission of articles in Portuguese, English and French languages is October 26th, 2013
