Kaleido[scopes]: Diaspora Re-imagined, the Williams Africana student journal, is seeking journal submissions. This year’s journal issue will be shaped by the academic contributions of Williams students. For example, we welcome journal submissions from students who may have completed a creative or noncreative project or paper in any AFR classes last semester. However, as long as journal submissions fulfill the guidelines, any and all submissions, from any major, are welcome. 
 
Additionally, we are seeking student contributors for the Kaleido[scopes] student blog, Scopes, that will exist as a digital space to share and explore a wide range of topics at the heart of Africana Studies. Scopes is an open forum that welcomes not only ‘academic’ contributions but also social commentary (such as engagement with trending Twitter topics, campus life, or current events), artistry and music, and other forms of sharing that reflect an investment in Africana Studies and/or Black life. Contributors need not commit to regular submissions, we welcome both one-time and regular contributions. 
The submission guidelines are the following:
Journal submissions
    • All submissions should be on topics centered around Africana Studies
    • Submissions may be in various mediums. Written pieces, video projects, artwork, poetry, music and more are welcome
    • Critical pieces should be formatted in 12 pt. Times New Roman, single spaced with 1-inch margins (if applicable) and should be a minimum of 500 words and a maximum of 4000 words
  • Any external source material should be properly cited in MLA format
  • Submissions do not have to be in English

    • Submissions may be in various mediums. Written pieces, video projects, artwork, poetry, music and more are welcome
