Chiasma: A Site For Thought

Chiasma: A Site for Thought was established in September 2013 as an annual, double-blind, peer-reviewed journal for the generation and dispersion of theory. While recognizing ‘theory’ as a pursuit born of the crossing of continental philosophy, social and political theory, literary criticism, media studies, and cultural studies, Chiasma: A Site for Thought places emphasis on those genetic moments that displace theory from its history, without abandoning it to an auxiliary position between disciplines. The journal therefore aims at the affirmation of theory’s own powers to recombine and mutate the societal, historical, and academic coordinates from which it comes.

Mouvances Francophones

Mouvances Francophones (MF) est une revue électronique interdisciplinaire, évaluée par des pairs, et dont l’accès est libre. La Revue accepte actuellement des propositions d’articles (en français de préférence) de la part de professionnels qui définissent la francophonie sub-saharienne (ici principalement les écrivains et critiques).

Les écrivains africains s’expriment en français pour atteindre des lecteurs nationaux et internationaux, les ex-colonisés d'Afrique et d'ailleurs, comme les nationaux des pays colonisateurs ou simplement francophones. D'un autre côté, les littératures francophones post-coloniales sont étudiées par rapport à une identité nationale, et nous nous penchons sur le cas de la littérature francophone « Sub-Saharienne ». Les écrivains francophones sont « sénégalais », « congolais », de la diaspora (le cas des Antilles par exemple), sans compter la zone géographique qu'ils habitent effectivement (Afrique, Europe, Amérique), ni l'arbitraire des frontières rectilignes nationales qui ont divisé des communautés naguère homogènes et indépendantes et qui aujourd'hui divisent certaines ethnies en « minorités » englobées avec d'autres ethnies plus fortunées en ce qu'elles sont restées regroupées. Depuis l'indépendance des colonies d'Afrique, la langue française est alors une langue officielle, que les auteurs utilisent infléchie par l'effet local d'interférences linguistiques ou développements insulaires qui diffèrent de la langue académique française, c'est-à-dire de celle des meilleurs écrivains français canoniques dans l'espace géographique et identitaire de « l'hexagone » français—incluant des écrivains africains tel Senghor.

Reprenant le concept d' « ethnicité fictive » d'Etienne Balibar, Christiane Albert estime que le modèle nationaliste européen élaboré par Herder contre « la conception littéraire universaliste française » supposait « une identité 'naturelle' entre une langue, et une nation qui s'exprimait à travers un patrimoine culturel national garant de « l'âme' d'un peuple » (2005). De ce point de vue, il reste paradoxal que la pratique de l'écriture francophone cimente une unité nationale africaine. Néanmoins, surtout en ce qui concerne le roman de mœurs, une des veine sensible des romancières des années 1980, c’est moins l’universalisme qui est visé, mais une attitude spécifique liée à une pratique ou à la forme spécifique d’interaction locale à réformer ou à repenser—et alors par exemple, la langue française permet de prendre à témoins les groupes externes comme adopter d’emblée une perspective « candide » et « moderne » sur une coutume ou une tradition inutilement blessante.

Depuis 2007, le concept de « littérature-monde » suppose un universalisme cosmopolite qui efface les distinctions entre les littératures nationales pour privilégier la communauté linguistique et abolir les frontières par le qualificatif « francophone » comme distinct de l'identité culturelle française de l'hexagone, ou du Québec, ou « belge ». Par ailleurs, le concept de « littérature migrante » multiplie les nuances et les déclinaisons de « frontières » identitaires, et doubles codes linguistiques, dans la langue française (ou hors de la langue française mais avec elle) et le rapport de la langue à la « nation » d'origine ou d'immigration. La « Littérature Tout-Monde » de Glissant suggère une interpénétration des identités sur un modèle Antillais. L'objectif de ce journal est de suivre les « mouvances » de ces concepts apparemment contradictoires de la francophonie traditionnellement désignée comme « Sub-Saharienne » ou de la diaspora africaine antillaise, et d’étudier la question du qualificatif littéraire de « francophone » à l'aide de textes définissants la « Francophonie » et les coopérations culturelles (ici principalement littéraires) qu'elle recouvre.

Reconciling Research: Perspectives on Research Involving Indigenous Peoples

The practice of seeking out answers to questions about ourselves, others, and the world around us is common to all human cultures. But the questions we ask, who is seen as having the authority to produce answers, and what are “legitimate” ways of answering are uniquely encoded within the culture and its dominant worldview. As a result, there are fundamental differences in the way in which knowledge is constructed under Western and Indigenous paradigms. Researchers who work with Indigenous peoples or on Indigenous issues face numerous challenges in engaging with these paradigms and translating them into methodology. The outcome of these discussions, deliberations, and decisions will ultimately shape the extent to which research enlightens, particularly with respect to policy.

Western science remains the dominant way in which knowledge is produced globally. It is bolstered by an expansive infrastructure that supports it—through the training and credentialing of researchers; criteria related to hiring, promotion, and tenure; research funding; research publication and dissemination, and so forth. Researchers face tremendous pressure to produce research that meets the standards of Western science; yet, many Indigenous and non-Indigenous researchers have recognized that Western science is rooted in colonialism.

At the same time, Indigenous peoples have strongly advocated that their traditional ways of knowing be recognized, particularly in research involving their people. They have argued that these approaches can decolonize research, help to preserve knowledge and culture, and address many of the inadequacies found in Western science.

There have also been movements toward the development of ethical guidelines that relate specifically to Indigenous peoples in order to protect their rights in research and to its products, given the history of exploitation.

This special issue explores issues and perspectives related to research involving Indigenous peoples. Questions include but are not limited to:

  • What are the key epistemological and methodological issues raised by research involving Indigenous peoples? How can researchers successfully address these issues in their research?
  • Can Western science and Indigenous ways of knowing be bridged? Should they be?
  • What are Indigenous methodologies and how do they add to the production of knowledge?
  • How can we work toward ending methodological discrimination in order to give Indigenous methodologies equal standing in the production of knowledge?
  • What are the dilemmas and barriers that researchers face in undertaking research involving Indigenous peoples? How do we effect meaningful change related to the culture and practice of research?
  • What are the ethical issues raised in research involving Indigenous peoples? What is needed to protect the rights of Indigenous peoples?
  • How can these epistemological, methodological, and ethical issues be incorporated into the practice of research?
  • What is needed in order to establish genuine, equal, and mutually beneficial research partnerships with Indigenous people or communities?
  • What can Indigenous peoples and communities do to safeguard their rights, their knowledge, and their ways of knowing in research?
  • How do we translate research into real world benefits for Indigenous peoples?
  • What do policy makers need from research in order to make sound policy decisions?
  • Research, policy (analysis of an issue or commentary based on the literature and/or research), and editorial submissions are welcome.

    Submissions must be made using our online submission system

    Details about preparing a manuscript can be found in our Author Guide

    The deadline for submissions is October 28, 2016

    The special issue will be published in spring 2017 (Northern Hemisphere).
