Looks like our internet service provider has been hacked and so our website is down. Hopefully they will be able to resolve the problem soon. We don’t want to give the hacker too much attention, but at least we can say he’s an Asian.

From the website of Trans-Scripts:
– a new interdisciplinary online journal in the Humanities and Social Sciences based at the University of California, Irvine – invites graduate students to submit their work. The theme of the inaugural issue will be “Race: Theories, Identities, Intersections, Histories, and the ‘Post-Racial’ Society.” Race has long been constructed differently across place and time. Recent British National Party successes in the UK underlined continuing race and class tensions surrounding immigration. Race informs Anti-Indian attacks in Australia, land ownership in Zimbabwe, discrimination by caste in India, and anti-Chinese laws in Indonesia. Conflicts in Palestine and Darfur, and international media coverage of them, are also in part defined by racial views. Claims that the U.S. is entering a “post-racial” period are belied by debates over healthcare, anti-immigration laws and reparations for slavery that continue both inside and out of academia. Just these few examples suggest that understanding different approaches to race remains crucial.
Trans-Scripts welcomes all submissions that engage topics related to “race.” They may, but certainly need not, address the examples above. As we believe that scholarship from a variety of approaches can help inform contemporary understandings, submissions need not conform to any disciplinary, methodological, temporal, or other criteria. They need only be original, well researched, and properly cited in MLA style. English language contributions from all universities in all countries will be considered.
By contributing work, unpublished students can gain experience of the peer-review process and achieve their first publication, while those already published gain further professionalization. Work should be between 3,000 and 12,000 words, including footnotes. The deadline for submission is 19th September, 2010. For the journal’s submission guidelines and review process, see here
. Please, see our mission statement
as well. For any further inquiries, contact the editors at email@example.com
In addition to selected student work, renowned academics will contribute editorial pieces, offering students the chance to place their work in conversation with experts in various fields. Provisional agreements have been made with faculty such as Pal Ahluwalia (University of South Australia), Frank Dikötter (University of Hong Kong), Dan Cohn-Sherbok (Emeritus, University of Wales), Joy James (Williams College), Colin Dayan (Vanderbilt), Elizabeth Abel (University of California, Berkeley), William Deverell (University of Southern California), Hortense Spillers (Vanderbilt), and Tiya Miles (University of Michigan).
In Washington, a local couple is searching for a bone marrow donor for their 4-year-old son. Because the parents are of different races, it is very difficult to find a match. And time is running out. The boy only has 12 weeks left. Are you a mixed Indian/Caucasian? Do you know any friends who are mixed Indian/Caucasian? Please contact the family or spread the word.
