African Diaspora Archaeology Newsletter

ISSN 1933-8651

African Diaspora Archaeology Newsletter seeks to highlight the complexities of our field through dialogue and exchange. This newsletter also serves as the vehicle to engage with centuries of muted voices uncovered by the archaeological record, politics of representation and narrative, as well as intersections of power, privilege and oppression. One of the many challenges of our discipline is to figure out how to push the scholarly parameters and think more complexly about life across the Diaspora. The material record is always in conversation with the social world, thus reminding us to keep these discussions open.

Best Text Collection

The Best Text Collection is one way the Writing Program (WP) works to highlight and circulate texts created by University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMass Amherst) students for writing courses at all undergraduate levels. Texts are reviewed and prepared for publication by graduate writing instructors, further deepening the WP focus on mentoring teachers of writing on inclusive pedagogical practices by extending these practices to graduate level instruction.

Published annually, each issue presents projects created for any Writing, Identity, & Power (ENGLWRIT111), College Writing (ENGLWRIT112/112H), or Junior Year Writing courses written by current UMass Amherst undergraduate students.

Landscapes of Violence

ISSN 1947-508X

New Call for Proposals

LoV Seeks Photo Essay Proposals on Refugees and Forced Migration

With the intensification of global inequity and the rise of the national security state, human migration, mobility, and transculturality have become central concerns for both policy-makers and researchers. The study of documented and undocumented migration reveals the violent relationship between the Global North and the Global South and the “contentious relationship between sovereignty, space, and freedom of movement” (De Genova and Peutz, 2010). As law making and policy debates devise new ways to criminalize migrants and deploy harsher immigration legislation, it becomes necessary to politically and theoretically interrogate these processes by considering the local and global policies that render new forms of social control not only effective, but also popular.

In this thematic edition of Landscapes of Violence—Refugees and Forced Migration—we seek contributors that explore issues related to migration and refugees across academic disciplines and institutional boundaries. This issue seeks to deepen understanding of the impact of immigration law enforcement and policy-making on people and communities through the lens of studies of violence. We welcome proposals from photographers, community members, students, researchers, and others engaged in work on refugee and forced migration for photo essays. Proposals that consider the historical and cultural contexts and processes in which migration occurs are particularly welcome.

Deadline for proposals: April 21, 2017

To submit a proposal:

Email to LoV Managing Editor Sarah Mathena-Allen at a 250-word abstract, 50 to 100-word bio-sketch, and up to 5 high-resolution photographs (300dpi ".jpg" file) with a caption and credit in a Word document.

Selected Authors

If selected, authors will be asked to submit a 500-word essay and up to 10 high-resolution photographs (300dpi .jpg file) with captions and credits in a Word DOC. Authors must have all relevant permissions to publish in LoV any multimedia content not belonging to them. All submissions must follow LoV submission requirements.

Accepted photo essays will be published in Landscapes of Violence after review by two independent peer referees considered experts in the subject field.

Tentative publishing date: June 30 2017.


Most questions can be answered by reviewing the "about the journal" or "peer-review and open access policies" sections of our webpage.


The goal of Landscapes of Violence (LoV) is to provide a balanced approach to the causes of violence and offer a voice for the human experience behind it. This journal deals with the interrelationships between society and violence seen through the analytical eyes of trans-disciplinary researchers.

Landscapes of Violence: Conflict and Trauma through Time

"Landscapes of Violence: Conflict and Trauma through Time" will take place on April 3 & 4, 2008 at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. This conference will explore the current and future potential of academe to mitigate human rights issues, provide essential services to local, national and international governments, and broaden the dialog between the academic disciplines. The objective is to engage in an interdisciplinary inquiry of the theoretical and empirical issues around the study of violence, warfare, conflict, and human rights. The strength of an interdisciplinary approach to the study of violence is a critical, self-reflective, and non reductionist perspective that allows for a holistic examination of the dynamics that have led to the wide array of human atrocities committed throughout the world.

Tourism researchers and their clients are embracing data and know-how to fearlessly chart new directions for established and emerging destinations, and supply impactful, brilliant experiences for our diverse markets. This year’s conference in Halifax, Nova Scotia will provide a platform for learning about new approaches, lessons learned and the challenges ahead, as we navigate post-truth, virtually-infused, climate change impacted, emerging environments.
