Buildings & Landscapes: Journal of the Vernacular Architecture Forum Buildings & Landscapes: Journal of the Vernacular Architecture Forum Michael J. Chiarappa and Margaret M. Grubiak, Editors
Buildings & Landscapes examines the built world—houses and cities, farmsteads and alleys, churches and courthouses, subdivisions and shopping malls—that make up the spaces that most people experience every day. Strongly based on fieldwork and archival research that views buildings as windows into human life and culture, articles are written by historians, preservationists, architects, cultural and urban geographers, cultural anthropologists, and others involved with the documentation, analysis, and interpretation of the built world. Formerly titled Perspectives in Vernacular Architecture, Buildings & Landscapes is published twice a year
Critical Ethnic Studies Critical Ethnic Studies Neda Atanasoski and Christine Hong, Editors
Critical Ethnic Studies will explore the guiding question of The Critical Ethnic Studies Association: how do the histories of colonialism and conquest, racial chattel slavery, and white supremacist patriarchies and heteronormativities affect, inspire, and unsettle scholarship and activism in the present? By decentering the nation-state as a unit of inquiry, focusing on scholarship that expands the identitarian rhetorics of ethnic studies, engaging in productive dialogue with indigenous studies, and making critical studies of gender and sexuality guiding intellectual forces in ethnic studies, this journal will appeal to scholars interested in the new methodologies, philosophies, and discoveries of this new intellectual formation. It will form a unique and unparalleled venue for emerging ethnic studies scholarship.
Cultural Critique Cultural Critique John Mowitt, Cesare Casarino, Simona Sawhney, Maggie Hennefeld and Frieda Ekotto, Editors
Cultural Critique provides a forum for creative and provocative scholarship in the theoretical humanities and humanistic social sciences. Transnational in scope and transdisciplinary in orientation, the journal strives to spark and galvanize intellectual debates as well as to attract and foster critical investigations regarding any aspect of culture as it expresses itself in words, images, and sounds, across both time and space. The journal is especially keen to support scholarship that engages the ways in which cultural production, cultural practices, and cultural forms constitute and manifest the nexus between the aesthetic, the psychic, the economic, the political, and the ethical intended in their widest senses. While informed by the diverse traditions of historical materialism as well as by the numerous critiques of such traditions from various parts of the globe, the journal welcomes contributions based on a variety of theoretical-methodological paradigms.

NAIS NAIS Gina Starblanket and Heidi Kiiwetinepinesiik Stark, Editors
Native American and Indigenous Studies seeks to be the leading forum for scholarship in the local, regional, and global work of this emergent field. As the journal of the Native American and Indigenous Studies Association (founded in North America in 2008), NAIS participates in the process of framing, deploying, and otherwise critically challenging the local and global contours of Indigenous studies. Similar to the way NAISA’s annual meeting has become the premier academic meeting in the field, the editors of NAIS are committed to creating a lively and rigorous space for the publication of the most excellent and pathbreaking scholarship pertinent to Indigenous studies scholars. Like the association, NAIS is based in North America, but seeks to bridge the distances between scholarly locations across the Indigenous world. Thus, NAIS is committed to actively soliciting contributions across a broad spectrum of fields, approaches, and geographical locations.

Verge: Studies in Global Asias Verge: Studies in Global Asias Tina Chen, Editor
VERGE is a start-up journal that will promote interdisciplinary critical scholarship across Asian, Asian American, and transpacific studies. The title refers to the idea that these fields are on the verge of a new era of scholarship that moves beyond the traditional divide between Asian and Asian American studies. These disciplines have traditionally defined themselves in opposition to one another, with the former oriented toward the national and political and focused on area-studies, and the latter emphasizing categories such as ethnicity and citizenship that draw mainly on the history of the US. Verge will provide a venue for scholars to rethink national and regional insularities and push the boundaries of Asia as both a place and a concept. It will promote scholarship that is transnational, challenges US-centrism, and recognizes the ongoing importance of Asia to the Asian American experience. The journal is committed to presenting studies of Asian influence in a global context, and will address the ways that the history of Asia has been produced in, for example, Europe, South Asia, Latin America, and Africa. The editors plan to publish essays most commonly in history, literature, visual culture, sociology, anthropology, and political science, creating a new dynamic of scholarship across these fields. Verge is an initiative of the Asian Studies Program at Penn State University.
