- Editors' Note
This special issue of CR is titled After the Third World and is edited by Neville Hoad, Molly O'Hagan Hardy, Coleman Hutchison, Jeremy Dean, James H. Cox, and Barbara Harlow.
CR: The New Centennial Review is devoted to comparative studies of the Americas. The journal's primary emphasis is on the opening up of the possibilities for a future Americas that does not amount to a mere reiteration of its past. We seek interventions, provocations, and indeed, insurgencies that release futures for the Americas. In general, CR welcomes work that is inflected, informed, and driven by theoretical and philosophical concerns at the limits of the potentialities for the Americas.
Such work may be explicitly concerned with the Americas or it may be broader, global and/or genealogical scholarship with implications for the Americas. CR recognizes that the language of the Americas is translation, and that therefore questions of translation, dialogue, and border crossings (linguistic, cultural, national, and the like) are necessary for rethinking the foundations and limits of the Americas.
For forty-five years, CR has been a journal committed to interdisciplinarity, [End Page ix] and we continue to encourage work that goes beyond a simple performance of the strategies of various disciplines and interdisciplines, and interrogates them.
We currently are soliciting work for Special Issues or Special Sections on the following topics, among others:
• New Paths in Political Philosophy
• Animals . . . In Theory [End Page x]
