As an interdisciplinary formation with anti-disciplinary investments, CES publishes a range of manuscripts, some of which employ methods from academic fields whereas others emerge out of political movement work. Some might be creative, experimental, or provocative in nature. While we plan to have one special issue and open general issue each year, periodically we publish an additional special issue in place of an open general issue in order to address issues of unfolding urgency. Peer-Reviewed Essays : Essays between 6, and 10, words should be prepared according to the most recent edition of the Chicago Manual of Style using endnotes and submitted electronically. Please submit manuscripts in Microsoft Word. Authors should eliminate any self-identifying information such as notes or credits. Book Forum : Departing from the traditional book review format, each CES issue features a forum on a recently published book--or cultural work--that marks new directions in critical ethnic studies.

I condemn the perpetual surveillance, policing, and militarization of law enforcement throughout this country.
