Call for Papers: "Arab Diaspora Women"

The summer 2006 "file" (special issue) of Al-Raida (
http://www.lau.edu.lb/centers-institutes/iwsaw/raida.html ) will
highlight Arab women living outside the Arab world, defined as those
countries not members of the Arab League. Al-Raida is published both in
English (hardcopy & online) and in Arabic (exclusively online). 

As the editor of this upcoming file, I am looking for submissions
dealing with the following topics, amongst others:

- employment, social rights, equal opportunities
- Arab minority and immigrant organisations
- culture, education and research activities
- anti-discrimination, legal rights, grass roots mobilisation, coalition
- country studies, case studies, testimonials
- historical overviews (highlighting countries of emigration and/or
- hybridity, identity overlap or switching, e.g. the diaspora experience
of non-Arab women from Arab countries living abroad
- religious minority women from the Arab world, e.g. Christians and Jews

Please feel free to suggest additional topics.  The summer 2006 issue 
will be divided into a peer-reviewed section, for fully sourced, scholarly 
articles, based on original research, and a non-refereed section containing 
general interest submissions and material that has been reworked, based 
on previous publications. 

Please send an abstract of your proposed article by 15 December 2005.
All articles must be submitted by 31 March 2006.
