CR: The New Centennial Review is devoted to comparative studies of the Americas that suggest possibilities for a different future. CR is published three times a year under the editorship of Scott Michaelsen (Department of English, Michigan State University) and David E. Johnson (Department of Comparative Literature, SUNY at Buffalo; Instituto de Humanidades, Universidad Diego Portales, Santiago, Chile).
The journal recognizes that the language of the Americas is translation, and that questions of translation, dialogue, and border crossings (linguistic, cultural, national, and the like) are necessary for rethinking the foundations and limits of the Americas. Journal articles address philosophically inflected interventions, provocations, and insurgencies that question the existing configuration of the Americas, as well as global and theoretical work with implications for the hemisphere.
We currently are soliciting work for Special Issues on the following topics
Vol. 14.2 Law and Violence (Spring 2014)
Vol. 14.3 Indigenous Aesthetics (Summer 2014)
Vol. 15.1 Auto-Affection (Fall 2014)
Carl Schmitt’s Theory of the Partisan

Centennial Review 4:3 (2004) provides a deep analysis of Schmitt’s contribution to political theory.
