The Griot Project Book Series
Series Editor, Carmen Gillespie
African-American Arts: Activism & Aesthetics
Editor: Sharrell D. Luckett
Publication projected for summer of 2017

Signaling such recent activist and aesthetic concepts in the work of Kara Walker, Roxane Gay, BLM, Solange, and Kendrick Lamar, and marking the exit of the Obama Administration, and the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture, this book explores and investigates the role of African American arts in shaping the future, and further informing new directions we might take in honoring and protecting the success of African Americans in the U.S. The collection of chapters in African-American Arts: Activism and Aesthetics will engage readers in critical conversations by activists, scholars, and artists reflecting on the legacies of African American activism as an element of artistic practice, particularly as they concern artistic expression and racism and the intersections of creative processes with aesthetic, economic, sociological, and psychological inequalities. What are the connections between African American arts, the work of social justice, and creative processes? If we conceive of the arts as part of the legacy of Black activism in the United States, how can we use that construct to inform our understanding of the complicated intersections of African-American activism(s) and aesthetics? We invite scholars, activists, artists, and others to submit abstracts engaging the questions and concerns of this book project as they intersect with African-American film, theatre, dance, visual art, music, literature, performance and other art forms from disciplinary, multidisciplinary, and/or interdisciplinary perspectives.

Handbook of Research on Cross-Cultural Business Education
An edited book by C. G. Maheshkar (University of Indore, India) and Dr. V. Sharma (GLBIMR, India)

As an impact of globalization, the business practices are changing very fast in the 21st century. Management education, which is often criticized for not delivering what is required for business, needs to keep pace with changing requirement of business. Present day business has globalized in many aspects, its scope, practices and operations have widened to make it operational from the country of origin to countries of operations. As the scope of business is expanding worldwide, the employees of organizations also come from many countries, and the business decision making is becoming more complex as it applies to employees of different cultures. The cultural aspects of business come as the context for all business decision making. It is essential for business managers to appreciate the importance of different cultures.
Present day business education does not give adequate emphasis to the education of cultural and its impact on business decision making, nor does it help business students to develop skills for cultural sensitivity. In-depth business knowledge, managerial competency, ability to cope with uncertainties and conflicts, willingness and ability to embrace and integrate multiple perspectives, communication effectiveness, competence in developing and maintaining good interpersonal relations, willingness and commitment to succeed, ability to motivate and develop people with potential, ability and willingness to learn from experience, and competence in playing the role of a change agent are the competencies required for sustaining in multi-culture environment. A successful sustenance in cross-cultural business settings, there is a need for persons with the strong knowledge, skills, and perspectives matching with the working styles of context and will be –

  • Able to foster relationships that create respect for all,
  • Able to employ cultural sensitivity and diplomacy,
  • Able to solve cultural problems synergistically,
  • Able to balance conflicting demands of global integration and local responsiveness,
  • Able to manage and/or work with people from diverse racial and ethical backgrounds,
  • Able to maintain flexibility in strategy and tactics,
  • Able to create and sustain business teams in a global setting, and the like.

This presents business education with the challenge of accommodating diverse groups of multicultural learners and preparing them for stated dynamic settings. The majority of business students need practical abilities and skills that prepare them for future careers because the increasing globalization and the interconnectedness of multinational work environment have intensified the demand for graduates capable of operating in culturally diverse context.

The subject ‘Cross-Cultural Business Education’ presents a set of knowledge, skills and individual abilities in order to work successfully with people from different cultural backgrounds at domestically or internationally. The subject deals with dynamics that amplify knowledge, ideas, and connect different issues of teaching and learning business and management in cross-cultural
environment. It provides an idea about skill development, existence in the business world globally, achieving competency, practical disposition of knowledge, and creativity. This book facilitates business and management educators’ teaching practices and dispositions that foster learning in global exposure. It will be a pleasant experience to discuss facts related to tools of developing cross-cultural skills in management professionals. The way to improving these skills is to fill the gap between practical implication and theoretical consideration; the focus should be on
learning procedure so that individual related to business study will get more chances of enhancing subject knowledge and its practical implications in achieving the goals of the business world. The book tries to consider all the above aspects of business study and find the mode to elevate teaching and learning practices and research.

Poison in the Watercooler: Exploring the Toxicity of Lateral and Micro-aggression in Multiple Contexts and Disciplines [working title]

The shooting of Black citizens in the United States and recent European terrorist attacks have brought the fear of outward violence to the forefront. These atrocities are horrific and demanding of global attention, as well as domestic and international pressures to address systemic inequities and quell intimidation. Such overt acts of violence can overshadow and perhaps even trivialize the daily violence and aggression that many experience within the workforce and in their communities. This oversight may be embedded in the cyclical nature of micro-aggression and lateral violence (sometimes referred to as horizontal violence) which enables such acts to go unnoticed and simply accepted as “part of the job” (Ceravolo, Schwartz, Foltz-Ramos & Castner, 2012).

You are invited to submit a contribution to our edited book that explores the multiple ways in which prevailing ideologies of micro-aggression (Sue, et al. 2007), lateral aggression/violence (Stanley, Martin, Michel, Welton, & Nemeth, 2007) and incivility (Andersson & Pearson, 1999) permeate and serve to dismantle professional practices, thwarting leadership and productivity and advancement in numerous fields, such as,
but not limited to:

  • teaching
  • nursing
  • business
  • law
  • engineering
  • other professions

This edited book seeks to makes linkages between the intra-professional aggressions displayed within disciplines and multiple professions. As Sue et al. explain, micro-aggressions are “brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative racial slights and insults toward people of colour” Sue et al. (2007, p. 273). We extend this definition to include gender, ability, sexual orientation, nationality, religious affiliations, and include collegial aggression (lateral aggression and incivility) in the forms of non-verbal innuendo, verbal affront, undermining activities, withholding information, sabotage, infighting, scapegoating, backstabbing, failure to respect privacy and broken confidence (Stanley et al. 2007). The term “lateral violence” is also taken up in the literature pertaining to Aboriginal communities and residential schools. Bombay (2014) explains,

residential schools have been suggested as the primary cause of a cluster of behaviours known as
lateral violence thought to be prevalent within Aboriginal communities. Lateral violence can occur
within oppressed societies and include bullying, gossiping, feuding, shaming, and blaming other
members of one’s own social group as well as having a lack of trust toward other group members. (p. 2)

The overall absence of critical interrogation of lateral and micro-aggression tends to give rise to an uncritical
acceptance of time-worn practices, traditions, approaches and concepts, ultimately limiting transformative
and communicative possibilities in our professions, institutions and communities. Within our call for chapters, we invite contributions that explore the following themes:

  • The role of silence in micro/lateral aggressions and incivility
  • Explorations of disruption
  • The positionality of democracy in interactions
  • De (colonizing) institutions
  • Resistance theory
  • Hierarchical layers and practices
  • Peace and conflict resolution

The editors are interested in a range of submissions and encourage proposals from a variety of practitioners and disciplines. Submissions might include arts-informed contributions; narratives and vignettes; research-based critical papers and/or theoretical stances.

Proposals:
Prospective contributors should submit a one-two page overview (750 - 1000 words) of their proposed chapter, including:

  • Title
  • Contact information including name(s), institutional affiliation(s); email and phone
  • a brief abstract
  • a description of the chapter’s central argument that includes how their chapter addresses the central theme of the book
  • 3-5 key words/phrases

Please submit using MS Word and save your file as .doc file for compatibility. Font: Times New Roman size 12 font, double-spaced. Please adhere to APA, 6th edition formatting standards. Contributors will be sent chapter format and guidelines upon acceptance. Full manuscripts will be sent out for
blind peer review.
