Call for Publication
Collection: Non-Traditional Approaches to Teaching English Studies

This collection addresses a disjunction between the content taught in
English Studies and the theory and practice used to teach this content.
While the canon wars will always rage, non-traditional content based on
race, gender, imperialism, and class has become an expected aspect of the
literatures read and discussed in English classrooms; however while
questions of gender, class, and race have become central aspects of what we
teach, by-and-large how we teach in the English classroom remains firmly
rooted in traditional Western rhetorics and hermeneutics.

ReBlurring the Boundaries: New Developments in Intermedia

Over the past decades, the subject of intermedia has leant itself to
countless studies. Still, the ongoing and accelerating development and
global convergence of technologies call for perpetual re-assessment. Our
workshop invites contributors to join in an attempt to trace new
developments in a realm of fluctuating and competing discourses. The issues
discussed can be exemplified as follows: What is so techno about techno, and
how can Jazz be noir? What are the fictional and narrative strategies of
computer games? What is so Hindu about the virtual avatar? In how far is
Bret Easton Ellis cinematic, and how punk is Kathy Acker?

CRATE, a new literary journal out of the University of California, Riverside,
seeks critical prose that explores areas of literary hybridity and addresses
nuanced aspects of writings that have challenged the boundaries of genre for

Submissions may be a paper of fresh critical inquiry on contemporary writing
or a tightly focused review of contemporary writing published within the past
five years. CRATE has an interest in the writing of Southern California,
particularly of the Inland Empire/Riverside County area. Still we welcome all
works from diverse writers and geographies that address out theme, controlled
burn, and/or our focus on hybridity.

Shahin Ismail-Beigi

_The Ugly Couch_ is seeking submissions for its inaugural and subsequent
issues. This journal intends to link the interdisciplinary, dialogue-based,
academic journal to the do-it-yourself, community-based, unpretentious zine.
Instead of providing special issues that may manipulate and prematurely edit
the potential contributions, the journal allows for the submissions to
dictate the makeup and foci of each issue. That said, dialogue about certain
subjects may occur and percolate several issues. Instead of providing
another space for rant-heavy, not thoroughly researched/ non-dialectic
articles one finds in several zines, the editor seeks well articulated
