Stet Issue 3: Dis/orientation

updated: 
Thursday, December 13, 2012 - 11:15am
King's College London

Stet, the online postgraduate journal of the English Department at King's College London, is now accepting submissions from current postgraduate students for its third peer-reviewed publication. In this issue, we will present articles from an international pool of students on the concept of dis/orientation. We seek to explore the question of how we are and have been located or dislocated in space, time, and history. Which parts of our personal, social, cultural, geographical, genetic, or technological landscape orient us? What incidents construct our conception of ourselves and our environments? We wish to explore the concept of dis/orientation in literary and cultural studies from an interdisciplinary, cross-period perspective.

Thursday, December 13, 2012 - 8:25am
Guest Editor: James Corby; Journal for Cultural Research

In the context of any attempt to rethink the modalities, possibilities, conditions and limitations of critical thought, the otherwise sober and restrained notion of 'critical distance', with all its implications of unhurried reason and mastery, offers a compelling perspective on what is at stake.

Cloud Computing implements the next generation Internet computing by realizing cost-oriented and on-demand provisioning of resources for arbitrary customers. IT resources, platforms and services are made available at virtually unlimited scale for everybody, everywhere, and anytime. Since Cloud environments help to gain access to specialized software, dedicated computational resources, or new storage facilities, they open new possibilities for any kind of scientific work that relies on computational or data analysis.

For nearly two decades now we have lived through the economic, social, and political consequences of the North American Free Trade Agreement. During that time, American Studies scholars have devoted ample space to exposing the material reality of the NAFTA era, but, understandably, less attention has been paid to its textual consequences. How have fiction writers and poets responded to the rhetoric of "free trade"? To what extent have they internalized or resisted NAFTA's neoliberal worldview, and how is this reflected in the formal elements of their writing?
