Although the tradition of thinking about the image in philosophy and aesthetics goes all the way back to Plato and Aristotle there have recently been numerous critical approaches that depart from this tradition and envision the image as neither a copy of a copy nor as an ideological formation. The Graduate Conference "The Violence of the Image" seeks to further these new insights into the nature of the image.

The present pleasure,
By revolution low'ring, thus become
The opposite of itself
- Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra

If, in the near future, all data, movies, etc., were to become instantly available, if the delay were to become minimal so that the very notion of "searching for" (a book, a film …) were to lose meaning, would this instant availability not suffocate desire?
- Žižek

For its 2012 issue, Criterion (an undergraduate and master's level student journal) anticipates reserving space for up to four essays exploring issues that relate to transnational American studies. To provoke thoughts on this topic, Dr. Jared Hickman of Johns Hopkins University has provided a prompt, "(Meta) Critiques of 'Transnational American Studies'." Authors should not attempt to address all of the issues raised by Dr. Hickman; rather, Criterion hopes this prompt will serve as a springboard for creative and well-focused essays on relevant issues and texts.

Criterion seeks original, well-researched, and intellectually rigorous essays written from diverse critical perspectives and about texts from any time period or literary tradition. We encourage upper-division undergraduates and first- and second-year masters students to submit. Submissions are peer-reviewed by a selection board at BYU, and final decisions are made by the journal's two Editors-in-Chief in consultation with a faculty advisor. Essays may be submitted on a year-round basis, but Criterion is currently soliciting submissions for its 2012 issue, scheduled for publication in April of 2012. The submission deadline for the 2012 issue is 20 January 2012. Essays received after this deadline will be considered for the 2013 issue.
