Cha: An Asian Literary Journal (http://www.asiancha.com) is now accepting submissions for "Writing Japan," an edition of the journal devoted to work from and/or about Japan.

Our special issue "Writing Japan" encompasses writing from and/or about Japan, broadly imagined.

We are looking for idiosyncratic and intelligent work that explores the various meanings of "Writing Japan."

What incites the resurgence of an old -ism under the banner of the “new”: new criticism, new historicism, new formalism, new materialism, new secularism, new Americanism? The recurrence of the “new” is itself an academic tradition of some standing, yet the relationship between the –ism and its newness is not just the announcement of a break, but a negotiation between return and departure, opposition and progression. Taken as a whole, critical tendencies and preoccupations begin to look less like radical ruptures and more like reinvestments in persistent questions.

“Robert Penn Warren & Time”

Deadline: 2/15/2017

Most of Warren’s oeuvre concerns itself with Time in one way or another, whether through personal memory, metaphysical speculation, “official” history, cultural traditions, or prognostication.  While the historical and socio-historical elements of Warren’s work remain of permanent interest, we particularly encourage studies that explore Time in its relation to Warren’s metaphysical quest, or “yearning,” and/or in its relation to his aesthetics. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

In June 1914, Wyndham Lewis published the first of the two-issue BLAST, a literary and arts magazine dedicated to a new artistic and cultural movement dubbed Vorticism.  Though short lived, the journal tried to reinvigorate the avant-garde in England and is largely recognized as a seminal work in pre-WWI modernism.
