Rosette Maleficarum
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, November 5, 2017

The Rosette Maleficarum prides itself on literary works that promote the darker aspects of life. From a dilapidated doll that watched her owner abandon her, to the ghost of a soldier  who wanders the battlefield, the journal records to struggles of humanity. Even so, I’m open to little innocent lights, ones that bring back the nostalgia of our youth. But who knows? Just send a piece in, and perhaps it could be published here.

OK Computer, twenty years on: Radiohead’s musical, cultural, and political legacies

During Office Hours
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, November 30, 2017

During Office Hours, a new website for teachers in higher education, is looking for usable teaching related content. We want to collect, share, and archive all the ideas, information, best practices, and advice that you’ve accumulated during your teaching careers. Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or a new teacher, a tenured professor or an adjunct or a TA, we hope that everyone can contribute to and benefit from this site.

The easiest way to describe what we’re looking for is to think about what we do during office hours: prepare, plan, reflect, and problem solve (to name a few). We want what you already have: your tried and tested methods, tips, techniques, handouts, assignments, advice, and ideas.
