Academic archives and special collections are treasure troves for student engagement. These repositories contain tactile examples of institutional history that are instrumental for student research and inspirational for student creativity. Increasingly teaching faculty are collaborating with archivists and librarians in the promotion and use of these unique treasures. From these materials, students draw inspiration, often transforming the notion of what constitutes a book. Archives in turn may curate these works, documenting student research and properties for future generations. We invite presentations of work derived from or inspired by archival holdings and present strategies for encouraging similar artistic expression and curation.

Oxford Literary Review

This issue of the OLR (39:2) invites contributors to forge unexpected encounters between deconstruction, matter, and new and older materialisms—be they mechanical, historical, dialectical, speculative, textual, neurological, corporeal, cosmo-physical, or indeed "of the encounter." Guiding questions might include: how does deconstruction address the philosophy and politics of matter, materiality, and materialism? How might deconstruction articulate alternative accounts of materialism? In what ways might an attention to matter be itself already deconstructive, and what would be at stake in such a claim? How might attention to matter and materialism animate the politics of deconstruction?
