Essays not exceeding 5,000 words are invited for an anthology exploring Non-Western Christianity and Literature.

Please send abstracts, which should not exceed 250 words, in the first instance. E-mail attachments preferred. Please use the e-mail address listed below. And feel free to use this address for any and all initial inquiries.

The deadline for receipt of abstracts is November 14, 2005. Completed essays are due April 30, 2006.

CFP: Waste (11/15/05; journal issue)

Thursday, November 3, 2005 - 6:42pm

VERB, a peer-reviewed online and print journal of the humanities, is
soliciting articles, fiction, and poetry for our second of four issues
on "waste," broadly defined. Submissions can apply, describe, analyze,
expand, or compare cultural, textual, or theoretical understandings of
waste in any form: garbage, excess, poorly-spent time, poorly exercised
potential, and so forth. Submissions can also examine how various media
-- literature, film, or the plastic arts -- interpret waste. And we're
open to other ideas, too.
