Philosophy, being untimely, is inexorably embedded in time, dedicated to the future.

The International Conference "War Reflections: Precedents and Consequences of WWII in Literature and the Arts" sets out to study works of literature, cinema, music and the visual arts related to the Second World War and the consequences derived from it.

This interdisciplinary conference intends to be a meeting point for specialists in literature and different arts in order to foster debate around the artistic representations of WWII. Thus, we propose new approaches to a historical event that has had great impact not only on society, politics, and history, but also on literature and the arts.

Want to write for us?

We have a rolling submissions policy.

Lehigh Valley Vanguard was started to give a "voice to the voiceless."

This means subverting the neoliberal paradigm to make way for new modes of relating.

This also means when you send something in, you WILL hear back.

Writing we admire as a model:

Anything published by Semiotexte, Roxane Gay, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Noam Chomsky.
French political thought in general. Revolutionaries, renegades, critical thinkers.

The 18th annual conference of the Space Between Society focuses on the concept of surveillance—watching, listening, recording—as it relates to literature, art, history, music, theatre, media, and spatial or material culture between 1914 and 1945. From the rise of totalitarianism to the dwindling borders of the British Empire, global citizens were under constant scrutiny as governments, artists, and documentarians developed new ways of listening in.

Scenes of Interracial Intimacies: Proposed Panel for BWWC 2016 (deadline: December 20, 2015)

Vladimir Nabokov famously expressed that the theme of "a Negro-white intermarriage which is a complete and glorious success resulting in lots of children and grandchildren" has been "utterly taboo" in Western literature. This was a taboo that British women writers of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries regularly explored, and even challenged. From the explosively doomed union between Rochester and Bertha Mason in Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre, to the fetishistic gaze within which the female narrator holds the protagonist of Aphra Behn's Oronooko, to the forced erasure of the happy marriage between Juba and Lucy from Maria Edgeworth's Belinda, British women's fiction represents a range of interests in and encounters with interracial relationships.

"Do you see the slightest evidence anywhere in the universe that creation came to an end with the birth of man? Do you see the slightest evidence anywhere out there that man was the climax toward which creation had been straining from the beginning? ...Very far from it." ― Daniel Quinn, Ishmael

What is meant when we consider something to be in process?
