15 September 2014--Text in Context: A Graduate Student Journal

full name / name of organization: 
Southern Connecticut State University
contact email: 
textincontext.southernct@gmail.com

Text in Context is a graduate student journal published electronically by graduate students in the English Department at Southern Connecticut State University. We seek submissions exploring the text itself and its function(s) and implications both internally and externally—literary analysis, poetry studies, critical theory, popular reception of a particular work, close readings, historical relevance, etc. Though the journal primarily deals with English studies, we welcome original papers from other disciplines, provided those papers focus on the text and/or its context—pedagogy and instructional design, localization of language in the brain, regional dialects and their origins, etc. We currently seek scholarly papers to include in the publication.

Pop Culture in Context

Volume 2, Issue 1 (Fall 2014/Winter 2015) will also feature a section of papers devoted to popular culture and its contexts. Papers submitted to “Pop Culture in Context” should explore the ways in which popular culture circulates within texts, replicates itself through texts, or creates and shapes its own contexts through texts. A “text” may be visual or cultural; it need not be strictly literary. Some potential questions papers may address include, but are not limited to:

• Is popular culture primarily subversive or conservative?
• In what ways do the concerns of popular novels, graphic novels, films, music, and television series intersect with those of more canonical literary works?
• How are issues of gender, race, class, and sexuality explored and represented in popular contexts?
• To what degree is an understanding of how popular culture functions becoming an intrinsic part of our studies of anthropology, economics, history, literature, political science, sociology, art, culture, etc.?

“The Text and Time: Past, Present, Future”: Selected Papers

Once again, our Fall/Winter issue will feature selected papers from Southern Connecticut State University’s Annual Graduate Conference. Volume 2, Issue 1 (Fall 2014/Winter 2015) will highlight selected papers from the April 26, 2014, conference, “The Text and Time: Past, Present, Future.”

Book Reviews

We are seeking book reviews of scholarly texts that have been published within the past two years (2012 to present). Reviews should be no more than 1,000 words and should conform to the MLA guidelines listed below.

Submission Guidelines

The submission deadline for our Fall 2014/Winter 2015 issue will be September 15, 2014.

Please send submissions electronically to textincontext.southernct@gmail.com as MS Word email attachments, indicating in the body of the email to which section you are submitting your paper. Our editorial board employs anonymous peer review in its selection process; thus, author name and contact information should appear in a separate file and not in the manuscript itself.

Submissions should be no longer than 2,500 words in length, set in 12pt, Palatino font, double-spaced, with 1” margins, and adhere to 2009 MLA style. All submissions must be the author’s original thought and therefore must include a complete works cited page also in MLA format. Please also include a short abstract and third-person author bio, no more than 150 words each.

If figures, illustrations, and/or video clips accompany the submission, please present them in separate files. The author has sole responsibility for any copyright permissions and fees.

Requirements

Authors must be currently enrolled in a program of graduate study at an accredited university. Submissions must be previously unpublished, but the author retains future publishing rights.
