CFP: [General] Journal of Literacy and Technology

Thursday, September 18, 2008 - 6:23pm,

The Journal of Literacy and Technology calls for submissions as the

throughout the calendar year rather than set dates. The editors believe
that publishing articles as they come in better reflects The Journal of

academic journal.
Submit article manuscripts for consideration at any time. The Journal of
Literacy and Technology currently publishes research articles and book
reviews two or three times a year.

CFP: [General] Papers needed for Literary Journal

Thursday, September 18, 2008 - 5:43pm,

This is a call for submissions that you wish to be considered for
publication in The St. John's University (Queens, NY) bi-annual literary
journal, The Humanities Review. The journal has published several notable
academics in their respective fields over the last few years such as:
Gayatri Spivak, Amy King and Peter McLaren.

The working themes of this edition are Modern Social Custom Flourishes,
Exemplary Figures, Corruption of Dialect and Post-9/11 Noir. However, we
will not discriminate if your paper fails to converse with these ideas.
Whatever you have available will certainly suffice.
