CFP: Philament Journal: Ornament (grad) (6/11/04; journal issue)

Friday, April 23, 2004 - 3:09am

PHILAMENT invites contributors for its fifth edition. This upcoming issue is to
circulate around ideas of Ornament.

Deadline: Friday 11th June 2004.

Ornament. So, for example, you might like to write an article about puritanical
insignia in early American literature, or about the physical and psychological
scarring of teenagers in young adult literature. Equally, you could submit a
paper on the translational slippage between scripts (transcript, manuscript,
etc) on the road to publication. Any way you look at it, you are writing about
ornament. And you ornament as you do so. Maybe you could write about that.

Go on then, adorn us.

Ornamental ideas, suggestions, texts or otherwise:

Skandalon: a graduate journal of theory

Call for Papers

Skandalon is a refereed graduate e-journal edited and published by the students of the Centre for the Study of Theory & Criticism, University of Western Ontario.

Within the confines of its biblical and ecclesiastical heritage, the word skandalon signifies a seductive enticement or occasion that incites behaviour that leads one to turn away from God and enter a movement towards ruin. In this very movement of reversal, however, there resides a going astray that points towards the thinking or theorizing of, or on, the scandalized.
