VERB, an interdisciplinary online journal with a newsprint supplement,
is seeking submissions for its Fall 2006 issue. The topic for this
issue is "contagion," broadly defined, which includes (but is not
limited to):

* The spread of ideas, practices, or perceptions, (or theorizing the same).
* Politics, parasites, or the rapidly-breeding nuisance insects of New
England.
* The communication of ideas, artistic or otherwise.
* Blogs (because no online journal can refuse to discuss blogs).
* Any other item with even a tenuous denotative or connotative
similarity to any definition of "contagion," current or otherwise.
