Lehigh Valley Vanguard, a web and print based journal, is seeking submissions for our call:

Inciting Revolutionary Change

Micah White, one of Occupy Wall Street's founding members, suggests via his 2016 book The End of Protest: A New Playbook for Revolution:

"Is protest broken? Disruptive tactics have failed to halt the rise of Donald Trump in the upcoming US presidential election. Movements ranging from Black Lives Matter to environmentalism are leaving activists frustrated. Meanwhile, recent years have witnessed the largest protests in human history. Yet these mass mobilizations no longer change society. Now activism is at a crossroads: innovation or irrelevance."

Visual design: the periodical page as a designed surface

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 15, 2017

The conference “Visual design: the periodical page as a designed surface”is concerned with the visual design of the Journal, taken to mean the whole spectrum of periodical print publications, including amongst others newspapers and magazines. Interest is thus focused on the periodical page (or double-page spread) as a visible printed surface on which words and images appear in a designed context. The premise is that the written and pictorial content of the periodical are not realized in abstraction (as disembodied and placeless), but remain tied to the materiality of the periodical, which provides for a two-dimensional and sequential arrangement of diverse visual elements.

International Conference on Religion, Literature & Culture

Literature, being a creative universal form of expression, addresses spiritual, emotional and social concerns of humanity. It is known that there are reciprocal relations between literature and religion, still the question of how these two disciplines interact with each other invites fresh thought. Looking at the past of English Literature, it is abundantly clear that critics even before Mathew Arnold have referred back to form and content of religious scriptures.
