DEADLINE EXTENDED: Issue 5 "Scum and Villainy"

Word Hoard interdisciplinary graduate journal

Word Hoard is soliciting articles, essays, interviews, short fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and other publishable works on the theme of "Scum and Villainy" for our fifth issue. (Please find our previous issues at http://ir.lib.uwo.ca/wordhoard). We believe both "scum" and "villainy" have social, ethical, and epistemological implications reaching far beyond literary and popular tropes, and thus far beyond the lush taxonomy of opportunistic or conniving archetypes (e.g., muggers, grifters, the debased; psychopaths, traitors, the corrupt). Characterizations of "scum" or "villainy" interest us far more than literary characters as "scum" or "villains."
