CALL FOR PAPERS
Philament: An Online Journal of Postgraduate and Early Career Scholarship in Arts and Culture
Philament 22: Precarity
Philament, the peer-reviewed, open access, online journal of arts and culture based at the University of Sydney, invites submissions from postgraduate students and early career academics for our twenty-second issue, Precarity.
This year's conference seeks to establish a link between the act of writing and activism by focusing on the strategies writers use to bring attention to their social and political aims. Writing has been used to inform the public, criticize societal norms, and capture lived experiences. Writing has also been used to respond to rhetoric that justifies bigotry or reinforces socially constructed norms. As new questions arise about freedom, identity, religion, and related matters, many writers feel compelled not only to capture the social and political issues of their time, but also to use writing to change notions about the world we live in.
