JNT: Journal of Narrative Theory, founded in 1971 as The Journal of Narrative Technique, is a refereed, international journal published three times a year by the Department of English at Eastern Michigan University. JNT continues to follow the high standards set during its first four decades of publication; the newly focused JNT showcases theoretically sophisticated essays that examine narrative in a host of critical, interdisciplinary, or cross-cultural contexts.
Reform—a term, activity, or idea dedicated to dissent from existing conditions—is also, history demonstrates, slippery in its ambivalence. As the setting for both Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle and Hull House’s historical founding, Chicago has long been associated with activism and reform in the Progressive Era. Yet violent conflicts like the Haymarket Affair and Chicago Race Riots of 1919 made manifest continuing racial and class-based divisions and attested to the limits of so-called progressive social reform in this time/place.

Call for Papers: Race and Yoga Journal 2.1 (2017)
Yoga can be a tool to promote social justice. Yet, it can also be used to perpetuate violence and oppression. This themed issue of Race and Yoga invites a critical examination of justice and violence in yoga communities. What is yoga justice? How is “justice” defined and by whom? How do we rethink narratives that promote justice through yoga? Conversely, what kinds of violence occur in yoga spaces? How are people responding and/or resisting forms of yoga violence?
