CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

The XAVIER REVIEW (established in its present form in 1980) is
undergoing a process of self-reflection and refurbishment in keeping
with the spirit of the new millennium. Our sense is that, in addition
to publishing high quality works on any topic, we still have interests
in creative and critical works on Southern literature, literature and
religion, Latin-Caribbean literature, and African-American literature,
areas which reflect some of the Xavier library's collections.

Priya Vigneswaran

Antithesis is an interdisciplinary journal of critical theory and creative
cultural production. It is Australia's longest standing postgraduate
journal and is published by University of Melbourne, the leading research
institution

Volume 11, 'SEX 2000' seeks to explore the various terrains through which
'sex' might remain or become both intelligible and possible. This project
can be realised through a consideration of libidinal investments across
visual and discursive practices, corporeal enactments and virtual
identifications. Accordingly, these provisional locations will imply a
constitutive and reflexive negativity or absence, in the form of
banalities, repulsions and failures.
