Volume 14, Special Issue: Disciplines and Disciplinarity

Critical Matrix: The Princeton Journal of Women, Gender and Culture, is
seeking original submissions for an issue dedicated to the problems and
potential of disciplines and disciplinarity in the humanities. Within
and between departments of study, it has become increasingly difficult
to specify respective objects of investigation, critical methodologies,
and most importantly, the intellectual stakes and precise nature of the
work being done. English, French, German, rhetoric, and architecture-to
name just a few-have begun to stand in as loose designators of cultural,
geopolitical, ethical, or theoretical orientations.
