KULA: Knowledge Creation, Dissemination, and Preservation Studies is a new peer-reviewed, open-access electronic journal based at the University of Victoria Libraries (in Victoria, BC, Canada). KULA, named for the Sanskrit word for “community” and as a reference to the “Kula Plate,” the Pacific Rim Terrane from which Vancouver Island was formed, welcomes multi-disciplinary scholarship on the study of human knowledge processes throughout history. We are interested in both humanistic and technological perspectives on how we have and continue to create, cultivate, disseminate, and preserve knowledge.

Nihilism… Utopianism (June 2017)
For the June 2017 issue of Modern Horizons we welcome submissions of essays on the theme of ‘Nihilism … Utopianism’.
On either side of life and underlying the meaningful forms we inhabit and live as individuals is – what? –something? –nothing? This basic and enduring question may be thickened for us through the temporal and metaphysical inquiries of nihilism and utopianism—intellectual and spiritual stances that critically engage with the ways we affirm or gainsay our familiar yet different worlds. Through a variety of papers and perspectives at our conference, we aim to address different positive and negative approaches to these two great themes.
