As always, papers on any aspect of Beat creativity are welcomed, but especially in relation to two central themes: music and science.

International Conference "War Reflections: Precedents and Consequences of WWII in Literature and the Arts"

Tuesday, December 1, 2015 - 6:56pm
School of Languages and Literatures. Complutense University of Madrid, Spain.

The International Conference "War Reflections: Precedents and Consequences of WWII in Literature and the Arts" sets out to study works of literature, cinema, music and the visual arts related to the Second World War and the consequences derived from it.

This interdisciplinary conference intends to be a meeting point for specialists in literature and different arts in order to foster debate around the artistic representations of WWII. Thus, we propose new approaches to a historical event that has had great impact not only on society, politics, and history, but also on literature and the arts.

Want to write for us?

We have a rolling submissions policy.

Lehigh Valley Vanguard was started to give a "voice to the voiceless."

This means subverting the neoliberal paradigm to make way for new modes of relating.

This also means when you send something in, you WILL hear back.

Writing we admire as a model:

Anything published by Semiotexte, Roxane Gay, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Noam Chomsky.
French political thought in general. Revolutionaries, renegades, critical thinkers.

Submissions in PROSE

From the rise of totalitarianism to the dwindling borders of the British Empire, global citizens were under constant scrutiny as governments, artists, and documentarians developed new ways of listening in.
