Italo Calvino once asked, "who are we, who is each one of us, if not a combinatoria of experiences, information, books we have read, things imagined?" And while the question maintains its relevance, isn't it about time we turn our attention away from the individual, the "we," and ask this question of the texts produced and the environments in which they are produced?
Within the next few years, Williams Carlos Williams's early works such as Al Que Quiere (1917), Kora in Hell: Improvisations (1920), Sour Grapes (1921), Spring and All (1923), and In the American Grain (1925) will reach their centennial anniversary. And since these milestones also coincide with a resurgent scholarly interest in lyric studies and modernist literature in general, the William Carlos Williams Review is soliciting articles for a special, double issue on "The New Williams" (forthcoming in 2015). The coeditors of the project are especially looking for innovative research that brings contemporary critical practices and methodologies to bear on Williams's life and work.
This call for papers invites innovative submissions from postgraduates or early career academics on topics relating to the subject of 'Crime/Concealment' for the next edition of HARTS & Minds, an online journal for postgraduates, early career researchers (including EC independent researchers) of the Humanities and Arts, which is due to be published in early 2015.
Our previous editions, 'Against the Grain', 'Space and Place' 'Death and Decay' and 'Sound and Silence' can be found at www.harts-minds.co.uk and updates and review suggestions at facebook.com/hartsandminds.

- Nous approchons ici, dis-je au maître, d'une grosse objection que j'avais à vous faire…. L'obscurité !
- C'est, en effet, également dangereux, me répond-il, soit que l'obscurité vienne de l'insuffisance du lecteur, ou celle du poète… mais c'est tricher que l'éluder ce travail.
