INQUIS is an online, biannual, blind peer-reviewed journal which offers graduate students in the field of literatures in English a chance to make their research known internationally. Considering that literary studies as a field of scholarly study has undergone tremendous changes and challenges, both the practice and theory of literary studies certainly need a thorough scrutiny under the light of new perspectives, new approaches, new interpretations as well as new insights. By including the works of graduate researchers, the journal primarily aims to promote dialogue and to serve as an international forum for young academics and researchers where they can share their ideas and contribute globally to the discussions on studies of literatures in English.

Eborakon Call for Submissions - Deadline 25 Feb

updated: 
Thursday, February 18, 2016 - 4:32am
full name / name of organization: 
Eborakon poetry journal

Eborakon is an annual poetry magazine based at the University of York, publishing new writers alongside established poets. The name is derived from the Brythonic for York, meaning "place of the yews". We value writing that is rooted, both in the resonances of language as it has been used over the course of history, and in the evocation of place. We are nourished by the writers and critics who have preceded us, at the same time branching out to explore the future. Like the yew, for us poetry is mysterious and earthly, real matter that is potentially dangerous to savour.

As for measure and other technical apparatus, that's just common sense: if you're going to buy a pair of pants you want them to be tight enough so everyone will want to go to bed with you. There's nothing metaphysical about it. Frank O'Hara, 'Personism', 1959

What role do religion and secularization play in the rise of the novel? This seminar takes up the insights of postsecular studies to help scholars explore this question in new ways: in Misty Anderson's words, reading religion into rather than out of history, and as Danièle Hervieu-Léger puts it, attending to signs of religion's profound and often surprising transformations in modernity.
