Have the humanities taken a geological turn? Recent work across multiple disciplines - including philosophy, literary studies, and anthropology, to name only a few - has sought to reframe the contemporary historical moment within the deep timescales of the planet. From this dizzying perspective, scholars seek to reconfigure the relation between materiality and time: narrating the longue duréeof modernization through Earth's deep time materials (coal, oil, gold, etc.), even as humankind’s Earth-transforming activities are written into the geological record of the Anthropocene.

The Iowa Journal of Cultural Studies, a peer-reviewed academic journal edited by graduate students at the University of Iowa and dedicated to publishing cultural studies scholarship from both established and emerging scholars, is currently soliciting submissions for an upcoming special issue: Transition/Transgress.
