CFP: Margaret Garner: The Libretto. Critical articles are sought for an edited volume on Toni Morrison's libretto,_Margaret Garner_. Because the volume will serve as a historical commemoration as well as a critical study, scholars who experienced the libretto as a performed text by attending the opera at its premiere in Detroit, Cincinnati, and/or Philadelphia with the original cast members, stage designer, and director are especially encouraged to contribute to this project. Interested contributors should submit an abstract of 200 words before January 15, 2011. Essays are due August 1, 2011 and must be more than 6,000 words and fewer than 9,000 words.

full name / name of organization: 
Rattle Journal (UK)

Call for short critical and theoretical work on Art, Writing and Visual Cultures.

Rattle is a journal of art, writing, and thought. It offers a speculative space for the text-image relationship to develop, as well as representing those moments of thought and work not easily recuperated into the mainstreams of practice.

Work may include, but is by no means limited to, theoretical and critical writing, page based artworks, reviews, fictions and poetry. We encourage the submission of interesting and unusual work regardless of its form or subject.

Proposals are welcomed but publication cannot be guaranteed before receiving finished work.

Voices are central to the treatment of trauma, and it is this centrality that makes the connection between trauma and literature so rich. The narrative voice provides the victim a way to process and order the experience, and it is through this voice that those who hear it come into community with that person. Through this community, the number of those who bear witness multiplies, as does the number of those who are primary and secondary survivors.
