DEADLINE: January 15th, 2013

For our inaugural issue, we are seeking submissions of graduate student work from around the world on the topic of mimesis versus invention.

[UPDATE] PURITY: A Call For Papers

updated: 
Thursday, December 27, 2012 - 11:18am
Excursions Journal

"Purity is the power to contemplate defilement." – Simone Weil

"Purity is a negative state and therefore contrary to nature." – William Faulkner

"Throughout human history, the apostles of purity, those who have claimed to possess a total explanation, have wrought havoc among mere mixed-up human beings." – Salman Rushdie

PURITY is a division, a concept, a value-system, a fallacy, an ideal state, a doctrine, a transfer. It marks the territories of sex and contamination, mathematics and martyrdom, economy and resistance, music and annihilation.
