CFP: thresholds no. 1, Extraneous

Thursday, April 7, 2016 - 5:31am
full name / name of organization: 
Fran McDonald, Whitney Trettien

thresholds is a new digital journal co-edited by Whitney Trettien (UNC) and Fran McDonald (U. Louisville). The journal's platform bears witness to the dynamic processes that constitute reading and writing by way of a split-screen architecture. On the left side of the screen, we publish short essays (essayer – trial, attempt, test). The right side of the screen is populated by the various text fragments, images, audio, and video clips that inspired the author and propelled the corresponding work. Unlike a footnote or endnote, these fragments are not explicitly harnessed to the essay's main body; they do not rustle the reader toward a specific interpretative conclusion.

Wednesday, April 6, 2016 - 10:09am
full name / name of organization: 
The Quiet Corner Interdisciplinary Journal, University of Connecticut

We are pleased to announce a call for papers to be featured in the second issue of The Quiet Corner Interdisciplinary Journal, housed in the University of Connecticut's Department of Literatures, Cultures, and Languages. For this issue, titled "What to Make of 'Nation?", we welcome article submissions that treat the often-problematic complexities of nation-centric constructs such as nationhood, nationalism, and national identity, as well as counter-constructs rooted in discourses of globality, postcolonialism, universality, human rights, and other bustling spheres of critical inquiry. This issue aims to complicate the very idea of nation by interrogating the limitations of its political, geographical, and socio-cultural dimensions.
