Call For Papers:
Stirrings Still: The International Journal of Existential Literature seeks
submissions for the following two issues:

Spring/Summer 2005 (Open Topics), Deadline May 1, 2005

Fall 2005 (The Fiction of Chuck Palahniuk), Deadline: September 1, 2005.

For the Spring/Summer issue, we wish to further explore the relationship
and engagement between existential literature & philosophy and postmodern
literature & theory. Hence we encourage both new "post-existential"
approaches to existential literature and existential readings of
"non-existential" literature. In other words, feel free to submit
Foucauldian readings of Camus or Sartrean readings of Pynchon.

PARTIAL ANSWERS: JOURNAL OF LITERATURE AND THE HISTORY OF IDEAS,
winner of the CELJ "Best New Journal of 2004" award,
invites papers on the following subject:
Narrative as a Way of Thinking

In current usage the word =93narrative=94 means either a sequence of
events, where =93an event=94 is understood as a change from one state to
another, or as a representation of such a sequence in a visual or verbal
medium. In each of the two meanings, narrative is constructed: the
selection of events and their combination in a sequence is an act of
thought, whether expressive of a conceptual stance or developing and
adjusting one in the process.
