Bridges and Borders: Exploring the Confluence of Languages, Disciplines, and Cultures

updated: 
Tuesday, February 2, 2010 - 2:14pm
full name / name of organization: 
Journal of South Texas English Studies

The Journal of South Texas English Studies is now welcoming submissions until March 5 for its second issue, themed "Bridges and Borders: Exploring the Confluence of Languages, Disciplines, and Cultures."

Bridges are frequently built up and torn down, and borders often change. The boundaries between people, places and things blur and break. This happens with governments, but it is equally true in literature and rhetoric. Authors frequently challenge our notions of what is acceptable, they point out our close-mindedness, and they show us new paths.
