Center: A Journal of the Literary Arts invites submissions for a symposium on the importance of place in creative nonfiction, to appear in its next issue (spring 2010).
We encourage you to consider place from a variety of perspectives. What is its role in the essay? in memoir? in literary journalism? How do concerns about conveying a sense of place affect your own work? in what ways do you see issues of place animating the work of others? How is place specific or general? Must place be physical or is it temporal as well? What role does craft play in the development of place?

Fat Studies is becoming an interdisciplinary, cross-disciplinary field of study that confronts and critiques cultural constraints against notions of "fatness" and "the fat body"; explores fat bodies as they live in, are shaped by, and remake the world; and creates paradigms for the development of fat acceptance or celebration within mass culture. Fat Studies uses body size as the starting part for a wide-ranging theorization and explication of how societies and cultures, past and present, have conceptualized all bodies and the political/cultural meanings ascribed to every body.
