Kudzu Review, literature for an invasive species, the bi-annual Southern journal for the study of literature and the environment, is looking for submissions for its premier. Here at the Kudzu Review we look for savvy, sharp, well polished literature that captures life in a post-natural world. We publish work that is outstanding, and motivated by concerns with man's place in the world. This isn't your grandmother's moldy copy of Shelly poems; show us the "new-nature" with your place, post-colonial, post-gender, and activist writing. Show us new takes on what is "natural." Turn your ecocritical eye on any aspect of modern life, see what comes out. Avoid overt or preachy messages. Enter contests for poetry, fiction, essays, and recipes.

"Wonderful Things" - Surrealism and Egypt
In November 1922 Howard Carter opened the tomb of Tutankhamun in Egypt's Valley of the Kings, the greatest archaeological discovery of the 20th century. This discovery triggered an enormous Egyptomanic craze in Europe and America, evident across architecture, the arts and popular culture. This special issue will mark the 90th anniversary of the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb by evaluating Egypt's significant and diverse impact on surrealism.

This panel will examine eighteenth-century British fiction and the relationship between violence, obscenity and humor. Novelists' use of the obscene joke is a tempered way to suppress the blurring lines of distinction between classes and to maintain hierarchy, a direct response to the changes in society and to the increasing sensitivity to vulgar subjects in polite society. This panel is interested in discovering how authors mobilize social anxiety through violence, obscenity and humor.
