dialogues that take place between disciplines and which challenge
conventional understandings of reading and scholarship in academia.

The editors will consider all papers that speak to our commitment to
publishing the very best of international scholars working on a variety of
disciplines, including philosophy, literature, history, and visual
culture. Papers treating questions surrounding epistemologies of
otherness, including alternate knowledge forms, are particularly
encouraged.
