CFP: Existential Literature/Chuck Palahniuk/Louis-Ferdinand Celine (ongoing; journal issues)

Monday, February 14, 2005 - 4:51pm

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.
