Update: Barzakh's Upcoming Issue on Ecopoetics

Barzakh magazine

Barzakh is a biannual multi-genre journal with an internationalist stance. Emerging out of the English department at the University at Albany, SUNY, our focus is on innovative poetics, in keeping with a tradition of forward-looking department-based journals that spans from Don Byrd's co-editorship of Jed Rasula's Wch Way in the 1970s to The Little Magazine in the 1990s (our first issue features an interview with Rasula, and issues of both journals will be made available in our archive). We envisage the archive as a way to bring together our various departmental projects and initiatives, past and present, and to connect them to analogous or anomalous ventures elsewhere in the rhizomatic spirit of crossings that is Barzakh.

Interstitial Journal

In the modern era, interstitiality, or the space between one boundary and the next, has become an urgent area of investigation. Existing within and between entities, interstices challenge conventional understandings of boundedness, inviting us to rethink the space between objects and ideas as an erupting site of transformation. From this view, rigid divisions can no longer be taken for granted, whether political (as in the case of national borders) or scholarly (such as the emphasis on discrete academic disciplines).

CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS: THEATRE HISTORY ANTHOLOGY ROUNDTABLE

For the 2013 ATHE Conference in Orlando we hope to present a roundtable on what play anthologies people are using while teaching theatre history/dramatic literature survey courses. Many of us teach these survey courses, and we know that the wide range of possible anthologies to adopt can be overwhelming. For that reason we hope to spotlight as many anthologies as possible to generate conversation and provide information to our colleagues.

If you would be interested in participating in this year's Theatre History pedagogy roundtable, please contact me with the following information:
