Bridges and Borders: Exploring the Confluence of Languages, Disciplines, and Cultures

full name / name of organization: 
Andrew Keese / Journal of South Texas English Studies

The Journal of South Texas English Studies is now welcoming submissions until March 5 for its second issue, themed "Bridges and Borders: Exploring the Confluence of Languages, Disciplines, and Cultures."

Bridges are frequently built up and torn down, and borders often change. The boundaries between people, places and things blur and break. This happens with governments, but it is equally true in literature and rhetoric. Authors frequently challenge our notions of what is acceptable, they point out our close-mindedness, and they show us new paths.

Pop Past – It's 'Past', But It's Never 'Over'

There was a time, late 19th/early 20th century or thereabouts, when people, many of them the fashionable French, ventured out to public establishments to imbibe in, among other things, an herbal/licorice/mind-bending brew distilled from the essence of the inelegantly named 'wormwood' plant, which resulted in the poetically named 'absinthe' cocktail. Deep within absinthe's perplexing, complex concoction the "Green Fairy" resided. She is named the "Green Fairy" due to her glowing color and the muse-like inspirations she cast upon some suggestible minds (many quite famous minds, at that). Indeed, absinthe was a fashionable drink among the Parisian artist and intellectual class.
