Ideas of Place and Particularity - Journal Issue, May 2012

updated: 
Saturday, July 2, 2011 - 3:51pm
Modern Horizons Journal

For the May 2012 issue of Modern Horizons we invite essays that explore the various philosophical, literary, artistic, and political expressions of place and particularity which have led to and are part of our time.

Place and particularity may be emphasised practically or addressed theoretically; in both cases, the importance of our own time, space, and experiences, and how these relate to what is different or other, is evident. Whether considering buying and growing food locally, participating in community activism, or working to sustain the diminishing realities of neighbourhoods, the urge to encourage and realise place and particularity is prevalent in our societies.

Ben Parsons/ University of Leicester

Peer English (ISSN 1746-5621) is a refereed academic journal, now in its seventh year, published by members of the School of English at the University of Leicester. Our remit is to publish leading research from those academics at the very beginnings of their careers (graduate study, post-doctoral research) through to those already established within the community. This approach also includes the notion of 'work in progress' and we welcome contributions of high academic standards from those currently involved in active research, be they doctoral candidates or Heads of Departments.
