CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Present Tense

updated: 
Tuesday, March 30, 2010 - 5:04pm
Alexandra Hidalgo, Purdue University

Present Tense is currently seeking submissions for its inaugural issue. We are a peer-reviewed, blind-refereed, online journal dedicated to exploring contemporary social, cultural, political and economic issues through a rhetorical lens.

Seeking to address current or presently unfolding issues, we publish short articles of no more than 2,000 words, the length of a conference paper. We also encourage conference-length multimedia submissions such as short documentaries, flash videos, interviews and podcasts, as well as reviews that are thematically related to the goals of the journal.

Here is a suggestive, though by no means exhaustive, list of topics that potential submissions might address:

S(t)imulated Realities: The Hypperreal in Popular Culture

updated: 
Tuesday, March 30, 2010 - 3:15pm
Robin DeRosa/Plymouth State University

This collection will look at pop cultural simulations of the real. Topics to be covered could include reality television; living history museums or other tourist sites; simulated violence in entertainment, such as film and professional wrestling; Disneyland; planned residential communities; SecondLife, online gaming, and avatars; online cultural communities; metafiction; and literary hoaxes. Is the "real" strengthened and reinscribed by the copy that acknowledges it, or is the "real" confounded by simulations which ultimately supplant reality with a kind of hyperreality?
