Impact, the journal of interdisciplinary studies, is currently soliciting pieces for a special issue focusing on the recent events in Charlottesville and related topics, tentatively slated to appear early next summer.

Impact publishes both scholarly and non-scholarly essays of varying lengths, as well as work in other modes and media; for this issue we are seeking pieces that engage these topics from a variety of disciplinary perspectives (history, literature, theology, philosophy, cultural studies, to name a few). Particularly welcome are essays, or potentially other kinds of work, growing from pedagogy: pieces, that is, reflecting the experience of professors/teachers engaging with Charlottesville in the classroom. Queries are welcome; submissions should be received by March 1, 2018.

Submissions, and queries about this particular issue, should be sent to worth@bu.edu; general questions about Impact should be directed to citl@bu.edu.
