Call for creative submissions: disClosure 13 (Pangaea)
 
The Committee on Social Theory, a consortium of University of Kentucky
scholars dedicated to the furtherance of multi- and trans-disciplinary
research, invites creative and experimental submissions for inclusion in
the upcoming issue of disClosure: A Journal in Social Theory. The theme
of the upcoming issue focuses on how theories of globalization address the
arrival of new forms of transcontinental connections through the
development of technologies, social, cultural, and political practices,
capital, global human and environmental epidemics, etc. To this end, we
invite writers and artists with similar interests to submit creative
and/or experimental pieces; submissions may be in the form of poetry,
short story, narrative, a combination thereof, or other appropriate
formats. We include a "literary/experimental" section because we are not
only interested in furthering multi-disciplinary scholarship, but also
encouraging the exploration of theory through different mediums and
genres. Thus, the cfp is soliciting materials for an academic journal.
 
Persons interested in submitting should adhere to the following guidelines:
 
Papers: Include three copies of text submissions, double spaced and no more
than 10,000 words. Manuscripts, notes, and bibliographies should follow MLA
format. Art and other graphic material may be submitted as transparencies,
prints, or electronic files (with hard copy provided for proofing). Please
do not submit material that has been half-toned for publication (e.g.,
pictures in books or catalogues).

Art/Poetry: Artists should submit digital or camera-ready material.
Electronic submissions should be accompanied by a hard copy.

Art cannot be returned, so do not send originals. Include one copy of
poetry submissions.
N.B. Authors are responsible for securing copyright and fair-use notices
and must submit them prior to disClosure publication. All material accepted
by disClosure for publication becomes property of the journal. disClosure
is not responsible for loss or damage resulting from submission.

from authors and artists (academically affiliated or not) concerned with
social theory. Editorial decisions are based solely on quality and
originality.

Anzaldua, Paul Taylor, Cindi Katz, bell hooks and others. Art and poetry
submissions from international and more local contributors have also
