Science: How do developments in science and / or technology
(communications, medicine, transportation, physics, etc)
interact with literature and/or how have human relationships
to technological advancements changed through time? While
articles could consider works of science fiction, we're also
seeking examinations of how technological developments are
portrayed in literature (broadly conceived- fiction,
non-fiction, or poetry across time periods and national
boundaries), how literature and writing is in turn affected by
these developments and/or how it attempts to justify,
celebrate, rationalize, or control them. We are actively
seeking work from all disciplines, so please interpret
“literature” loosely.

We seek completed papers of approx. 10-20 pages double-spaced
in MLA style. All papers will be anonymously reviewed by at
least two people on our staff. Please e-mail submissions with
author name and contact info on first page only. In an effort
to minimize our environmental impact, copies of submissions
not accepted for publication will be recycled.

Submission deadline: August 1, 2008

Journal Info:
The Schuylkill is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal
founded, edited, and run by graduate students at Temple
University. We are looking for interdisciplinary, scholarly
submissions in the areas of Anglophone literatures,
translation, and comparative literature and seek to publish
the work of graduate students from around the globe.

The journal’s name is a tribute to the Schuylkill River, which
runs through the Philadelphia area in which we work and study.
 But it is also significant for the richness of the metaphor:
signifying connections, and the incorporation of various
elements and sources. We recognize that the boundaries of
English studies are fluid and open to different critical
approaches. For this reason, we especially welcome
interdisciplinary research in graduate student submissions.
