Specs is a journal of contemporary culture and arts at Rollins College.

Specs aims to create sympathetic interfaces between artistic and critical practices. The journal
invokes the spirit of John Dewey, for whom thinking begins in flux, in the "peculiar combination
of the understood and nonunderstood."

The editors invite submissions of theoretical and/or creative work for print and web issue.

The editorial board consists of writers and academics for a wire variety of fields. The editors are
excited by specialty, an excess of detail, fragments, narratives, meta-narratives, and pieces that
blur genre boundaries.

Please email submissions as word attachments to

Suppose that a stone with peculiar markings has been found. What do these scratches mean? So
far as the object forces the raising of this question, it is not understood; while so far the color
and form that we see mean to us a stone, the object is understood. It is such peculiar
combinations of the understood and the nonunderstood that provoke thought.---John Dewey
