The rise of Barak Obama to the United States presidency, as the first African American to occupy the position, has heralded a new dawn both for America and the world. This development also underlies a re-shaping of political, economic, and social structures in a century that has seen a shift in perceptions toward minorities and other marginalized segments of the human race. Given this background, the Literary Horizons Journal, a journal dedicated solely to publishing the work of graduate students, is soliciting papers that explore the new century “Other.” Submissions may focus on such topics as contemporary views of sexuality, race, religion, nationhood, migration, etc.

Original manuscripts of 3000-3500 words in MLA format should be submitted
no later than October 30, 2010. Please include a brief biographical
statement. Papers must be submitted electronically (MS Word 1997-2003 document
only) to literaryhorizons@yahoo.com and hard copies sent by snailmail to:
