CFP Exegesis ejournal deadline 30th April 2012
full name / name of organization:
Exegesis ejournal, English Dept, Royal Holloway, University of London
‘An aphorism, properly stamped and moulded, has not been “deciphered” when it has simply been read: rather, one has to begin its exegesis, - for which is required an art of exegesis’.
In our inaugural issue we wish to address the diversity of meanings available to this e-journal’s title — Exegesis. Though exegesis traditionally applies to the interpretation of a religious text, it has also been applied to secular literature in an attempt to understand an author’s intended meaning. We view the broader concept of the term exegesis as a critical explanation of a work of literature across the disciplines. To this end, we invite articles, reviews, and creative pieces that provide any type of exploration of the meaning of a text.
Possible topics might include, but are not limited to:
- Studies of religious texts in relation to the secular
We welcome submissions of articles, reviews, and creative pieces by 30th April to firstname.lastname@example.org. After being submitted for peer review, refereed articles will be selected and published in our September 2012 issue.
We welcome previously unpublished essays, short articles, reviews, and creative pieces on each issue’s theme, and encourage you to fully explore the meaning of exegesis.
Essays and short articles should be between 4000-6000 words and reviews around 1000 words (including all references), and must adhere to the MHRA referencing and style guide. Creative pieces are welcomed of no more than 5000 words.
Your submission email should include your name, academic affiliation, the title of your submission, 5-7 keywords, and a 3-5 sentence abstract of the article or review piece. All attached submissions should be unnamed, to ensure impartiality during the selection process.
All submissions should be sent as Word documents (.doc format) to email@example.com.
