diacritics is launching a mini-series of thematic issues entitled “Thinking with the Sciences,” to be published in volumes 41 and 42. We believe it is now time for scholars in the humanities and the literary disciplines to think with the sciences (and not against, or instead of them). Our title also suggests that epistemology is necessary but not sufficient; and that the promotion of an ancillary use of philosophy and the arts as illustrations or aesthetic adornments for “scientific knowledge” is not what matters. We welcome bold, broad, interdisciplinary, and theoretically sophisticated submissions that could be of relevance to this series.

Beginning with volume 40, diacritics will use The Chicago Manual of Style as its style guide. Please prepare manuscripts according to The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition, with endnotes (short form) and bibliography. Include an abstract at the beginning of the document. The author’s name should not appear on the manuscript. Essays of between 8,000 and 11,000 words should be sent as an email attachment to the managing editor, Diane Brown: diane.brown@cornell.edu. Please indicate that the submission is for “Thinking with the Sciences.” The submission deadline is July 15, 2012.
