Diesis: Footnotes on Literary Identity Call for Articles
Diesis: Footnotes on Literary Identity is now accepting submissions for our third volume! The diesis, or double dagger, indicates a footnote or point of reference, and our third issue will focus on these footnotes or reference points in literary identity. Therefore, we encourage articles concerning any form of literary identity, regardless of genre, movement, subject, or theoretical lens. In this issue, we seek to consider the questions of how and why we interpret, understand, and utilize literary identity, and welcome submissions that take these ideas as their impetus.
Please send manuscripts of no less than 5,000 and no more than 10,000 words electronically to the Diesis Editorial Board at submissions@diesisjournal.org with "Submission: 3.1" as the subject line by Monday, 15 October 2012. Articles should conform to current MLA guidelines and be in a Word document format (.doc). All articles should be written in endnote format. Lines should be double spaced, including notes and quotations, and in 12 point Times New Roman with 1 inch margins. Pages should be numbered consecutively and should include a short title in the header. All articles should be written in or translated into English.
To facilitate blind review, please do not include any identifying information in your manuscript. Instead, fill out the “Author Biography Form” (found at the bottom of the Call for Articles and on our website) and include it as a separate attachment to your submission email. In the body of the email, please include the title of your submission and, so that we may comply with copyright law, confirm that your article has not been published and is not being considered for publication elsewhere.
While we encourage more experienced scholars to engage with and utilize this forum, Diesis is particularly interested in working with and publishing students and burgeoning scholars interested in the field of literary criticism. More experienced scholars interested in guest-editing special issues, writing a guest column, or submitting a review should contact the editors at editors@diesisjournal.org.
Further information concerning submissions to Diesis: Footnotes Literary Identities can be found at www.diesisjournal.org/submissions. For any questions, please contact the Diesis Editorial Board at submissions@diesisjournal.org.
