Text in Context: A Graduate Student Journal - 31 August 2013
Text in Context: A Graduate Student Journal
Text in Context is a graduate student journal published electronically by Southern Connecticut State University. We seek submissions exploring the text itself and its function(s) and implications both internally and externally—literary analysis, poetry studies, critical theory, popular reception of a particular work, close readings, historical relevance, etc. Though the journal primarily deals with English studies, we welcome original papers from other disciplines, provided those papers focus on the text and/or its context—pedagogy and instructional design, localization of language in the brain, regional dialects and their origins, etc.
The first issue of Text in Context (Fall 2013) will include selected papers from the April 2013 Southern Connecticut State University Annual Graduate English Conference. We currently seek additional scholarly papers to include in the publication.
Sample topics may include, but are not limited to:
adaptations of texts
composition and rhetoric
interpretations of literature
reception of texts
teaching with technologies
writing across the curriculum
The submission deadline for our Fall 2013 issue is August 31, 2013. The deadline for our Spring 2014 issue will be February 28, 2014.
Please send submissions electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org as MS Word email attachments. Submissions are reviewed anonymously; thus, author name and contact information should appear in a separate file and not in the manuscript itself.
Submissions should be no longer than 2,500 words in length, set in 12pt, Times New Roman font, double-spaced, with 1" margins, and adhere to 2009 MLA style. All submissions must be the author's original thought and therefore must include a complete works cited page also in MLA format. Please also include a short abstract and author bio, no more than 150 words each.
If figures, illustrations, and/or video clips accompany the submission, please present them in separate files. The author has sole responsibility for any copyright permissions and fees.
Authors must be currently enrolled in a program of graduate study at an accredited university. Submissions must be previously unpublished, but the author retains future publishing rights.
