CFP: Waste (11/15/05; journal issue)

updated: 
Thursday, November 3, 2005 - 6:42pm
VERB

VERB, a peer-reviewed online and print journal of the humanities, is
soliciting articles, fiction, and poetry for our second of four issues
on "waste," broadly defined. Submissions can apply, describe, analyze,
expand, or compare cultural, textual, or theoretical understandings of
waste in any form: garbage, excess, poorly-spent time, poorly exercised
potential, and so forth. Submissions can also examine how various media
-- literature, film, or the plastic arts -- interpret waste. And we're
open to other ideas, too.
