CULTURAL INTERTEXTS started in 2014, as a result of a yes, we can kind of attitude. The name of the journal was meant to reflect the multi-layered textuality of the world embedded in cultures and embedding cultures in its turn. The first two issues came out at Casa Cărții de Știință Press in a single volume (1-2/ 2014) of 373 pages, with 23 papers on Literature and Cultural Studies, and 11 dealing with Linguistics and Translation Studies. They had all been presented during the 2014 edition of the annual Doctoral Conference of “Dunarea de Jos” University of Galati, Romania. Six years have passed, and seven more issues have been added to the collection.

“Rhetoric is a coproductive function of circulation in excess of human intention, which collapses rhetoric and persuasion into the rhetorical, a process of world making that extends relationality into future publics.”
—Byron Hawk, Resounding the Rhetorical (2018)
This panel will explore recent movements in rhetorical theory writ large, either in connection with or apart from composition theory and practice. Special attention will be given to proposals that engage with the conference's theme.
Configurations Special Issue
Call for Papers:
Science, Technology, and Literature During Plagues and Pandemics
In The Parasite, Michel Serres argues that “the parasite intervenes, enters the system as an element of fluctuation. It excites it or incites it; it puts into motion, or it paralyzes.” Throughout the world, COVID-19 continues to interrupt and alter daily life while it simultaneously compels governments to rely on technology and science to combat its spread. Configurations is seeking articles that examine intersections of science, technology, and literature with myriad contemporary and historical contexts relevant to COVID-19.
Navigating Chaos: Living the Apocalyptic Dystopia
Hegel wrote that the only thing we can learn from history is that we learn nothing from history, so I doubt the epidemic will make us any wiser. The only thing that is clear is that the virus will shatter the very foundations of our lives, causing not only an immense amount of suffering but also economic havoc conceivably worse than the Great Recession. There is no return to normal, the new “normal” will have to be constructed on the ruins of our old lives, or we will find ourselves in a new barbarism whose signs are already clearly discernible. (Slovaj Žižek, Pandemic!)

Intellectus invites submissions of research articles, interviews and book reviews that are specifically or broadly related to the focus: "'Floyding' Institutional Racism"
Following the death of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, there are protests, toppling and removal of iconic statues relating to slavery and racism. Despite some acts of reprisals, there seems to be an overwhelming acceptance of the protests and that there is an urgent need for reforms against systemic injustice to black people and/or people of colour. In memory of George Floyd, we refer to the various shows of acceptance as Floyding.

Special Issue "Contemporary British Culture and Neoliberalism"
Since 2017, the #metoo movement has been successful for the conviction of Harvey Weinstein, who was at the center of the landmark trial. The same cannot be said in the case of India, which is still coming to terms with the issue of gender-based violence. Our panel will examine the representations of women who have been forgotten or have been rendered invisible in the national and international media discourse. Our panel will examine such representations through the study of South Asian filmic and theatre representations of Dalit (lower-caste), Northeast Indian, and women who were foundational figures in the defining the newly minted nation—India and Pakistan.

March 11-14, 2020, Philadelphia
This panel explores how strategies for reading the Bible shaped literary output during the 16th and 17th centuries. Recent criticism in the field of book history details the reading practices that evolved in response to the Reformation’s call for direct engagement with vernacular scripture. This panel aims to bring fresh thinking in the history of the book into conversation with the perennial topic of the Bible in and as literature, offering new insight into how biblical reading became literary production in this period.
