CFP: Static: Choice and Suffering (5/15/06; online journal issue)
CALL FOR PAPERS
Static Online Journal
Submissions are solicited on the theme of Choice and Suffering for the third
issue of Static, the online journal of the London Consortium (publication
date: end June 2006).
The concept of choice is highly valued, especially in the West, as a
fundamental right of free individuals. Our sense of being free is often
based on our freedom to exercise choice in the marketplace, in matrimony, in
the voting booth, or in the hypertext link. But choice has its darker side:
it can prove to be illusory; sometimes the process of choosing can be
agonising; making a choice can close off future choices; we are frequently
forced to make choices.
