The Anatomy of Inscription (Special Issue of Humanities)

updated: 
Wednesday, November 8, 2017 - 1:18pm
Hunter Dukes, University of Cambridge
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, February 1, 2018

In their 1910 essay ‘Poetic Principles’, Nikolai and David Burliuk describe poetry as ‘sensible’, arguing that the word ‘changes its qualities according to whether it is handwritten, printed or thought’. Jacques Derrida widens this claim in Of Grammatology (1967), writing that one of the ‘fundamental problems’ when coming to terms with signification is the deployment of ‘diverse forms of graphic substances (material: wood, wax, skin, stone, ink, metal, vegetable)’, as well as different kinds of styli. How do the material properties of writing feed back into its semantic sense, differing when engraved in stone or tattooed on skin?

Rendering Rituals: On Memory and Memorializing

updated: 
Wednesday, November 8, 2017 - 1:15pm
English Graduate Student Association at Louisiana State University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, December 6, 2017

Mardi Gras as an event, a reiteration of experience across time, and a kind of ritual renders the new and the old as occurring simultaneously: our past always directly affects our present. This temporal boundary crossing reiterates and simultaneously invokes the past in every instance. In Gender Trouble, Judith Butler describes ritual as related to the repetition of gender performance across time, which denaturalizes the concept and instantiates gender as socially constructed. What if we apply Butler’s logic of the ritual to other concepts of human experience, such as race, religion, sexuality, and disability? Orienting ourselves within this Butlerian logic, we as scholars might think about how to interpret these ritual practices in memory.
