The Comics of R. Crumb: Underground in the Art Museum
Why are we often troubled by the presence of strangers? What does it mean to encounter strangeness in ourselves or in the spaces we frequent? What are the ethics, aesthetics, and politics of naming the strange – and the stranger? The next issue of Rejoinder explores the theme of the stranger within. Submissions (including essays, commentary, criticism, fiction, poetry, and artwork) should address this theme from feminist, queer, and social justice-inspired perspectives. We particularly welcome contributions at the intersection of scholarship and activism. For manuscript preparation details, please see our website at: http://irw.rutgers.edu/about-rejoinder.

‘There is no name for this: we read this as a truism. What is unnameable here is not some ineffable being that cannot be approached by a name; like God for example. What is unnameable is the play that brings about the nominal effects, the relatively unitary or atomic structures we call names, or chains of substitutions for names. In these, for example, the nominal effect of “difference” is itself involved, carried off, and reinscribed, just as the false beginning or end of a game is still part of the game, a function of the system’
- Jacques Derrida, “Difference”
