EXTENDED DEADLINE: April 8, 2016
The Journal of South Texas English Studies is now welcoming submissions for its Spring 2016 issue, themed "Rebirth." Extended Submission deadline: April 8, 2016.
With this issue, we celebrate our first issue off from hiatus, and we thought it would be relevant to mark this relaunch with a look into the broad theme of renaissance and renewal as it relates to English studies.
Across the nation, institutions of higher learning are facing radical changes from many angles, whether they be budgetary, curricular, structural, or otherwise. As educational professionals, it is our task to manage this whirlwind of redirection with aplomb and finesse while maintaining a high level of success in our primary areas of concern: our students. How do we remain innovative and focused during these times of upheaval? How do we identify and strengthen our identities as professionals? Additionally, how to we assist our students in doing the same as they shape their personal and professional identities, particularly in developmental classrooms?

Knowledge Infrastructures in the Humanities - MLA 2017
What are the knowledge infrastructures, both material and social, that underlie the everyday work of knowledge creation that we undertake as scholars working in the humanities? How do they function? What are the infrastructural "things" and "relations" that influence or determine the nature or scope of our thinking and the forms of our outputs?

Shepherding Language: Restoring Faith in Words
Call for Papers
Recent headlines abound decrying the death of academic disciplines traditionally concerned with the care and tending of language. Has a loving and lyrical approach to language become an antiquated notion? Everything from research studies on the relationship between literature and empathy to informal conversations about the power of a good story attest to language's enduring capacity to incite wonder, motivate compassion, or provoke reflection. Words, indeed, serve as the means through which restorative faith is expressed to, explored with, and embraced by the reader.

Academic voices can often create divergence, difficulties, disputes, and unending digressions within disciplines, but what real differences do our voices make to our students and our colleagues and our world?
