Oxford Research in English, Issue 7: Craft

 

“In my craft or sullen art” -Dylan Thomas

 

Thomas is one in a long line who self-reflexively meditates on his own work. Indeed, a writer’s craft has been the topic of much discussion both by critics and by authors themselves, considering the interplay between a writer’s natural ability and her tendency to consciously create, between the ingenuity of her ideas and the discipline of putting them into practice. In doing so, Thomas, along with others, bring to the forefront an epistemological question: Is ‘crafting’ in opposition to art?

Writing Across the Curriculum

At its most basic, Writing Across the Curriculum is founded on the core belief summarized by Chris Anson in The WAC Casebook that “writing belongs in all courses in every discipline” (ix).  While guided by this central value, WAC programs must also be inherently flexible, individually designed to best meet the needs of their specific students, faculty, programs, and institutions. This diversity of possible approaches gives us the opportunity to share ideas, techniques, and experiences to explore the flexibility and adaptability of the larger WAC pedagogy.

The Writing Across the Curriculum section welcomes all submissions. Possible topics include but are not limited to:

The Indian River Review

Indian River State College
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, March 31, 2018

The Indian River Review is currently soliciting submissions for its sixth issue scheduled for publication in late spring 2019. The theme for this issue is “passion.” Of course, this word immediately proposes romantic passion, and while the editors are not against submissions that go in that direction, submitters should be careful. Think Wuthering Heights or even When Harry Met Sally, not Fifty Shades of Grey, specifically no erotica.

Fictional Religions (in Film, Literature, and Other Media)

updated: 
Wednesday, February 7, 2018 - 9:12am
AAR, Religion and Popular Culture Unit
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 23, 2018

I am organizing a panel in response to this year's call for papers from the Religion and Popular Culture Unit of the American Academy of Religion. In particular, I am responding to the call for papers on the topic of "Fictional Religions in Film, Literature, and Other Media." The creation of fictional worldviews is a fascinating aspect of robust worldmaking and mythopoesis, and the phenomenon suggests all sorts of interesting questions about the relationship between artistic creativity and the religious imagination, the dis- or re-enchanted qualities of the secular, the role of mass media in forming our worldviews, ways of life, and identities, and other issues.

Literature's Kinkiest Corners

updated: 
Tuesday, January 30, 2018 - 7:01pm
Drs. Howe and Cook, Southern New Hampshire University
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, February 15, 2018

We are currently seeking 500-word abstracts for an edited collection on kink and other fringe texts (taboo literature, self-published erotica, SM narratives, fan fiction, disavowed fictions, and other marginalized texts). In this project, we define kink broadly to encompass a range of "inappropriate" texts, understanding that kink often refers to non-normative erotic fantasies and experiences. We are interested in contributions that focus primarily on contemporary written texts and do so by engaging theoretical frameworks such as psychoanalysis, queer theory, rhetoric, and feminist theory. One of the interests of this project is an exploration of the ways texts shift in and out of different canons and categories.

Haunt Journal of Art is a vessel for critical interrogations of writing as both a tool for artistic expression and a means for analyzing creative practices. Ours is a commitment to providing a platform for new textual forms and strategies wherein the production of writing and art may serve one another.

The Department of English at St. John's University invites papers that think about narrative across literary and writing studies. Our topic for this year's graduate conference, "Telling Stories: Rethinking Narrative in Literary and Writing Studies," asks us to conside what is entailed in generating narrative(s). We seek work that explores the cultural place of stories and their various modes of telling--through drama, poetry, prose forms, performance, digital media, translation--as well as the role of narrative in pedagogy and writing studies, in any historical, national, or diasporic tradition.
