PARTIAL ANSWERS: JOURNAL OF LITERATURE AND THE HISTORY OF IDEAS,
winner of the CELJ "Best New Journal of 2004" award,
invites papers on the following subject:
Narrative as a Way of Thinking
In current usage the word =93narrative=94 means either a sequence of
events, where =93an event=94 is understood as a change from one state to
another, or as a representation of such a sequence in a visual or verbal
medium. In each of the two meanings, narrative is constructed: the
selection of events and their combination in a sequence is an act of
thought, whether expressive of a conceptual stance or developing and
adjusting one in the process.
The new online journal, Critical Mass: Journal of Theory and Fiction, is

the two, on the following two themes: coldness and cruelty. Submissions must

Image Events: From Theory to Action (edited collection)
Eds. Joe Wilferth and Kevin DeLuca
In a world awash in images, in a culture wherein images constitute the most influential form of public discourse, constructing image events (namely staged acts of protest designed for media dissemination) has become a crucial rhetorical strategy for corporate hegemony and citizen resistance. Such events, as has been demonstrated by Greenpeace, by PETA, by the Truth campaign against big tobacco and so many more, aim to heighten public awareness and affect cultural or mainstream ideographs.
