Rhizomes: Cultural Studies in Emerging Knowledge


Since 2001, Rhizomes has promoted experimental work located outside
current disciplines, work that has no proper location. We encourage
migrations into new conceptual territories resulting from unpredictable
juxtapositions. We are currently accepting submission for Rhizomes #9,
an open topic issue.

Due date for submissions: 01 October 2004

As a full text online periodical, Rhizomes emphasizes multimedia to
foster imaginative work that challenges typical critical forms. While
submissions need not necessarily include developed multimedia, authors
should consider how their work might be enhanced by elements specific to
the online medium. Contributors may work with editors and technical
staff to establish a more effective online presentation, for example, by
providing relevant image and/or audio files as well as specialized
instances of code.

Rhizomes engages in a collaborative review process. In addition to an
initial screen by the editors, contributions will undergo a "blind"
review by at least two members of the editorial board.

Interested parties are highly encouraged to review the Rhizomes website
– located at – to gain familiarity with the various
styles and subjects of previous journal issues. As our name suggests,
works written in the spirit of Deleuzian approaches are welcomed, but
they are not required.

Co-Editors: Ellen Berry and Carol Siegel

Review Editor: Craig Saper

All submissions to Rhizomes should conform to standards for citation
that govern publications in the author's field and should include a
bibliography, if appropriate. We will consider short pieces but
typically do not consider texts of more than 7500 words, including
notes. Any queries about potential submissions for the open issue are
