Call for Submissions on Home/lessness

Locus Suspectus, a new magazine of art and culture, seeks textual and
visual proposals for its second issue exploring the notion of "home".
Globalization has made it increasingly difficult to conceive of home
as a
singular and stable location. Moreover, home for many individuals often
exists as a constant state of homelessness due to social, economic, and
political circumstances. Despite this plurality of meaning, home often
carries with it a nostalgic longing for stasis and a pressure and
to identify ourselves and others largely in terms of where we live and
where we have come from.

We welcome the submission of critical essays, cultural reviews, and
socio-political perspectives (in English or French) on the topic of
Artistic and written contributions could include critical
examinations of
