Ethos: A Digital Review of the Arts, Humanities, and Public Ethics—an interdisciplinary digital forum and peer-reviewed journal based at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill—invites submissions for its April 2015 issue (www.ethosreview.org). For this issue of the Ethos journal, we invite submissions of original scholarly work considering topics relevant to the project's broad intellectual interests in the arts, humanities, and public ethics. This "open" issue will publish essays on literary texts, the academy, contemporary music, or other trends in cultural criticism and "theory," particularly as these topics are inflected by wider social or political concerns. Interested contributors are encouraged to browse through our digital archive of forum posts and journal issues to learn more about the range of topics featured on the project. Contributors are also invited to email either Benjamin Mangrum (bmangrum@email.unc.edu) or Katie Walker (walkerkn@email.unc.edu) to inquire about the appropriateness of a proposed submission.

Essays should be between 4000 and 7000 words in length and should be submitted in a format adhering to the most recent MLA Manual and Guide to Scholarly Publishing. Essays should be submitted in either document (.doc, .docx) or rtf format. Please send all submissions to editor@ethosreview.org. Ethos publishes articles written for a wider intellectual audience, so authors are encouraged to avoid—or, in the least, use sparingly—technical jargon whenever possible. Submissions received before December 15, 2014 will be considered for the April 2015 issue. We also welcome reviews of books relevant to the scope and public mission of the project.
