Desire to detach from reality
Lack of emotional engagement and motivation

We accept two general types of submissions: critical essays and non-traditional (or multimodal) compositions, such as poems, short stories, or digital artifacts. All traditional essay submissions should be 2500–5000 words and follow the appropriate disciplinary guidelines with respect to style and citations. Please include a 250-word abstract outlining project goals and how the contribution meaningfully engages ongoing scholarly conversations. For non-traditional submissions, please expand the abstract to 500 words that details the project goals and articulates how the work would meaningfully add to ongoing critical conversations in the issue.
Please submit pieces for review by following the instructions on the Submissions (https://www.processjmus.org/question/submission) page of the Process website (https://www.processjmus.org) and include your full name and email address on the submitted document.
