Issue 4: Reactions

Georgetown University
Deadline for Papers: February 21, 2014
(n.) - the part of a sentence or clause containing what is said about a subject
(v.) - to make an assertion; to postulate, suppose, assume

Produced by the Georgetown University English Graduate Student Association, Predicate aims to establish a forum for graduate students to share their research and writing: a place to work with other developing scholars.

For this year's issue, we invite submissions that investigate the act of reacting. What forms can a reaction take? How do time or historical context shape reactions to literature or events? How can a reaction impact the issue or event to which it responds? What motivates a reaction? Is reacting always a political act?
We encourage papers from all humanities disciplines including, but not limited to, philosophy, history, art history, theology, literature, women's and gender studies, ethnic studies, and LGBTQ studies.

Submissions should be sent as Word document email attachments to Maria Vrcek (mev37@georgetown.edu) no later than 11:59 p.m. on February 21, 2014. All submissions should utilize Chicago style citation. Please do not include your name in the text of the paper. In the body of your email, include your name, your program affiliation, the title of your paper, and the subject of your paper. Papers should not exceed 6,000 words. Authors will be notified of acceptance and, if appropriate, suggestions for revision by the middle of March.
