Why are we often troubled by the presence of strangers? What does it mean to encounter strangeness in ourselves or in the spaces we frequent? What are the ethics, aesthetics, and politics of naming the strange – and the stranger? The next issue of Rejoinder explores the theme of the stranger within. Submissions (including essays, commentary, criticism, fiction, poetry, and artwork) should address this theme from feminist, queer, and social justice-inspired perspectives.
Hello! Sending a note to announce the extension of IVC's deadline for submissions to issue 29!

CALL FOR PAPERS

2. Models of the Universe
3. The Universe and Human Destiny
4. The Built Environment
5. Travel and Mapping
6. Reckoning and Keeping Time
7. Representing the Universe
This symposium seeks to examine contributions to the twentieth-century British avant-garde by artists and writers of working class heritage. The avant-garde is often conceived to be the domain of the elite – those with the financial backing, education, and networks to succeed in this competitive arena.
One of humanity’s most serious problems, climate change is clearly a ‘human-made’ catastrophe. Various factors have contributed to global warming now turning into reality. One of the most significant, along with power generation and industry, is of course CO2 omissions from transport using fossil fuels. While both technological progress and climate change are popular themes in literature, film, and the visual arts, the equivalent cultural obsession with these issues is both scary and paradoxical.
