Arise!: Call For Submissions

Arise! Journal Call for Submissions

Arise! is a journal dedicated to bringing theory and practice into dialogue. The editorial collective is particularly interested in discussions of post/anti-colonialism, feminism and queer thought, Marxism, anarchism, environmentalism, and contemporary activist struggles in the United States and elsewhere.

Arise! is published quarterly, and each issue is thematically arranged, carrying a number of articles (ranging in length between 1000-3000 words) related to the central theme. Each issue also publishes a number of reviews of recently published book (generally between 300-500 words). Future themes include: Literature (Winter 2005), Music (Spring 2005), Spirituality & Religion (Summer 2005), and Sexuality, Sex and Gender (Fall 2005).

For the issue on Literature, we are especially interested in articles that discuss the work of individual authors (Kurt Vonnegut, George Orwell, Toni Morrison, Kathy Acker, Margaret Atwood, etc.), groups of authors (the Beats, the Situationists, the Surrealists, etc.), individual novels or series, whole genres (romance, science fiction, fantasy, magic realism, etc.), as well as discussions of literature and its relationship to Marxist/feminist/anarchist/GLBT/anticolonial thought and action, personal reflections on the importance of literature, and literature and its relationship with race and ethnicity, sex, gender and sexuality, class, nationalism and patriotism, etc. We are not interested in works of fiction. Submissions must be received by January 15th.

I wish I lived in the St. Paul area so I could get my hands on a copy. Sounds like a really cool magazine.

Brett,

The twin cities were recently declared the most literate/literary cities in the US... I wouldn't mind finding a job in the region (minnesota/wisconsin).

An added bonus would be the Boundary Waters and the wild open spaces...
