The VIGoR group at the University of Texas at Austin is soliciting submissions for the inaugural issue of its new journal, Contact. Contact is an experimental, interdisciplinary journal devoted to investigating the world of nineteenth century letters and will be published twice a year. The theme for our first issue is “Encounters”.
We are looking for a wide range of interdisciplinary submissions, from longer academic papers (5-8k words) to short essays (1-2k words). Shorter essays might offer reactions to recent conference panels and publications, describe provocative archival finds, or propose fresh critical approaches. Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration in the Spring 2014 issue.
Please review the attached CFP and visit http://contact.dwrl.utexas.edu/ for more details.
We look forward to reviewing your submissions,
