This is a call for papers for Agora, the UT-Arlington peer-reviewed graduate student journal in literary, rhetorical, and critical theory on themes of “reflection,” a way of engaging with others, the world, and ourselves.
What are we excavating as we attempt to construct meaningful observations of ourselves, others and our environment? Certainly, these meditations, considerations, investigations, extractions and so on concern the often shaky borders between “inner” and “outer” realities. And, observation itself is flit through with issues of image, representation, appearance, and identity; while history, past, and origin are seen by “looking back,” past, present and future engage dialectically.
This issue is in connection with the 2013 UTA graduate conference, but you need not have presented at the conference to submit to the journal. If you did present at the conference, consider submitting an expansion or revision of your paper for consideration.
Papers are welcome on any of the above, or other, topics related to “reflection.” Papers should be 15-25 double-spaced pages, in Chicago format with endnotes, and sent to email@example.com. The deadline for submissions is December 15th, 2013, for a fall 2014 issue.
