Call for Papers: The Alebrijes Online Journal of Creative Arts

10 Dec

The Alebrijes Online Journal of Creative Arts is Seeking Submissions for Its Inaugural Issue

Deadline for Spring Issue: February 1st, 2016

Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis for future issues

Alebrijes is seeking work that simmers just above the subconscious. This journal takes its name from the Mexican folk-art of colorful, intricately carved figures that live, eat, and breeds on the open plains of the imagination. Alebrijes publishes pieces that open the horizons of Existence, that cross the nocturnal borders of our souls. Submit something that bores a black-hole into readers’ minds and pulls at their every thought. The Alebrijes Online Journal of Creative Arts enjoys experimentation, surreal elements, the shattering of narrative structure, the cracks within the photographic lens.

Essays can run the length of 300-7000 words. The essays we wish to publish are lyrical in nature, toeing the line between literature and philosophy. We enjoy Continental and Latin-American philosophy. We also have a fondness for aesthetics and critical theory.

Submissions should be sent as an email to alebrijesliterature@gmail.com. Please include a brief cover letter in the body of the email that includes contact information. In the subject line please indicate which category you are submitting to in all caps (ex. ESSAY SUBMISSION).

Please visit alebrijeslit.org for more information.

CFP for the 2nd annual conference is up!

23 Apr

Big news! The CFP for the 2nd annual conference is up and ready for submissions (due July 15th)!

Already the excellent philosopher Fred Evans (Duquesne University) and the amazing podcast, The Partially Examined Life (http://www.partiallyexaminedlife.com/) have signed up to join us!

Here is a brief outline of the theme:

The Pittsburgh Continental Philosophy Network is pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Pittsburgh Continental Philosophy Conference, “(un)commons: theory and public space.” Devoted to a critical examination of the public sphere, the conference is seeking papers and artworks that deal with philosophy, criticism, and analysis of public space, as well as those which deal with philosophy, criticism, and analysis in public space.

Towards the end of interdisciplinary collaboration, this conference invites contributions from a range of disciplines including philosophy, architecture, geography, psychology, religious studies, communication, rhetoric, and sociology, among others. Additionally, we strongly encourage artists and performers whose work deals with the notion of the “public” or the “common” to submit samples or descriptions of works in any medium—visual, musical, performance, installation, etc. We will accept paper and panel proposals on any topic relevant to continental philosophy, and particularly encourage those that seek to cross the bounds between multiple disciplines.

Additionally, since the conference will be joined by a live recording of an episode of “The Partially Examined Life” (http://www.partiallyexaminedlife.com/), we strongly encourage those whose work deals with the “new media”—including podcasts, blogs, youtube, etc.—to join us.
