CFP: Predicate at Georgetown University

January 9, 2014 8:02 PM
Georgetown University’s
English Graduate Student Association would like to invite graduate students
to consider submitting to our annual interdisciplinary humanities journal,
Predicate. The theme of this year’s journal is “Reactions.”

The deadline for papers of no more than 6,000 words is February 14,
2014. If there are any additional questions, feel free to contact
Maria Vrcek (mev37@georgetown.edu).

Deadline for Papers:
February 14, 2014 

predicate

(n.) - the part of a sentence or
clause containing what is said about a subject

(v.) - to make an assertion; to
postulate, suppose, assume

Produced by the Georgetown University English Graduate
Student Association, Predicate aims to establish a forum for graduate students to
share their research and writing: a place to work with other developing
scholars.  

For this year’s issue, we invite submissions that
investigate the act of reacting. What forms can a reaction take? How do time or historical context
shape reactions to literature or events? How can a reaction impact the issue or
event to which it responds? What motivates a reaction? Is reacting always a
political act?

We encourage papers from all humanities disciplines
including, but not limited to, philosophy, history, art history, theology, literature,
women’s and gender studies, ethnic studies, and LGBTQ studies.


Submissions should be
sent as Word document email attachments to Maria Vrcek
(mev37@georgetown.edu) no later than 11:59 p.m. on February 14, 2014. All
submissions should utilize Chicago style citation. Please do not include your
name in the text of the paper. In the body of your email, include your name,
your program affiliation, the title of your paper, and the subject of your
paper. Papers should not exceed 6,000 words. Authors will be notified of
acceptance and, if appropriate, suggestions for revision
by the middle of March.
