Call For Papers

The Humanities as a Form of Resistance
The first issue of Con Texte, Laurentian University’s interdisciplinary humanities graduate student journal, will explore the various forms of text that ignite revolutionary forms of political and social resistance.  Works should reflect the ever present need for political resistance as expressed through the humanities and emphasize the role and importance of text as a means of pedagogy, revolution, and reformation.  When politics fall into dangerous and threatening forms, many of us have few alternatives for opposition.  This edition will explore the importance of text in maintaining our sense of the world, creating culture and national identity, and centring our communities within their own power.  

We are looking for submissions exploring a wide range of topics, including but not limited to:
    •    feminist literature, philosophy, and all other forms of text 
    •    explorations of intersectionality in terms of art, literature and philosophy 
    •    humour and satire as forms of political commentary 
    •    explorations of empowerment for community and culture through humanities methods 
    •    scholarly reflections on music, poetry and prose as forms of resistance

We invite submissions from scholars at all levels and seek a variety of theoretical positions, differing and silenced opinions, and strange perspectives about the value of the Humanities. Please send your submission to contexte.journal@gmail.com.  More information available at (contextejournal.ca)
