Time for an update! The Call for Papers for Issue 2 is open, we are very happy with the number of people expressing interest in writing for Junctions and we look forward to your submissions. In the mean time, we are already planning for Issue 3. Christopher Berrisford and I met up with Jessie Wei-Hsuan Chen, the chair of the Humanities Student Conference Committee. We are happy to announce that, as with issue 1, Junctions will team up with the conference to create an issue on the same theme! Junctions and the Student Conference are both run by and for graduate students to provide a stepping-stone for these students to take their first steps towards presenting and publishing their academic work. Participating in both the conference and Junctions will get you the full academic experience!
The theme of this year’s Humanities Lectures and Student Conference will be “Imaginaries of the Future”. The Student Conference has already published their Call for Papers. We will publish our Call for Papers on the same theme early 2017, and we warmly invite speakers of the conference to submit to Junctions. Please note that a place in the conference does not guarantee a publication in Junctions. However, our deadline will be placed after the conference, giving speakers the opportunity to improve their papers based on the feedback and new inspiration they receive in response to their presentation. People who do not speak at the conference are naturally also be eligible to submit to Junctions.
