Call For Proposals
Topic: “The Writer on Writing, The Artist on Art”
The Department of French Studies at Brown University announces the topic of its Spring/Summer 2004 issue of Equinoxes: A Graduate Journal of French and Francophone Studies
We invite graduate students to submit papers relevant to the theme of the writer on writing, or the artist on art, as it pertains to literary and artistic creation. While keeping the topic as broad as possible, we hope to focus on the complex relationships between the artist-creator and her or his work. We welcome submissions that treat French and Francophone works, as well as broader cultural or theoretical issues, from the Middle Ages to the present.
The Spring/Summer 2004 Issue of Equinoxes: A Graduate Journal of French and Francophone Studies will be devoted in part to the proceedings of our conference, to be held March 12 and 13, 2004, at Brown University. Those wishing to have their articles considered for publication in the journal should be prepared to send us their papers by March 8, 2004 (NB: this is one week before the conference). Articles should be MLA style and between 2500-3500 words in length. Submissions should be made electronically by sending an e-mail to Equinoxes@brown.edu with the author's name, affiliation and contact information in the body of the message and the text in attachment. No abstract is necessary for those interested only in publication in the Equinoxes journal.
Topics addressed may include, but will not be limited to the following:
Self-Portrait and Autobiography
The Writer as Protagonist, the Artist as Subject
Roland Barthes’s “Writerly Text”
Women Writers on Women(’s) Writing
The Relationship of Writers and Artists to Creative Expression in the Age of the Internet and the Hypertext
The Pseudonym and Other Shrouded Identities
Why Write? Why Create Art?
Artists Defining Art, Writers Defining Writing
Equinoxes is an electronic journal committed to academic excellence and creative scholarship published twice yearly by the graduate students of Brown University's Department of French Studies in conjunction with its annual conference, a tradition since 1993. Intended as a forum for exchange among graduate students in French & Francophone Studies and related fields, Equinoxes publishes scholarly articles in both French and English, as well as book reviews, interviews, commentaries on the field, short fiction, poetry and translations. In the interest of promoting dialogue across periods and genres, each issue is designed around a proposed theme. However, the journal also maintains an "open" space for quality writing that falls under any of the above-mentioned categories, regardless of its subject.
