Call for Submissions for Your Black Eye, an e-Journal for Critical Consciousness
Call for Papers Deadline:
Your Black Eye
An e-Journal for Critical Consciousness
"You started to see things more clearly the moment you were struck..."
A Call for Articles, Fiction, Film, and Poetry for the First Issue
The YBE editors have been punched in the face by their own preconceptions about politics, economics, and culture, and encourage contributions from others reflecting moments of striking critical clarity and black eye encounters with the sublime.
Your Black Eye is a bruise, your bruise; nonetheless, it allows you to see things in a new, critical way. You may, for example share Your Black-Eye-perspective on Iraq, the 2004 U.S. Election, deficit spending, gender, sexuality, race, religion, education, immigration, and labor issues, among others. YBE welcomes critical examinations of popular culture, contemporary values, and current affairs.
YBE encourages contributions from anyone, regardless of academic, political, cultural, and economic background. We want you to describe how you became aware of your own critical consciousness. Your submission may take literal or metaphorical forms; it can be a statement of recognition (i.e., you see a problem), confession (i.e., you see how you are part of the problem), and/or resolution (i.e., you see a way to solve the problem).
Submissions can be in a variety of formats, including, but not limited to:
Text: 5000 words or less, any genre, fiction, non-fiction (argumentative essay, research paper), poetry, etc., in a MS Word format.
Photos, Paintings, Sculpture, Drawings: (jpg, bmp, gif)
Videos: 10 minutes or less in Real Player or Windows Media Player formats.
In addition, book reviews, music reviews, movie reviews, and event reviews are also encouraged, so long as they fit within the context of the Black Eye experience.
All submissions must be original work, not previously published.
Deadline for submissions for the first volume: January 28, 2005.
Advance submissions encouraged.
