CFP: Georgetown University's "Predicate"

Georgetown University’s English Graduate Student Association is seeking graduate student submissions to their interdisciplinary humanities journal, Predicate. The theme of this year’s issue is “Time and Memory.”

The deadline for papers of no more than 6,000 words is February 28, 2013. If there are any additional questions, feel free to direct students to Annalisa Adams, EGSA Journal Chair (aa956@georgetown.edu).

Predicate
Issue 3: Time and Memory

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

Predicate is a journal out of Georgetown University that invites current scholarship from the greater D.C. academic community. Our goal is to establish a forum for graduate students to share their research and writing: a place to work with other developing scholars.
How is memory depicted in literary and cultural artifacts? What does it mean to be in or out of time? How does time affect characters in a narrative? How do time and memory interact in storytelling?

We encourage the submission of papers from all humanities disciplines that investigate topics from philosophical, historical, art historical, theological, literary, and/or women’s and gender studies perspectives.

Submissions should be sent as email attachments (Word or PDF) to Annalisa Adams (aa956@georgetown.edu) no later than 11:59 p.m. on February 28, 2013. Please do not include your name in the text of the paper. In the body of your email, include your name, your class year, the title of your paper, the subject of your paper and a brief biography listing your research interests. Papers should not exceed 6,000 words in length.
