Call for Submissions -- The Stranger Within

Why are we often troubled by the presence of strangers? What does it mean to encounter strangeness in ourselves or in the spaces we frequent? What are the ethics, aesthetics, and politics of naming the strange – and the stranger? The next issue of Rejoinder explores the theme of the stranger within. Submissions (including essays, commentary, criticism, fiction, poetry, and artwork) should address this theme from feminist, queer, and social justice-inspired perspectives. We particularly welcome contributions at the intersection of scholarship and activism. For manuscript preparation details, please see our website at: Rejoinder is published by the Institute for Research on Women at Rutgers University in partnership with the Center for Women in the Arts and Humanities. Please send completed written work (2,000-2,500 words max), jpegs of artwork, and short bios to the editor, Sarah Tobias (This email address is being protected from spambots.
