>Fall deadline - November 1st  2006
>
>InterCulture invites essays for its fall 2006 semester issue on new
>methods of constructing histories. The 19 th and 20th centuries have
>expanded notions of history beyond the strictly epistemological realm
>and have allowed new and creative avenues to develop.  InterCulture
>would like to explore the methods and motivations for the discipline
>of history's evolution over the last century and a half.
>
>Historicity as a critical approach to understanding the past has been
>removed from its lofty Hegelian pedestal as a beacon illuminating the
>political and social events of the past. Instead, history as a subject
>has impacted other disciplines, becoming an interdisciplinary object
>in itself. New ways of looking at history and historiography may
>include personal histories, identity, cultural history apart from
>nationality, geographical histories, psychology and history,
>metaphysics and history, the production of national histories,
>language and the construction of historical dialogues, histories via
>literature and art, the purpose of oral histories, archaeological and
>scientific impact on human history, new histories since Darwin, media
>and history, the media-zation of history via the History channel,
>modern film and the internet, etc.
>
>The connections between history and historicity, philosophy,
>psychology, literature, sociology, religion are evident in the modern
>university curriculum. We would like to publish papers that seek to
>demonstrate the interdisciplinary connections between history as an
>academic discipline and its new forms and spaces.
>
>InterCulture is an e-journal focused upon the interdisciplinary study
>of world cultures, the celebration and contemplation of cultural
>diversity, and exploration of the commonalities of the human
>condition. InterCulture exists to publish articles and media written
>from an interdisciplinary perspective, without any preference for a
>particular theoretical approach. Creative work, book, film and music
>reviews are accepted as well.
>
>InterCulture publishes material on a rolling basis; please allow 1-3
>months for review. Articles should be submitted in MSWord or .RTF
>format and be between 3-6K words in length; book, film, and music
>reviews should be between 750-1250 words. Submissions are
>peer-reviewed.
>
>For creative work, video and images should be submitted in commonly
>utilized formats. (e.g., .SWF, MP3, AVI, Real Media, Windows Media,
>.JPG, .GIF, .WAV, etc.)
