Becoming Changes: Notes on Emergence

Our call for submissions proposed a collection concerning emergence—that is, the phenomena of appearing & becoming—across a wide range of signification: matters aleatory or nascent; objects concealed or manifest; actions impending or close-at-hand; communities indeterminate or realized; occurrences unforeseen or unexpected.

Reconfigurations 4 is packed with craft & research, difference & innovation, dialogue & figuration, song & vision.  Sixty-one individual publications: thirty-two poems, one interview, two essays, nine visual poems, three graphic novels, three dialogues, two image-texts, four fictions, two reviews, and three critiques.  Many (if not most) of those works defy ready categorization, however.  All submissions and works accepted for publication were reviewed by the editorial board and/or by other external reviewers.

Reconfigurations is an open-access, annual, independently managed, peer-reviewed journal for poetics and poetry & literature and culture that aims to build bridges among different communities.

Our work here turns upon generative contradictions.  We are both outside of established institutional hierarchies of process and production (we are online in the form of a blog) and we are the epitome of such systems (we are peer-reviewed).  We seek to gather and present both creative and scholarly texts—a judiciously selected diversity of genres/modes and forms of discourse.  We exist as a dynamic space for readers and writers invested in tradition and innovation.  Such dedication to both/and, such inclusion of opposition, is required by our project of reconfiguration.

Works are accepted for editorial review, April through August.  Reconfigurations launches/publishes during the months of November & December.
