NOTES FOR CONTRIBUTORS

‘Re-‘ blogs are comments or questions about something that is going to happen, has happened, or just a general observation or problem you are mulling over at the moment that has something to do with cultural repetition – i.e. is a phenomenon of consciously public iteration. They are interdisciplinary – in other words, a space for sharing insights from a discipline, field, or subject for those outside it; or a place for saying something that doesn’t fit our conventional separate categories or concepts.

The seminar series we run at CRASSH gives you a taste of the kinds of topics we see as having a key association with repetitive conditions or practices: http://www.crassh.cam.ac.uk/programmes/re-interdisciplinary-network. What’s interesting is how these different ‘Re-‘ topics begin to overlap, or appear to be related.

Posts should be between 600 and 800 words, and include an image (we can help you with that). A series of posts can be proposed, if needed.

The steps:

  1. Send a short proposal for a blog post to the editors at reinterdisciplinarynetwork@gmail.com, identifying the one or two main points you want to make, and attaching any relevant material (for example, that you might condense, or review). For general preliminary enquiries, email Clare L. E. Foster at clef3@cam.ac.uk.
  2. The editorial team meet on alternate Mondays to discuss proposals (next meetings Oct 14th, Oct 28th, Nov 11th). If accepted, an individual editor will be assigned, and a publication date agreed between author and editor.
  3. First drafts and author bios (50 words) are due from authors by the Monday before publication, plus a preferred image or images (so rights can be cleared).

To request a particular publication slot in advance (eg to coincide with an event) email us at reinterdisciplinarynetwork@gmail.com.
