• Call for Papers 2021


    Connections: A Journal of Language, Media, and Culture invites high-quality research submissions for their 2021 publication. Connections is committed to elevating and supporting graduate-level and early-career research from interdisciplinary subject areas. Our second issue will center on the theme of building bridges: maintaining connections found at the heart of cultural, multimedia, textual, or language-based interactions in times of crisis. Building bridges  in times of crisis may look like community-building, resilience, protest, growth, or care work. We hope this theme will allow for nuanced interpretation.

    The journal welcomes original research manuscripts and creative works in a variety of languages from graduate students and early-career scholars throughout the world, including scholars working with non-normative or counter-hegemonic forms of research (i.e. research creation).

    Connections’ scope includes, but is not limited to, the following domains:

    • Applied and Mixed Methods Linguistics 
    • Translation (both Literary and Other)
    • Transnational and Comparative Literature
    • Media and Culture
    • Digital Humanities
    • Art and Creation

    The journal is seeking submissions that showcase innovative research that falls within our scope; however, we are open to accepting submissions that may reside outside of this CFP description. Please note that Connections is inclusive to non-English submissions and our editorial team will employ every effort to locate appropriate reviewers.
