FACS - Florida Atlantic Comparative Studies

First published in 1992, FACS is dedicated to the promotion of scholarship that bridges two or more academic disciplines or modes of intellectual inquiry, including different languages and cultures. FACS accepts submissions on a year-round basis, and also puts out a yearly Call for Papers on a specific theme. Papers are currently being accepted on the theme of "Remaking Reality: Eroding the Palimpsest." (Click here for the current Call for Papers.) Recent special issues include Narratives of Ending (Volume 7: 2004-2005), Coding the Human (Volume 6: 2003), and Catastrophes of Representation (Volume 8: forthcoming).
