Postmedieval: a journal of medieval cultural studies Launched

Today marks the *official* announcement of the joint venture between the BABEL
Working Group and Palgrave Macmillan, "postmedieval: a journal of medieval
cultural studies" [Eileen Joy and Myra Seaman, Editors and Holly Crocker, Book
Reviews Editor]. The journal will be published three times a year [in
print and
online], beginning in 2010, with issue nos. 1 and 3 [April and
November] devoted
to special themes and topics, and issue no. 2 each year [July] set aside as an
open-topic issue. More details concerning that can be found here:

The plans for our inaugural issue, "When Did We Become Post/human?" [co-edited
by Eileen Joy and Craig Dionne] are well under way, and more details
about this
issue and everyone involved in it thus far can be found here:

The full prospectus for the journal, including its background &
history, vision
statement, Editorial Board, and plans for future issues, can be found here:

The official Palgrave website for the journal, through which potential
contributors can access guidelines for submissions [and which will
also include
details about ordering the journal, specific issues, etc.], will be up
and running by May 1, I am told, and this is the address:

If you are going to be at the Kalamazoo Congress this coming May,
BABEL will be
hosting a party Thursday evening [May 7th], from 9:00 pm to 1:00 am
at Cityscape
