Call for submissions: issue 54 – love

“Love, exciting and new/ Come aboard, we’re expecting you” (Paul Williams, Love Boat Theme)

“Once the first avowal has been made, “I love you” has no meaning whatever; it merely repeats in an enigmatic mode – so blank does it appear – the old message (which may not have been transmitted in these words). I repeat it exclusive of any pertinence; it comes out of the language, it divagates – where?” (Roland Barthes [trans. Richard Howard], A Lover’s Discourse)

Submissions are invited for the 54th issue of brief, which will be a thematic issue on love, edited by Olivia Macassey. Submissions are to be received by February 29, 2016, and can be emailed to brief.the.journal [at]gmail.com.
