CFP: Activism (in The Presage)

The Presage (An Online Undergraduate Journal) issues a Call for Papers: ACTIVISM

Given the recent flux of events concerning civil rights and liberties, the editors of The Presage have chosen activism as the theme for the upcoming issue, due to release on Friday, 20 April 2012. Entries may address activism in any number of ways. Topics may attempt to address the following questions: What are rights and liberties in general? Do human rights exist, and if so, what are some examples? Who may protest, and how? Who should protest, and how? Can violence be justified, and if so to what extent? What is morality and how does it relate to ethics? What does Justice look like? What is global relativism and how does it relate to or complicate activism?

We are accepting essays, theses, theories, manifestos, research and like works which in some way speak to these and other activist concerns. The spotlight for this issue is Visual Arts. We are thus also accepting original images and film.  If you are interested in contributng a paper, image or video, please see www.thepresagejournal.com for submission details.
