It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

New from Cambridge University Press!


Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

AlterNative: An International Journal of Indigenous Peoples

Call Deadline: 30-Nov-2012

Call Information:
AlterNative announces a general call for papers to be published in 2013

AlterNative: An International Journal of Indigenous Peoples is a multidisciplinary, internationally peer‐reviewed journal. It aims to present indigenous worldviews from native indigenous perspectives. It is dedicated to the analysis and dissemination of native indigenous knowledge that uniquely belongs to cultural, traditional, tribal and aboriginal peoples as well as first nations, from around the world.

AlterNative publishes papers that substantively address and critically engage with indigenous issues from a scholarly indigenous viewpoint. All papers must address and engage with current international and national literature and academic and/or indigenous theory and make a significant contribution to the field of indigenous studies.

Submissions responding to this general call for papers should relate to one or more of themes of the
journal—origins, place, peoples, community, culture, history, heritage, colonialism, power, intervention, development and self‐determination.

Submission and Deadline Details

AlterNative primarily accepts substantive articles (up to 7000 words) that address a particular indigenous topic or theme. We also publish short, timely commentaries which address a particular indigenous topic, theme, or contemporary issue affecting indigenous peoples (up to 3000 words long) as well as reviews of recently published books. Please visit our website for a list of books currently available for review.

A sample article and author guidelines, including format and referencing styles, can be found on the AlterNative website.

We welcome submissions all year round and early submission is recommended.
