KAJET Journal No. 4 (on Periphery) is available now on loremnotipsum.com.

KAJET Journal Issue 4 features 20 written texts and 5 visual/photography projects. Besides the suggested themes, we are also interested in publishing short stories, autobiographical dreads and fiction, as well as visual projects, such as photo series and illustrations. Special focus remains placed on tackling academic subjects with a more accessible overtone. Therefore, we are particularly interested in projects that draw extensively from cultural studies, post-structuralist philosophy, critical theory, anthropology, film/cinema studies, architecture, ethnography, art history, cultural sociology, gender studies, ecology, political science, etc.

Those interested in submitting their work are invited to send us an email with the completed project as well as a brief bio by December 1st, 2019 at the following email address: contact@kajetjournal.com If your project is not finished by the aforementioned deadline, send us an email in advance and we can work together from there. For written work, the suggested word length is between 1,500 and 4,000 words.

KAJET Journal is developed, designed and printed in Bucharest, Romania. It is a journal of Eastern European encounters that seeks to be more than just a mere signal from the periphery—essentially, to move beyond a purely anecdotal understanding of Eastern Europe. Inside Eastern Europe — an urgent and topical subject matter that needs to be actively represented through the medium of independent publishing. In our attempts to approach scholarly interests with an informal overtone, we provide a platform for academics to co-exist with artists; in this way, KAJET Journal becomes an alternative space where Eastern European encounters are brought to the fore for the steady reader and for the culturally inquisitive Flâneur and Flâneuse.
