Launch: The Still Point Journal Issue 4
5 December @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pmFREE TO ATTEND
Traces as an indication of existence; traces of the past and/or future; traces that are visible or geographical; invisible traces; traces as inspiration; traces as a narrative. In this collection we see a wide range of interpretations of the theme, ranging from the evocation of linguistic memories of childhood to tidal erosion, the metaphorical cannibalism of the act of translation and quite a few beyond.
The Still Point Journal is a literary journal for Arts and Humanities researchers in London, established in 2014. The Still Point aims to be a forum for dialogue, collaboration and experimentation, and offers a space for creatively writing through ideas in original forms.
The Journal features short fiction, poetry and visual art, although its particular focus is on non-fiction writing, related – however tangentially – to our research and the kind of rich thinking and exploration we do during the course of this research. These informal articles and journalistic pieces, free of footnotes or bibliographies, should feel more like a collection of conversations had with fellow researchers over coffee than academic papers.
‘The still point’ reflects our experience of being new researchers and represents those moments when we take time out of our days for deep thinking and reflection: when the world gets quiet but our minds are still racing.
We are very pleased to be launching Issue 4: Traces.
