Call for Submissions for 'Unbecoming': An Anthology of Post-Human Poetry

Post date: Tuesday, May 29, 2012
Deadline: 1 January 2013

In the twenty-first century, poetry interfaces with animal-machine. The “human” is not a given concept, but rather is one that is made in an ongoing technological and anthropological process. We hope to publish an anthology of poetry that participates in technological, biological, representational, sexual, political and theoretical post-humanisms. We’re looking for poetry that engages with or is written by animals, beasts, monsters, immigrants, creatures, aliens, cyborgs, queers such that it challenges western, enlightenment figurations of the “self” and “human.”

Any contemporary work in English (domestic or translated) that addresses the post-human is welcome. Please send up to 20 pages of poetry, in standard format (*.doc, *.docx, *.rtf, *.pdf) to Aaron Apps & Feng Sun Chen via submishmash.

Previously published work is welcome; please include acknowledgements (if any) and a brief bio with your submission.
