Reconfigurations 4 is packed with craft & research, difference & innovation, dialogue & figuration, song & vision. Sixty-one individual publications: thirty-two poems, one interview, two essays, nine visual poems, three graphic novels, three dialogues, two image-texts, four fictions, two reviews, and three critiques. Many (if not most) of those works defy ready categorization, however.
Reconfigurations is an open-access, annual, independently managed, peer-reviewed journal for poetics and poetry & literature and culture that aims to build bridges among different communities.
Our work here turns upon generative contradictions. We are both outside of established institutional hierarchies of process and production (we are online in the form of a blog) and we are the epitome of such systems (we are peer-reviewed). We seek to gather and present both creative and scholarly texts—a judiciously selected diversity of genres/modes and forms of discourse. We exist as a dynamic space for readers and writers invested in tradition and innovation. Such dedication to both/and, such inclusion of opposition, is required by our project of reconfiguration.
