New Issue of Palaver Published

Tuesday, May 10, 2016

The spring 2016 edition of Palaver, a national interdisciplinary journal housed in UNCW’s Graduate Liberal Studies Program, is now available online.

Palaver publishes work that spans intellectual and creative disciplines, including poetry, visual art, literary pieces and academic essays. This issue’s offerings include “Let(te)ring Love,” Ames Hawkins’ personal essay exploring parental relations in the face of a health crisis; a “cacophony of neon” represented in artistic interpretations by Ryota Matsumoto and Ronald C. Walker throughout the issue; and Eugene Sun Park’s “Resolve to be Ready,” a film from Eugene Sun Park that combines documentary techniques and performance art to explore issues of vulnerability, trauma, community and prejudice.

UNCW students compile and edit submissions from contributors throughout the U.S. and internationally under the guidance of Ashley Elizabeth Hudson, lecturer and assistant director of the Graduate Liberal Studies program and editor-in-chief of Palaver. “There’s a theme of perseverance running through these pages, which feels just right for a springtime read,” she writes in her editor’s note.

The next issue of Palaver is scheduled for publication in December. Information on submitting original work is available on the journal’s website.
