WildeThing Posted December 20, 2016 Share Posted December 20, 2016 I dunno if this is appropriate but it seems like most of what is discussed here is about applications and there isn't really any other place for grad students to talk about their fields in general, so maybe a thread for general discussions of the literary humanities would be nice. I really just want to vent about 3 things right now: a. Upenn's CFP page is awesome but over the last few months it has gradually been overtaken by a company that keeps refreshing its long, long selection of journals. If the journals were reputable I wouldn't mind but no one in their right mind should consider sending the articles they've toiled away on to a journal of this standing, much less seeing how it basically spams for submissions, making it only slightly better than the predatory editorials that hunt you down from conference listings. It makes finding proper CFPs such a pain and I wish there was some mechanism to just get rid of them. b. Would be nice if when a conference tells you that they'll have an answer by a certain date, they actually respect that. It's annoying enough having to just wait and see if you get accepted in general, but when you expect a reply bt a certain date, it makes it that much worse when they don't respond. c. Always nice to send an article for review only to see the journal push their deadline a few days later. Guess I know response I'm gonna get there... Feel free to use this for non-complaining, as well. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
