Philament 25: Revisions

Edited by Ella Collins-White, Jennifer E. Nicholson, and Samantha Poulos

Academic work is not always thought of as a process of discovery; in practice, it is also often considered a mode of labour in which the end-product and its revelations are regarded as foregone conclusions. For Philament 25, themed “Revisions,” we would like to invert this notion to explore the ideas of possibility and play in academic work. Despite the seeming inevitability of various scholarly projects, this volume invites contributors to ask:  How might we imagine things to have been different? How could things have otherwise turned out? What if something had gone differently? In this spirit, we invite articles, excursions, and reviews that consider the notion of a rereading, a reimagining, and/or a revision.
