Quiddle Pre-Launch and Call for Submissions

The School of Making Thinking is delighted to announce the pre-launch of Quiddle.

Quiddle is an interdisciplinary and multi-media journal that aims to enliven and expand our experience of the traditional academic platform. We maintain a strong commitment to inquiry while welcoming creative methods which elude the structures of the standard scholarly journal. Serving as a site for both critique and innovation, Quiddle affirms the transformative potential of putting on a silly hat while sitting with a serious thought.

In the spirit of the silly-serious, we invite you to submit to our Quiddle Pre-Issue: “Syllabus, Impossible.”

Syllabus, Impossible

The humble syllabus is a hybrid creature of unacknowledged creative potential.

At once a pedagogical apparatus and an inspiring map of projected insights to come, it oscillates between administrative routine and expanded flights of intellectual imagination. It can be the most exciting part of a course, existing prior to the real and before any physical limitation, suggesting futures of transformative epiphany.

In this special Quiddle pre-issue, we’d like to release the syllabus from its practical responsibilities and the constraints of our material world. What if the syllabus were to become a purely imaginative form?

We invite artists and thinkers to send us syllabi for classes or workshops which fantastically explode the disciplinary boundaries of art and thought: syllabi that bend the surfaces of the possible and the true, pedagogies that make productive use of obscurity and paradox, and lesson outlines that assign works of implausible challenge and impossible beauty.

We welcome syllabi that could not possibly be actualized. Or put otherwise: what possible world would your syllabus make true?

We are especially excited to receive submissions that include a course title and outline, assigned readings – whether real or invented – and an explication of the pedagogical activities and actions your imagined course would involve.

Instructions:  The deadline for Submissions is Tuesday Dec 1st 2015.  Proposals should be emailed to theschoolofmakingthinking<AT> and should include "Quiddle Syllabus" in the subject line.   Please keep your submissions under 1500 words.  Attach submissions as a .doc or .docx file and please do not include your name in the document itself.
