The Transparent Eyeball Blog Announcement

The Ralph Waldo Emerson Society announces The Transparent Eyeball, a blog devoted to
a collaborative study of Emerson and the innumerable circles of conversation in which he
participated and in which we continue to find him. We welcome short—500-1,000
word—submissions from undergraduate and graduate students, teachers, independent scholars,
early career as well as established scholars, artists, activists, and the general public. We
especially encourage submissions that address Emerson’s relevance in our 21 st -century moment;
consider him in conversation with philosophers, poets, environmentalists, artists, and activists,
within and beyond the nineteenth century; and explore him in transnational and interdisciplinary
contexts. Submissions may take any form—meditations, provocations, polemics, analyses,
critical-creative hybrids, personal reflections—but should be original work, jargon-free, and
accessible to the general public. Submissions will be received on a rolling basis and reviewed by
members of the Ralph Waldo Emerson Society Media Committee. Submissions may be returned
to applicants with suggested revisions. Please submit your Transparent Eyeball contributions to
