EYECORNER PRESS is an independent academic publishing house started as a collaboration between the universities of Roskilde and Aalborg in Denmark, Oulu in Finland, and Gainesville, Georgia, USA.
THE PRESS focuses on promoting academic writing with an edge.
THE PRESS gives priority to works that
engage with rigorous thinking, but which are yet informed by a creative
style, and irreverent approaches to literature, culture, philosophy,
and visual art.
THE GENRES represented are academic interdisciplinary writing, poetry, aphorisms, fragments, and other borderline manifestations. The fiction manuscripts honor Raymond Federman’s precepts for the writing of critifiction, the conflation of criticism with fiction.
ALL MANUSCRIPTS undergo peer review. Readers include academics from both sides of the Atlantic.
THE PRESS publishes works in English, Danish, French, Romanian, and bilingual editions.
“The term critifiction is used because the discourse that follows is critical as well as fictitious; imagination is used in the sense that it is essential in the formulation of a discourse; plagiarism [read play-giarism] because the writing of a discourse always implies bringing together pieces of other discourses; an unfinished endless discourse because what is presented here is open at both ends, and as such more could be added endlessly.” (RAYMOND FEDERMAN, Critifiction, 1993: 49)
