Please act like you know, or at least have some idea, what we’re about. Thanks for your interest.
AMERARCANA is a serial publication (roughly annual) of poetry, creative & critical prose, other words & works of art gathered from the constituent pastings of our “grand collage” (to borrow a phrase from Robert Duncan), in an effort to map anew the geography of this rock, re-orient our selves with investigations of the global-local exchange, of spacial & temporal palimpsests & of the rhizomatous identities we all share & shape in common. The aim is Ur’s reposit, as it were, through what Edouard Glissant has called the “poetics of relation.”
