Call for submissions to the Bulletin

Overhead in Seville: the Bulletin of George Santayana Society has published every fall since 1983. This year’s issue will mark thirty five years of publication. 

We also encourage the submission of articles and other works for both this year (2017) and next (2018). Critical and historical essays on Santayana's life and works are of course always welcome. We also encourage short feuilleton-style pieces that suggest an idea or tell an anecdote of Santayana's life or that of his contemporaries, antecedents, or followers. We will entertain creative pieces that use Santayana's life or work as a starting point. 

We are also looking for original philosophic inquiry that is based on some theme important in Santayana's work. In that vein, we are looking to promote lectures and essays on the relationship between metaphysics and politics.

Whether you have a developed work that has not yet seen the light of print or an idea that is only in the early stages, please call or write me.
 The deadline for new material for this year is March 1, 2017. If you have trouble with that deadline, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me. All submissions will receive conscientious peer review and editing.

Richard M Rubin
President, George Santayana Society

Please Support NEH; NEH Supports the Santayana Edition

Dear Friend of Santayana,
The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is facing the possibility of elimination by the new presidential administration. The NEH has been extremely supportive of the Santayana Edition. Please contact the president and your members of congress to let them know that you support the NEH. You can learn about the proposed elimination and plans to stop it here<>. Since Herman Saatkamp first began working in 1976 to establish the critical edition of Santayana's works, the NEH has provided funding for research, equipment, and editorial salaries. Presently the NEH is providing $225,000 (and funds to match gifts) primarily for salaries for an editor and student interns through 2018. This is the sixteenth grant the Edition has received from the NEH. Please help ensure it is not the last. You can call and email today<> to oppose elimination of the NEH. Cordially, The Santayana Edition
