Recognizing that graduate students and new scholars face increasing precarity, Mosaic created the Emerging Scholar Essay Prize in honour of Dr. Dawne McCance, the journal’s editor from 1999 to 2017. This juried competition is open to students currently enrolled in a graduate program in the arts or humanities and new scholars who graduated with a PhD in these same disciplines within the last three years (on the date of submission). Eligible submissions will be evaluated by members of Mosaic’s Editorial Board.
Submissions must be received by: October 22, 2018.

The topography of the general issue is always rough and unpredictable. As the poet Trevor Joyce would put it, the granularity of every essay is different. The terrain is uneven, the content variable, and on the micro level all mapping gives way to terra incognita. Every general issue also has its high point: here especially the pages Joseph P. Vincenzo devotes to Nietzsche’s environmental aesthetics. In the present issue we have called upon “Zarathustra’s Animals” to introduce the fundamental problem, to perform a certain work, and to showcase and model a kind of relation to what Vincenzo isolates in Nietzsche’s texts as the “sensible particular (aisthētón),” “small things,” the “little that makes the best happiness.”
