THE MICHIGAN QUARTERLY REVIEW is seeking submissions for a special issue reflecting critically on the thirty years since the fall of the Berlin Wall and on the current failings and future promises of Europe. We are not interested in nostalgia or celebration. Rather, we want outstanding work in any genre that addresses the dramatic transformations of 1989 as a contemporary issue and that recognizes local, even personal realities as echoes of global social and geopolitical problems. The Guest Editor for this issue is poet, translator, and literary scholar Benjamin Paloff. 

Prose: 5,000 words max. Poetry: 8 pages max.   

 We are particularly interested in translations of contemporary work.
