Since 2011, William Eaton has been serving as the Editorial Adviser to and Executive Editor of the Zeteo: The Journal of Interdisciplinary Writing (the open access journal of the Liberal Studies Program of the City University of New York): http://zeteojournal.com/
The objective of the journal is to serve as a bridge from the interdisciplinary reading and reflection of its writers to the real-world concerns of readers. The journal seeks a combination of solid interdisciplinary scholarship, independent thinking and good writing. We have a particular interest in essays that combine the personal, the political and the intellectual.
In addition, in the spring of 2012, William launched Zeteo Reviews (http://zeteojournal.com/reviews/) and Zeteo is Reading. In the former space you will find reviews of interdisciplinary works, particularly those published by university presses and smaller presses. The goals of this project include calling more attention to interdisciplinary scholarship and writing, and exploring the nature and potential of this field. Interdisciplinary writers face special challenges—jacks of all trades and masters of none?—and also enjoy a great opportunity: seeing the light sparked by the mixing of insights from disparate fields. Generalists in a world of specialists, such writers can help us center ourselves.
While Zeteo itself is on a biannual publishing schedule (spring and fall), Zeteo Reviews is a rolling publication with reviews published as they are completed. In this way it seeks to take advantage of a capacity of e-publishing, shortening the time required before writers see their work reviewed, or see their reviews published.
Zeteo is Reading (http://zeteojournal.com/zeteo-is-reading/) is a daily diary of what Zeteo editorial collective members are reading. It has been compared to a stroll on a Parisian boulevard in the nineteenth century—a boulevard of books and journals and advertising signs and . . . Check it out.
