beginning to be included in its corpus. As such then, contributions that

Hungry Words: Images of Famine in the Irish Canon

Deadline extended to May 15, 2004

Abstracts of 500 words or essays of around 9,000 words are being solicited
for Hungry Words, an anthology which will examine representations of hunge=
r
or famine in the works of canonical Irish authors. The terms =B3famine=B2 and
=B3canonical=B2 are, of course, loaded ones in Irish studies, and it is my
particular desire to collect essays which question the various
manifestations of these terms in recent literary scholarship.

ng hock soon

I am writing this to clarify some points concerning this proposed
project for a collection of critical writings on Asian Gothic

spectres, radical evil etc. can be explored, but again, with careful
