_Modern Fiction Studies_ invites submissions for a special issue on
"Modernism's Jews / Jewish Modernisms" guest edited by Maren Linett. We seek
essays focusing on the period 1890 - 1939 that analyze inscriptions of
Jewish "difference" in fiction, film, and other forms of narrative or
examine the ways Jewish writers and critics negotiated literary and social
terrains. Essays might, for example, trace the aesthetic or political work
accomplished by representations of Jewishness in particular texts; map
intersections among disparate cultural and linguistic contexts; consider
what it means to read prewar texts from our post-Shoah vantage point; or ask

We are seeking three strong essays to round out an edited book
collection as described below. We would need a one-page abstract by
10/5, and full paper by end of December. We are planning an edited
volume of essays exploring the intersection between postcolonial and
globalization studies. We believe that such an exploration is important
to undertake at this time to counter the hegemonizing/homogenizing
tendencies we sense emerging in dominant strands of contemporary
cultural theory. It is unclear whether contemporary globalization theory
has been made possible by the postcolonial challenge to older
Eurocentric forms of globalization premised on the centrality of the

Due to last-minute cancellations, we seek 2-3 essays for a collection of
essays on the representation of the erotic/eroticism in American cultural
texts (literature, film, media, music video etc). While we remain open to
all suggestions, we particularly encourage prospective authors to submit
provocative readings of canonical texts and contemporary US popular culture.

Since we will only consider completed work, essays (ca. 5,000 words; MLA
style) should be accompanied with a short bio and sent to both editors as
soon as possible, but no later than 2 November 2003.
