NEW BOOK COLLECTION OF ESSAYS - PHILIP ROTH'S AMERICA

Recently I guest edited the 2004 annual volume of _Studies in American
Jewish Literature_, Vol. 23, one devoted exclusively to Philip Roth's most
recent fiction. I'm now wanting to develop this special issue into a book
collection of essays, and I'd like to include several brand new critical
works on this later phase of Roth's career. I'm particularly interested in
essays devoted to _Sabbath's Theater_, _The Dying Animal_ and (ESPECIALLY)
the brand new novel, _The Plot Against America_. Thematic/theoretical focus
on these novels is open.

CFP: Reading and Writing Orwell's 1984 (3/1/05; collection)

updated: 
Tuesday, December 7, 2004 - 3:27pm
Randy Cauthen

1984 holds a unique position in the contemporary canon, because of its
accessibility to a wide range of students, its widespread effect on literary
and popular culture, and its very strong resonances with contemporary
events. For an edited collection, we are seeking articles based on close
description of student readings of this text, both to provoke more general
discussion on how varied students work with a single, commonly-taught text,
and how students in an increasingly Orwellian society read the book's social
and political content.
Articles from any pedagogical and theoretical perspectives are welcome, with
the proviso that articles in the finished collection should be centered in

Jesusland: An Issue (#72)

After the elections, comes the New Morality? That's the aim of the right-wing evangelicals who helped bring the Republican Party to power in the 2004 US elections. Beyond creating a third Bush administration, economic and religious conservatives now hold power in two branches of the federal government, control appointments to the judiciary, and dominate numerous state and local governments.

Croft, Janet B.

While J.R.R. Tolkien professed to dislike the works of William
Shakespeare, he was intimately familiar with many of the plays and was
arguably influenced in many ways by Shakespeare's writings. I am looking
for scholarly but accessible papers of 6,000 to 9,000 words on the topic
of Shakespeare's influence on Tolkien. This collection already includes
essays on themes from Macbeth in The Lord of the Rings, war and glory in
Henry V and The Lord of the Rings, the mythical function of forests and
trees, and catharsis in Tolkien and Shakespeare. Additional topics I
would like to include are the conception of elves for both authors,
Gollum and Caliban, the role of women, and women warriors. Other topics

Edible Ideologies: Representing Food and Meaning

CALL FOR PAPERS

We seek submissions for an interdisciplinary collection devoted to the
examination of how representations (literary, filmic, artistic, etc.) of
food and foodways serve as vehicles for the transmission of ideologies
about gender, sex, race, class, age, ethnicity, disability, and a host
of other identity constructs. Essays that provide a comparative
analysis of multiple representations are preferred to those that examine
just one text, although the latter will be considered. All submissions
should go beyond a mere "close read" to discuss the social and political
context and implications of the meaning of the representations.
