Hungry Words: Images of Famine in the Irish Canon

    Abstracts of 500 words or original papers of 25-35 pages are being
solicited for Hungry Words, an anthology which will examine representations
of hunger or famine in the works of canonical Irish authors. The terms
³famine² and ³canonical² 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.

interconnections between Philosemitism and Antisemitism in
twentieth-century American and British literature and culture. This volume
will focus on the use of the figure of the Jew and Jewishness in such
cultural expressions as literary and non-literary writing, art and museum
exhibitions, film, music, and theater. We expect these essays to question,

Alex Reid

As Professional and Technical Writing grows at the undergraduate level from
a narrow pre-professional track to a discipline, complete with its own
undergraduate degree and certificate programs, faculty administrators often
seek grounded and detailed descriptions of how to picture, develop, promote
and sustain their programs. A strong need exists for a volume of reflective
discussion aimed at explaining the context and specifics of running a PWT
program, one grounded in specific institutional contexts and yet ³portable²
to other sites and situations.
