Leon Hunt

The editors of The Pro-Wrestling Book are seeking essays on all aspects of Professional Wrestling. The book's starting point is that wrestling, notwithstanding its 'low' cultural status, is an important topic for analysis both for its intrinsic qualities and for what it tells us about culture and entertainment. The book proposes to deal with wrestling in broad terms, inevitably exploring the powerful WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) organisation, but also looking at other styles and traditions. Accordingly, the book will consider the historical development of wrestling and the role it has played in different cultures.

CFP: Moral Chaucer? Ethical Theory and the Premodern Text (9/15/04;
collection)

A forthcoming collection of essays seeks to (re)engage the question of
"moral Chaucer."

Chaucer's immediate successors credited him with "pleasance" coupled
with "sentence," and some compared him with the great moral
philosophers Aristotle, Cicero, and Seneca. For later generations
Chaucer would come to be distinguished for his geniality and ironic
detachment in sharp contrast to the dogmatism and dullness of so many
contemporary moralists. Only recently (notwithstanding the exegetical
criticism of the mid-twentieth-century) have critics begun to
re-examine and describe Chaucer's "ethics."
