deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 11, 2018

This panel welcomes submissions that explore how popular adventure fiction/boy’s books of the long nineteenth century were used as agents of social change. While often viewed as works for adolescents, such novels played subversive roles in dismantling traditional ideas and establishing new cultural norms. We are especially interested in papers that explore novels set in locations outside the colonial center that worked to challenge British assumptions about education/the educational system. Potential authors could include Joseph Conrad, Robert Louis Stevenson, H.G. Wells, or Edgar Rice Burroughs as well as lesser-known authors such as Louis Becke or authors popularized through translation, such as Jules Verne.

The Indian River Review

The Indian River Review is currently soliciting submissions for its sixth issue scheduled for publication in late spring 2019. The theme for this issue is “passion.” Of course, this word immediately proposes romantic passion, and while the editors are not against submissions that go in that direction, submitters should be careful. Think Wuthering Heights or even When Harry Met Sally, not Fifty Shades of Grey, specifically no erotica.
