We are looking for contributors to our edited volume, tentatively titled On the Edge: Essays on the Representations and Images of Frontiers and Borders in Literature. We would like to invite submissions considering the keywords of “frontier” and “border” in a literary context, and we are particularly interested in proposals that would give a new, unexpected meaning to these words. The frontier emerged as an important critical concept for an understanding of American history over a hundred years ago, and its status has changed from a celebrated catchphrase to explain away the perplexities of American identity, through an F-word not tolerated in the progressive circles, leading finally to a rehabilitated, more inclusive use.

CALL FOR CHAPTERS: UNDERWORLD: INVESTIGATING CRIME FILMS FROM TRANSNATIONAL PERSPECTIVES We are seeking chapters for an edited volume tentatively titled Underworld: Investigating Crime Films from Transnational Perspectives. With its thrilling subject matter and commentary on the consequences of urban and industrial modernization, the crime film holds an abiding fascination for filmmakers and audiences. While the historical lineage of many crime films can be traced to the international popularity of American and British detective novels in the 19th and early 20th century, this book project aims to expand the field of research of crime films into a transnational study of the genre.
