call for papers...

Judging a book by its cover:
fans, publishers, designers and the advertising of books
Edited by Nicole Matthews and Nickianne Moody,
Media and Cultural Studies, Liverpool John Moores University, UK

Book covers have long been the sole preserve of collectors and art
historians. This collection will draw a new range of disciplinary
perspectives - cultural studies, business and marketing, the history of the
book and literary studies - to make sense of book covers in the wider
context of publishers' publicity and the marketing of books.

Style in the making
The December 2004 issue of Cercles ( http://www.cercles.com ) proposes
to examine the possible geneses of style in the fields of literature,
art, architecture, music, costume, cinema, criticism and will welcome
interdisciplinary essays.
Style has long been the privileged target of literary analyses dwelling
on the music of prose, the rhythm of cadence, the choice of words, and
any other figures apparently giving identity to the written text. In
these, commentaries abound in qualifiers—like eminent, penetrating,
accurate—which reflect the impact of an author’s style on the reader
