UPDATE: New Formalism Collection

Extended Deadline 11/20

We invite contributions to a proposed collection of essays that examines
new formalism as a vehicle of literary inquiry. We see new formalism as a
literary, cultural movement that harkens back to new criticism, Russian
formalism, and structuralism, while embracing cultural theory and actively
drawing on new historicist methodologies. Because that’s a lot to cover, we
think it appropriate and timely to take another look at contemporary
literary/cultural theory and to call on scholars to reconsider the ways in
which they approach, analyze, and write (about) texts.

** The deadline for submissions has been extended to January 15, 2009. **

Women’s Studies currently seeks submissions for a special issue exploring contemporary 

motherhood. The issue will have an interdisciplinary approach, and we therefore encourage 

articles that deal with the literary, social, psychological, racial, cultural, and/or legal aspects of 

contemporary American motherhood. We are also interested in first-person narratives of 

personal experiences in mothering.
