Time’s Arrow Press is aiming to be the industry leader in academic
Festschrifenâ€"collections of essays in honor or memory of individuals who
have made extraordinary contributions to scholarship and teaching in the
Humanities. Most university presses reject Festschriften out of hand, or
they publish them reluctantly and with little marketing. Time’s Arrow
Press, however, welcomes them.

Michael Moore: King of the Muckrakers (May 15, 2008)

I am seeking submissions for an anthology of essays about any aspect of
Michael Moore’s many works. I am inviting close readings and
interpretation of any of his films, videos, or essays. I am also looking
for analyses that contextualize Moore’s significance as a documentarian,
gadfly, and muckraker.

Submissions should be from ten to twenty pages in length and should
attempt to appeal to scholars and general readers.

Possible subjects for focus:

Moore’s style and purpose in one or more of his films: Roger and Me;
Canadian Bacon; The Big One; Bowling for Columbine; Fahrenheit 9/11; Sicko

Essay collection: Engagements with superstitions in early modern drama

We are still accepting proposals for a collection of critical articles on
the representation of supernatural imaginings, staged superstitions, and
enacted witchcraft and apparitions in the theaters of early modern Europe.
We are interested in both itinerant performers as well as stage productions
written for established commercial theaters.

The focus of the collection of essays lies with dramatic literature. At
this point we are particularly interested in essays that consider literary
interactions between fictional and allegedly non-fictional literatures:
pamphlets, treatises, and sermons.

In Action:
Social Engagement, Empowerment and Change

The eleventh issue of eSharp will consider themes of social engagement,
empowerment, and change. We welcome articles which examine the social
implications and practical applications of various theories, as well as how
these may empower marginalised social groups or promote social change. In
keeping with the interdisciplinary nature of the journal, the ideas of
engagement and empowerment within society can be interpreted broadly. We
encourage submissions from postgraduates in any area of the arts,
humanities, social sciences or education.
