I'm seeking article submissions for a volume of critical essays, which will be published by Cambridge Scholars Press. The collection will focus on twentieth-century female writers' responses to the work of Sigmund Freud with a particular emphasis on alternative models of the psychoanalytic process posed by women. The book will move beyond critiques of Freud and his influence on twentieth century ideas about gender, demonstrating instead the ways women writers have reclaimed agency through the artistic process. With that in mind, the essays selected for publication will address the following topics:

What animates things? How do organic and inorganic things live together in medieval literature and culture? Today thinkers are increasingly drawn to the nature of things in and of themselves, seeking material objects as they stand outside of the parochial, human subject. What can medievalists contribute?

Edited Collection: 20th Century Sentimentalism: From Modernism to Media

This collection will feature essays that examine how authors of the twentieth and twenty-first century continue the use of sentimental forms and tropes of nineteenth-century literature. Current literary and cultural criticism maintains that American culture engaged in a turn-of-the-century refutation of the sentimental mode; however, the analysis of twentieth- and twenty-first-century narratives contained within these essays reveals ongoing use of sentimental expression that draws upon its ability to instruct and influence readers through emotional identification.

The rise of the Tea Party in the US is a daily reminder that the battle over the past has very real stakes in the here and now. Turn on Fox News or am radio, and you're bound to learn that the founding fathers were all anti-government and pro-business or that the first American colonies failed because they were doomed as socialist experiments. This RSA conference panel seeks papers that consider the way modern political debates mobilize early modern thinkers, artists, and subjects -- Machiavelli, Shakespeare, Milton, and countless others -- for present purposes (in the US or elsewhere). How is our period of study being re-narrated towards particular ends?
