reality of the world around us, science fiction has unceasingly put it to

Call for Papers: Novel Geographies: Space and the British Novel, 1660-
1900

Essays of between 9,500 to 7,000 words sought for a new book collection
focusing on the ways in which representations of space change in British
prose fiction from the seventeenth to the nineteenth century. Interested
authors should discuss how historical forces, such as colonialism,
slavery, industrialization, or urbanization, impact the imaginary "space"
of the novel and nation, as well as how varying constructs of identity
and/or experience (e.g. of race, religion, class, gender, or global
location) influence these newly emerging forms of narrative imagination
or "novel geographies."
