Call for Essays: Critical Collection in English Studies

Essays are invited for a collection tentatively entitled, Interdisciplinarity,
Fusion, and Reform: New and Critical Inquiries into English Studies.

This collection examines the field of English as it is conceived of by James
Berlin, Michael Berube, Sharon Crowley, Gerald Graff, Stephen North et. al,
Robert Scholes, etc. Within this conversation, English Studies is “a new
disciplinary enterprise” (North), one that encourages “a clash of paradigms,
frameworks, languages, and methodologies” (Waller) in the field of English, and
one that also generates interdisciplinarity, “fusion” (North), and integration
of English’s sub-disciplines.
