Call for Papers — Studies in Crime Writing

Newberry College is pleased to invite submissions for the inaugural issue of Studies in Crime Writing, which will appear in Spring 2017. Studies in Crime Writing is a peer-reviewed, open-access, online scholarly journal dedicated to crime writing, including true crime, thrillers, prison writing, detective fiction, and noir. The journal's focus is on written work, rather than film, computer games, or other electronic media. Beyond this, there is no fixed topic for the first issue. We are open to a variety of theoretical and scholarly approaches, and to bibliographic and textual scholarship as well.

With the theme of "Border States" in mind, we welcome papers exploring the intersections between stubborn divisions and promising coalitions across lines of race, class, region, and nation in American literary texts produced before 1870. Possible topics might include: representations of border-crossing, migration and mobility, and/or troubled immigration; explorations of the cultural effects of urbanization and suburbanization, expansion, and/or technological innovation; the influence of literary texts on the cultural imagination and/or states of being and mind; the influence of "progress" on the literary imagination; and migrants and/or immigrants as characters in literary texts.

The sad passing of E.L. Doctorow in 2015 marked the completion of one of the richest oeuvres in contemporary American literature. His early novels (including The Book of Daniel (1971), Ragtime (1975), World's Fair (1985) and Billy Bathgate (1989)) are widely celebrated for their unique capacity to unmask the myths of American history and articulate the centrality of narrative in the formation of national self-identity. While these significant accomplishments have received due praise from both scholars and readers from the general public alike, there is a notable lack of serious scholarly attention given to the last 20 years of Doctorow's work.

Abstract Deadline: 15th April 2016

All texts and artworks will have at one stage been a work in progress, despite the tendency to value them as cultural artefacts once they are deemed finished and made available for consumption. Redrafting and editing are processes which strive towards a "final" product, meaning their publication often results in the loss or occlusion of multiple ancillary versions. Such materials are important to our understanding of how texts and works are shaped and reshaped, and by whom.
