The Edith Wharton Review invites scholars to submit essays for a special
issue, Edith Wharton and the Provocations of Philosophy. Essays should focus
on considerations of Wharton's extensive engagement with Western philosophy
and with various forms of philosophical writing; on treatments of her
writing in relation to the work of classical, French, or German philosophers
known to have been of interest to her; on her work's relationship to
pragmatism; on Wharton and the question of women and/in philosophy; or on
similar issues. A fuller acknowledgment or presentation of Wharton as an
intellectually and speculatively animated novelist will be one of the chief
objectives of this special issue.

CALL FOR PAPERS

An Anthology Concerning the Role of Nature and the Environment in Film and
Television Representations of the American West(s)

Deadline: November 1, 2003

The first "westerns" were filmed in the wilderness of New Jersey and then
(Eureka) moviemakers discovered California. This anthology will examine the
use of western landscape (Monument Valley, etc.), the "role" of nature in
film and television westerns, how western environment affects presentation of
regional character and dramatic characters, and how the natural world has
been constructed, both figuratively and -- a sound stage or through creative
cinematography.
