S.L. Harrison

Menckeniana, a refereed scholarly quarterly, invites papers up to 25
pages in length that discuss the literary criticism of author, editor
and scholar H.L. Mencken during his tenure as editor of the Smart Set
and/or the American Mercury. Possible topics could include Mencken's
influence on other journals in the U.S. and abroad; his criteria for
judging a literary work; his attitude toward poetry. Examinations of
Mencken's professional relationships or correspondence with other
writers and editors are also welcome. Very brief papers (3-5 pages)
may succinctly present some item of scholarly significance of
interest to Mencken scholars that does not lend itself to treatment

Special Issue

Exploration and Adventure in the 19th Century American West

ATQ announces a special issue for 2004 on exploration and adventure in the
nineteenth-century American West. This issue seeks to expand studies of
exploration and adventure in the American West in light of recent
developments in literary and cultural studies. This issue encourages
considerations of well-known and less well-known explorations and
adventures in the West.

Articles might engage questions such as:

How might a study of exploration and adventure help us to reconsider
relatively monolithic conceptions of the West as it relates to
masculinity, femininity, race, and ethnicity?

The European Journal of American Culture

In the next few months I will take over the editorship of EJAC from Professor
Richard Ellis of Nottingham Trent University, and would like to thank him for
all the work which he has put into the journal over so many years.

In addition to the staple fare of the journal (scholarly articles and book
reviews) the editorial team want to broaden the focus of the journal. In
particular we want to include spaces for comment and reply so that
developments in American culture can be highlighted and discussed as they are
happening rather than retrospectively.
