English Graduate Organization, University of Florida

"Horror," Eugene Thacker contends, "is a non-philosophical attempt to think about the world-without-us philosophically" (8). Beginning with his 2011 work In The Dust Of This Planet, Thacker's work on horror has lead, according to Quinn Lester's recent article in The New Inquiry, to a revival in thinking about this unthinkable possibility.

I am seeking essays for a proposed collection for Routledge, titled "Shakespeare's 'Mortal Living Ghost(s)': Supernatural Appropriations and Afterlives." The collection will take a broad approach to rethinking Shakespeare's use of the supernatural as well as how subsequent authors and artists have interpreted Shakespeare's image and/or works vis-à-vis the supernatural.

Memories on the Move: Asian Connections

Deadline for Submissions: June 30, 2015

As crowds of earnest bourgeois travelers displaced the solitary young aristocrat on the Grand Tour a vast body of literature concerned with both mundane and exalted facets of foreign places cropped up to fulfill a new set of needs. Owing to the diversity of places to which individuals traveled and the many different reasons for doing so, these needs were diverse and multiform.
