Call for Chapter Proposals (due 9/15/17): Edited Collection, The Material Culture of Writing

Cydney Alexis and Hannah Rule, editors

Deadline for Chapter Proposals: September 15, 2017

We invite proposals for chapter contributions to an edited collection on the material culture of writing. In particular, we are interested in work on the nature, histories, and roles of writing objects, read through a material culture studies (MCS) and consumer research lens. By putting MCS into conversation with writing and rhetorical studies, this collection aims to magnify the focus on the material things that sustain writerly acts and identities.

The Literary Interface

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 1, 2017

This convention will bring together scholars working across the broad field of literary studies to discuss the literary as an interface between different forms of knowledge and processes of knowledge formation, looking at questions of how and through what means the literary is communicated, represented, negotiated, and remade. By placing the concept of the literary centre-stage while at the same time interrogating its role as an interface, we wish to open up for discussion questions about the role, dynamism, and value of the literary in a time of institutional change and ongoing disciplinary formation.

Jonathan Swift was a traveller, in his imagination as well as in life, regularly making his way, by ship and by foot, back and forth between Ireland and England during major periods of his life. Swift also travelled through genres and voices, among men and women, and between politics and religion. His works have travelled as well, through space and time, in numerous editions, along with translations, responses, adaptations, abridgements, continuations, and illustrated versions.
