Newberry College is pleased to invite submissions for the second issue of Studies in Crime Writing, which will appear in the fall of 2019. 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. We are open to a variety of theoretical and scholarly approaches, and to bibliographic and textual scholarship as well.

This special issue will focus on ideas of reuse and recombination. How were bits and scraps of materials, textual and otherwise, reassembled into new forms in the nineteenth century? To what ends? Essays might consider these issues in relation to images, fabrics, texts, and more. Possible topics could include scrapbooks, patchwork, quotation, citation, illustration, and any and all forms of recombination. Approaches from all disciplines, including literature, art history, history, music, and the history of science and the social sciences, are welcome, as are submissions that cross national boundaries and/or range across the nineteenth century.
Papers are invited for the SHARP affiliate session at the 2018 South Atlantic Modern Language Association (SAMLA) Convention. Potential topics include print culture, history of the book, authorship, publishing history, ephemera, illustration, publishers' archives, production, circulation, and reception. Papers addressing this year's convention theme, "Fighters from the Margins: Social-Political Activists and Their Allies," are especially welcome. What connections can be made between print culture/book history and ideas of activism? How have books pushed the boundaries of technology, form, artistic expression, and subject matter? What are the connections between printing and social justice, activism and print culture?
