CFP: Literary London: Interdisciplinary Studies in the Representation of London (no deadline; e-journal)

Thursday, November 3, 2005 - 5:46pm
Lawrence Phillips

'Literary London: Interdisciplinary studies in the representation of London' is the first and only refereed academic journal to provide a common forum for scholars and students engaged specifically in the study of London and literature. It is dedicated to fostering an intellectual community that will facilitate interdisciplinary exchange. While the editorial focus of the journal is on representations of London in literature, articles in cognate disciplines that will contribute to readings of London are very much encouraged. These subject areas might include readings of London in history, drama, film, geography, art history, architecture, urban sociology, painting and engraving, etc.
