CFP: English Studies Forum: "The Individual in War" (no deadline noted; e-journal issue)

Wednesday, December 3, 2003 - 2:17am
Strecker, Trey

        The electronic peer-reviewed English Studies Forum seeks innovative creative and critical writing. The editors of ESF want to feature engaging critical essays, as well as truly creative and experimental work—fiction, poetry, and nonfiction—that takes formal risks.

        The editors are currently soliciting manuscripts for a forum on "The Individual in War." This forum invites submissions that deal with the literature of war and its relation to the experience of individuals (rather than, say, "great men" or "troops"). Manuscripts might deal with literature, history, film, or other subjects in the humanities, where the primary focus is on how single individuals relate to war in practice or in retrospect.
