Scholars working on any historical period or location are encouraged to explore this theme. Topics may include (but are by no means limited to):

While scholars of Early America are often careful to avoid anachronism, we are living in a moment of profound contemporary connections with communication networks of the past. In the Age of Revolutions, the creation and dissemination of information cultivated and complicated shifts in political ideology, commercial practices, and imperial infrastructure. Questions of access in these networks, of who can create information, who can circulate and commodify it, and on what terms, directly intersects with ongoing explorations of textual transformation in digital studies.

One of the original bestselling authors, Jane Austen (1775-1817) has successfully managed to bridge the gap between what is often perceived as the non-negotiable chasm between canonical and popular literature. Her works, two centuries after her demise, are, in fact without exaggeration, more popular now than in her own period. Once written off as an author who provides the readers with a limited perspective of the world — as her characters are seemingly unperturbed by political events, Austen shows unparalleled finesse in depicting the characters and setting using a “fine brush” to artistically explore and exploit her “two inches of ivory”. What is evident, debates regarding her subject matter notwithstanding, is that Austen’s popularity has not faded.
CFP: Women in Rock / Women in Romanticism
Of the 605 proposals received by Bloomsbury for their 2015 33 1/3 Series call for papers, only 18% of contributors and 11% of artists covered were women, even though the female series editor was aggressively soliciting contributions by and about women. Rock and Romanticism: Women in Rock / Women in Romanticism seeks to address a visible shortcoming in scholarship about women in both popular music and in English Romanticism by bringing the two together in this collection.
