In her 2014 A Cultural History of the Irish Novel, 1790-1829, Claire Connolly declares that a major aim is, and must be, ‘to restore seriousness and nuance to our understanding of the Irish fiction of the romantic period’, which her criticism seeks to achieve by ‘refus[ing] or at least redirect[ing] readings that treat the novels as so many failed efforts to contain the hectic world of early nineteenth-century Ireland’ (Connolly 1).

Rhizomes: Cultural Studies in Emerging Knowledge
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 15, 2016

2017 is the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's death. Austen has become one of the most discussed and beloved literary figures; indeed, her status as one of our most beloved literary figures has often influenced the ways in which her life and works are discussed within critical circles. Eve Sedgwick famously announced that Austen criticism is "notable not just for its timidity and banality but for its unresting exaction of the spectacle of a Girl Being Taught a Lesson." This special issue of Rhizomes invites critical articles and creative works that dismiss both this legacy of timidity and the tendency to exact pedagogical spectacles through scholarship.
