Corinne Blackmer

The editor of the proposed collection, called "Queer People of the Book:
Judaism and Homosexualities," seeks MLA formatted submissions of between
15-30 pps. Submissions should be well researched, engaging and, hopefully,
focus on topics and areas (i.e., medieval period) that have heretofore not
received much attention. But submissions are invited across historical
periods and disciplines, including Hebrew Scriptures and Ancient Israelite
Culture, commentaries on the laws, and the areas of Judaic, Queer, and
Women's Studies across various disciplines. Submissions can include what it
means to be queer and Jewish in pedagogical, religious, and political

The Journal of the Short Story in English: Special Issue on Henry Roth.

Although Jewish American writer Henry Roth is best known as a novelist, he
also left behind a rich store of short stories, both published and
unpublished, at his death in 1995. The majority of published pieces,
collected together in the 1987 volume, Shifting Landscape, were written
during the 60-year period between his first novel, Call It Sleep and his
second Mercy of a Rude Stream.

Hungry Words: Images of Famine in the Irish Canon

    Abstracts of 500 words or original papers of 25-35 pages are being
solicited for Hungry Words, an anthology which will examine representations
of hunger or famine in the works of canonical Irish authors. The terms
³famine² and ³canonical² are, of course, loaded ones in Irish studies, and
it is my particular desire to collect essays which question the various
manifestations of these terms in recent literary scholarship.

Lara Trubowitz

We invite essays and/or proposals for an edited collection on
interconnections between Philosemitism and Antisemitism in
twentieth-century American and British literature and culture. This volume
will focus on the use of the figure of the Jew and Jewishness in such
cultural expressions as literary and non-literary writing, art and museum
exhibitions, film, music, and theater. We expect these essays to question,
challenge, and redefine the terms philosemitism and antisemitism and to
complicate what are commonly assumed to be inherent tensions between them.
Essays might consider historical, political, or cultural intersections
between the terms, discuss the impact of antisemitic thinking on the
