CALL FOR PAPERS

COLLECTION OF ESSAYS ON HANIF KUREISHI

Contributors are sought for a collection of original essays on Hanif
Kureishi's writing and filmmaking. The deadline for 500-word abstracts is
10th November 2003. It is intended that the volume should explore each of
the genres within which Kureishi works (novels, plays, screenplays, films,
short stories, essays and music criticism). I am particularly interested
in receiving contributions that take new approaches to his best-known
works and that explore facets of his oeuvre that have, as yet, received
little critical scrutiny.

THE HOLOCAUST AS SCREEN MEMORY.
Proposals/contributions are invited for a collection of original essays
exploring the claim that the Holocaust has served as a screen memory for
other histories, anxieties, and concerns. For example, some scholars in the
United States have suggested that the Holocaust may serve as a screen memory
for events "closer to home" than the Nazi genocide of the European

American slavery and segregation. Others have identified the Holocaust as a
symbol for vanishing American Jewish identity and community. Still others
link interest in the Holocaust to fears concerning the disappearance of

Recent events have led to reappraisals of religion and spirituality.
This creates an opportunity to collect in one volume the different and
differing perspectives and interpretations of what it means to be
religious or spiritual today. Essays intended for an international
audience are therefore solicited for inclusion in a collection
tentatively entitled "Uniqueness and Versatility: Cross-Cultural
Expressions of Spirituality". The book is to bring together innovative
but readable explorations of religious, mythological, cosmological and
theological texts.

_Modern Fiction Studies_ invites submissions for a special issue on
"Modernism's Jews / Jewish Modernisms" guest edited by Maren Linett. We seek
essays focusing on the period 1890 - 1939 that analyze inscriptions of
Jewish "difference" in fiction, film, and other forms of narrative or
examine the ways Jewish writers and critics negotiated literary and social
terrains. Essays might, for example, trace the aesthetic or political work
accomplished by representations of Jewishness in particular texts; map
intersections among disparate cultural and linguistic contexts; consider
what it means to read prewar texts from our post-Shoah vantage point; or ask
