New Series Announcement
CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN AND CANADIAN WRITERS
Call for Proposals for a new series of academic monographs
Manchester University Press is proud to announce the launch of a new
series dedicated to the critical appraisal of contemporary North American
writers. The series will reflect the breadth and diversity of writing in
America over the last thirty years, and will provide critical evaluations
of established, emerging and critically neglected novelists. This series
offers an exciting opportunity for authors to explore notions of the
contemporary, and to analyze current and developing modes of
representation with a focus on individual writers and their works.
The Faulkner Journal
Call for Papers: Faulkner and Whiteness
Guest Editor: Jay Watson, University of Mississippi
Faulkner lived and wrote at a time when models of normative and deviant
identity were increasingly racialized, even as models of racial identity
were increasingly biologized. This is one among many reasons why whiteness
in Faulkner--and the whiteness of Faulkner--deserve our critical attention.
This special double issue of The Faulkner Journal welcomes submissions that
problematize the ostensibly unremarkable phenomenon of whiteness in
Faulkner's life and career. Topics could include, but are by no means
limited to, the following:
CALL FOR PAPERS: "Arab-American Feminisms," a special journal issue
to be published in the Spring 2005 edition of the MIT Electronic
Journal for Middle East Studies. http://web.mit.edu/cis/www/mitejmes/
Mind and Human Interaction, an interdisciplinary journal published by
the Center for the Study of Mind and Human Interaction, University of
Virginia, is seeking papers on the theme of "Diaspora Identity".
Whether exiled or immigrating to a new land, whether first or second
generation, an individual psychologically intertwines the home of origin
and the present home in a variety of ways that impact his/her identity.
We would be very interested in learning more about this psychological
process and look forward to receiving your submission.
