MFS Special Issue - Inter-imperiality

updated: 
Thursday, April 20, 2017 - 12:28pm
Modern Fiction Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 1, 2017

The editors of MFS seek essays that engage with the concept of inter-imperiality, as developed in the recent PMLA “Theories and Methodologies” cluster (March 2015) and elsewhere. The global turn in literary and cultural studies, although productive, sometimes elides the post/colonial, economic, and other historical or geopolitical conditions of literary-cultural production. We solicit essays that offset this tendency by reading literary-cultural texts within an inter-imperial framework.
