We are seeking contributors for a special journal issue on the topic of "American Literature after Postmodernism."

Much recent critical debate has focused on the aftermath of postmodernism. For many critics the question of 'what comes next' is the most pressing concern regarding contemporary American literature. What, if anything, distinguishes fictions of the very late twentieth and early twenty-first century from those canonical postmodernist fictions produced prior to 1990, and what is the import of these differences? The articles we are collecting for this special issue will address these questions, via critical engagements with exemplary authors and texts.

CFP: European Writers in Exile (edited collection)

Sunday, October 18, 2015 - 10:27pm

Jeff Birkenstein

We seek essays of 5,000 to 6,000 words for an anthology that explores the work of some of the more popular and/or influential European writers in nineteenth, twentieth- and twenty-first-century exile. While we understand the term "exile" to refer typically to European writers who have either been forced to leave their home country or region or chosen self-exile, this term need not be defined so narrowly. That is, various countries in Europe have long been both a refuge for people and writers from many countries and, as a continent, a strife-torn region which has forced many to flee within the continent or beyond it.
