deadline for submissions:

In February 2020, Penguin Random House will publish for the first time Claude McKay’s never-released revolutionary novel, Romance in Marseille, written circa 1929-1933, edited by Gary Holcomb (Ohio U) and William J. Maxwell (Washington U in St. Louis). A “Black Spine” series Penguin Classics paperback, Romance in Marseille will be the publisher’s Black History Month selection and centerpiece of the 2020 catalogue. McKay’s late-Harlem Renaissance novel lends itself to several contemporary critical concerns: queer, disability, proletarian, black transnational, and New Modernist studies among them.

 The Elizabeth Bowen Society is delighted to announce its second international conference. Recent years have seen a growing and sustained interest in Bowen’s work, which can be read through a wide variety of literary approaches.  No longer thought of as a writer on the margins of Bloomsbury, Bowen rightly occupies a central place in our understanding of both the twentieth century and twentieth-century literature.
