MFS Special Issue - Inter-imperiality

updated: 
Wednesday, May 3, 2017 - 2:38pm
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.

Collection of Essays on Poe and Psychology

updated: 
Sunday, May 21, 2017 - 6:13pm
Mary Beth Evans
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, December 20, 2017

Poe’s understanding of the Human mind is one of the most complex structures in the American canon. It is difficult to understand each brain process as every human being possesses his/her own distinguished thought patterns with dissimilar complexity levels. A person’s behaviour deeply influences the  psyche, which ultimately alters into a habit by becoming entrenched into a person’s disposition. Today, the field of psychology tries to comprehend everything a mind is able to produce. On the other hand, years before Psychology became a field of thought and practiced professionally, a number of American authors threw a spotlight on the apparatus of the mind in their works.
