 GUEST EDITORS: DR KYM BRINDLE, DR LAURA EASTLAKE ‘I prophesy that we shall see ghosts and find treasures, and hear mysterious noises –and, oh heavens! What clouds of dust we shall have to go through’ (The Dead Secret) Wilkie Collins’s fiction depicts a rich cabinet of material curiosities. His novels evidence the wealth of objects with which the Victorians surrounded themselves in everyday life. This special issue looks to explore the entanglements between object and subject in Collins’s work. We seek proposals exploring the ways in which aspects of identity in Collins’s novels are articulated through forms of material culture.

Film & History
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, July 1, 2018

On the Western’s frontier, citizens and sociopaths abound—lawmen and outlaws, gamblers and gunmen, cavalry wives and soiled doves, the Indian chiefs and buffalo scouts.  How do these figures—materially or metaphorically—shape the creation, delivery and reception of the American West in film? The "good" citizen in a Western may seem easy to define, but when do some portrayals of citizenship succeed, inspiring audiences, while others backfire?  When might the actions of sociopaths be laudable?
