CFP: Black Mountain College Studies special volume on Hilda Morley (online peer-reviewed journal; deadline 8/15/2015).

full name / name of organization: 
Black Mountain College Studies Journal (Blake Hobby, Executive Editor; Chris Wilson Simpkins, Guest Editor Slated for publication in late fall of 2015, this volume of BMCS will contain scholarly essays, poems, artworks, and other forms of media that explore Hilda Morley’s relationship to Black Mountain College. As much of Morley’s work was published late in life or posthumously, contributors need not limit themselves to the years she was at BMC and should feel free to draw upon her entire life and oeuvre. Hilda Morley lived and taught at Black Mountain College, befriended Robert Creeley and Denise Levertov, worked and socialized with Charles Olson, and published in the Black Mountain Review. She came to Black Mountain as a working poet and remained a prize-winning writer until her death in 1998. Yet, critics and historians rarely include Morley in their critical conversations; little Morley scholarship exists. Although all Hilda Morley-related submissions will be considered, the editors especially welcome scholarship that examines her life and works in light of Black Mountain College. Other possible topics include: Morley and H.D.; critical regionalism and/or transnational context; twentieth-century publishing culture and poetic community; the influence of Dewey’s aesthetics; intersectional feminist criticism; comparative analyses with contemporaneous writers, especially women poets. These topics are not intended to be proscriptive but suggestive of possibilities worthy of investigation. Deadline: Completed, polished papers should be submitted by 8/15/2015. Length limit: 10,000 words in MLA format. Citing: Use MLA parenthetical citations, avoid footnotes, and include a list of works cited. If absolutely necessary, include endnotes but remember that BMCS is an online, peer-reviewed journal; scrolling between endnotes and text makes for difficult web reading. Send Word files, other digital art forms, and any questions or concerns via as email to: Blake Hobby (blake.hobby@gmail.com) Executive Editor, Black Mountain College Studies (http://blackmountaincollegestudies.org/wp/) )
