NEW SERIES – HORROR STUDIES
JNT publishes theoretically sophisticated essays that examine narrative from a host of critical perspectives. Of particular interest are history and narrative; cultural studies and popular culture; discourses of class, gender, sexuality, race, nationality, subalternity, and ethnicity; film theory, queer theory, and media studies; new historical, poststructural, or global approaches to narrative forms (literary or otherwise); along with essays that span or subvert epistemic and disciplinary boundaries. JNT is multi-genre, multi-period, multi-national.
Is the historical novel a literary genre in the formal sense or is the term merely a placeholder for fictions about the past? This proposed Special Session seeks papers exploring how we identify and evaluate the historical novel in light of recent work by scholars such as Perry Anderson, Ian Baucom, Fredric Jameson, Rachel Teukolsky and others. 300-word abstract due by 1 March 2016.
