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.

This interdisciplinary international conference, held in Cardiff, the city of Roald Dahl's birth and childhood, in his centenary year (16th-18th June 2016), will give further impetus to the substantial critical attention devoted to the author's work by seeking new ways of understanding his achievement and place in twentieth- and twenty-first-century culture, broadly considered. The emphasis will be on defamiliarizing Dahl in the very act of bringing him 'home'.
