Call for paper: Aletria v. 28, n.3 (2018) – Early Modern English Literature

Early modern English authors (c. 1453-1789) wrote in a period of unprecedented national and international political, cultural, social, religious, and scientific changes. Literature in English across a range of traditional and alternative genres reflected, resisted, and redefined these developments. We invite papers that identify and analyse the many forms of evidence of the literary engagement with transformative issues, events, and axes within and outside of the British Isles.

Editors of the number: Elizabeth Sauer (Brock University, Canadá) and Luiz Fernando Ferreira Sá (UFMG)

Ariel 50th Anniversary Special Issue

Thursday, May 3, 2018 - 4:26pm
Ariel: a Review of International English Literature
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, August 1, 2018

Ariel: a Review of International English Literature seeks proposals for publication in its 50th Anniversary Special Issue, slated for publication in 2020. This special issue will unpack and explore the tensions and interrelationships between postcolonial studies and Indigenous studies. When Bill Ashcroft, Gareth Griffiths, and Helen Tiffin published The Empire Writes Back (1989), the ensuing recognition of Canada and the United States as products of imperialism and colonization necessarily provoked questions about the people who preceded settlers. Indigenous literary studies became recognized as a necessary missing piece of those conversations.
