Call for Essays: Critical Collection in English Studies

Essays are invited for a collection tentatively entitled, Interdisciplinarity,
Fusion, and Reform: New and Critical Inquiries into English Studies.

This collection examines the field of English as it is conceived of by James
Berlin, Michael Berube, Sharon Crowley, Gerald Graff, Stephen North et. al,
Robert Scholes, etc. Within this conversation, English Studies is “a new
disciplinary enterprise” (North), one that encourages “a clash of paradigms,
frameworks, languages, and methodologies” (Waller) in the field of English, and
one that also generates interdisciplinarity, “fusion” (North), and integration
of English’s sub-disciplines.

Disclosing Intertextualities: The Stories, Plays and Novels of Susan Glaspell

A collection of essays to be edited by Martha Carpentier and Barbara Ozieblo.
We are looking for 20-25 page papers that:
1. broaden understanding of what constitutes Susan Glaspell's oeuvre,
bridging her work in different genre, particularly the plays to novels; or
2. contextualize Glaspell within major literary, social or political
movements of her time, or establish her influence on or by major literary
figures.

Papers should explore new territory beyond _Trifles_ and "Jury of Her Peers."

(This is an update of and extension of deadline for the call for papers
originally posted on April 9. Please read that posting or contact me for more
details about the collection.)

My apologies to those who may have submitted abstracts in the past few weeks
for the collection MURDER AND THE OTHER: INVESTIGATING RACIAL AND RELIGIOUS
OTHERNESS IN CONTEMPORARY BRITISH DETECTIVE FICTION (post 1980). Our
university network problems have resulted in faculty members not receiving some
messages. Most messages have made it to us, but some have slipped through (and
senders were not made aware of the fact that their messages never made it to
the recipient).

Roth, Laurence

Modern Language Studies, the journal of the Northeast Modern Language
Association, has transferred operations to Susquehanna University where the
Departments of English, Modern Languages, and Art will collaborate on its
editing and redesign. Articles and reviews in MLS have always reflected the
eclectic interests and the strong research profiles of NEMLA members, and
one of our primary goals in redesigning the journal is to expand the format
so that it provides a broad range of publishing opportunities. We are
therefore adding, and seeking submissions for two new sections to the
journal:
