We are seeking three strong essays to round out an edited book
collection as described below. We would need a one-page abstract by

Due to last-minute cancellations, we seek 2-3 essays for a collection of
essays on the representation of the erotic/eroticism in American cultural

all suggestions, we particularly encourage prospective authors to submit
provocative readings of canonical texts and contemporary US popular culture.

Since we will only consider completed work, essays (ca. 5,000 words; MLA
style) should be accompanied with a short bio and sent to both editors as
soon as possible, but no later than 2 November 2003.
