Special Issue: Terror/ism and the Postmodern Novel
For an upcoming special issue of Studies in the Novel, I seek critical
studies of novels since the mid-20th century dealing with terror or
terrorism in a postmodern, globalist, biological/nuclear, and/or
high-tech context. All analyses of contemporary novels (or fiction by
contemporary novelists) dealing with the disturbing implications of "the
global village" are welcome, as are theoretical considerations of terror
(and horror?) in the postmodern age, as opposed to their pre-nuclear (or
pre-9/11) conceptualizations. Analyses of novels whose themes include

The United States through the Prism of American and British Popular Music.
For over a century and in modes ranging from hagiography to protest, popular
music has been a prime theatre of observation and representations of the
United States on record, in concert and more generally in the performing
arts. Studying this field, with its senders-artists and their
productions-and its receivers-gatekeepers and audiences-could enable us to
cast a different light on the USA as a source of inspiration, rejection and
attraction for musicians on both sides of the Atlantic in order to explore
certain visions of that country, or at least to examine some of the forces
that shape and/or distort it.
Proposals for a collection of essays on Dr. John Arbuthnot are sought; the
collection, Essays in Criticism on John Arbuthnot, is scheduled to be
published at the beginning of 2004 (February). Essays may deal with any
aspect of Arbuthnot’s (literary) career as an influential critic and
satirist who had strong ties with the Scriblerus club.
Proposals of about 500 words should be sent to the editor, Sandro Jung at
Sandro.Jung_at_btinternet.com by March 2003. Completed essays of about
5000-8000 words are due by 1 December 2003.
Proposals are especially encouraged that deal with the very diverse
correspondence of Arbuthnot.
