The writing of a literary text is as a retrospective explanation of what is happening in the present and such writing is the deliberate re-creation in actual practice. This present includes social, cultural, religious and political events. The impact of immediate contemporary concerns is served to place a literary text at least partly outside the author’s control. The author responds to a given context of historical and cultural incident that limits his freedom to invent or adapt or explain.

Victorian Review
deadline for submissions:

The Victorian Review invites submissions for its special issue devoted to Trans Victorians. From the Chevalier/Chevalière D’Eon, Fanny and Stella, Dr. James Miranda Barry, and Vernon Lee, to the intersecting identities found in gender diverse side shows, including Madame Clofullia and Julia Pastrana, and the political cross-dressing of the Welsh Rebecca Riots, the Victorian era was populated by all manner of non-binary and gender expansive slippages. At the same time, Richard von Krafft-Ebing’s conflation of queer sexual orientation and trans gender identity and expression became part of the scientific foundation that informed cisnormative and heteronormative standards not only in medicine and the law, but the popular imagination.

 Terrorism in Literature: On Examining a Global Phenomenon

A monographic volume on Terrorism

 

Mahmud Darwich claims: “Nothing, nothing justifies terrorism”. Terrorism, like a virus, is spreading to the whole world. It does not advocate any ideology; it rather involves psychopathological personalities.

Papers are invited to investigate and discuss terrorism in literary texts from different perspectives. What is this phenomenon? Why? What for? For/by Whom? What are its social, political and cultural drawbacks? What happened to humanity? How to stop this plague?

Nella Larsen’s Passing at Ninety

Guest Editor: Donavan L. Ramon, PhD

Assistant Professor of Liberal Studies, Kentucky State University

When Nella Larsen published her second novel Passing in April 1929, the critical reception was mixed. Writing for local papers in New York, some critics found the novel’s conclusion abrupt, ambiguous, and unconvincing. However, Alice Dunbar-Nelson noted that the novel “delights,” while W.E.B. DuBois praised it as a novel “of great moral import.” In his review, DuBois hoped that passing would one day emerge as a “a petty, silly matter of no real importance which another generation will comprehend with great difficulty.”
