Gothic Ecologies in British Culture: From the Eighteenth Century to the Present (Special Issue of the Journal for the Study of British Cultures, 2/2020)
CfP: Essays on Mildred Taylor (Edited Collection)
Editors: Tammy L. Mielke, Sarah Hardstaff and Michelle H. Martin
Since the publication of Song of the Trees in 1975, Mildred D. Taylor’s award-winning Logan family novels have presented complex representations of black characters, family, community, cultural and political life that defy the often stereotypical representations found in children’s literature at large. Yet there has been considerably less critical engagement with Taylor’s work than might be expected. For this anthology we are seeking contributions that examine numerous aspects of Taylor’s work and its wider impact.
This anthology is under advanced contract with University Press of Mississippi.
