Early Modern Women:

An Interdisciplinary Journal

 

Volume 14.1 (Fall 2019) will feature a forum on

“Early Modern Women’s Mobilities”

 

The scholarship on early modern women has moved far beyond the long-held notion that women remained in the home. Indeed, mobility was a defining feature of many women’s lives.  For this forum, we are interested not only in examples of women’s mobility, but also research that interrogates the far-reaching implications of that mobility for women and considers how it informs our understanding of gender in the early modern world.

The Postgraduate Seminar Essay in Literary Studies: A Guide for Writers and Readers

updated: 
Wednesday, June 27, 2018 - 2:16pm
Rowman and Littlefield
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, July 5, 2018

The publisher Rowman & Littlefield has invited me to prepare a proposal for an edited collection tentatively titled The Postgraduate Seminar Essay in Literary Studies: A Guide for Writers and Readers. Although many books exist for undergraduate students on writing and research as well as for postgraduate students working on PhD dissertations, the seminar essay is a peculiarly understudied genre. This volume aims to serve as a resource for both students working on seminar papers and for academic staff who regularly teach postgraduates. The first half of the book will consist of essays providing guidance to postgraduate students working on seminar papers.

Special journal issue - Moon Rise

Foundation: The International Review of Science Fiction
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 28, 2019

To mark the 50th anniversary of the first successful manned Moon landing, we invite articles for a special issue, examining how the Moon has been depicted since 1969 in science fiction. As Marjorie Hope Nicolson showed in her classic study of Voyages to the Moon (1948), fantasies of moon flight have been an integral part of world literature since classical times. Since moon flight became a reality, how have these stories changed? From adventure series such as Space 1999 to films such as Duncan Jones’ Moon and novels such as Ian McDonald’s Luna sequence, Earth’s satellite has remained a source of fascination.
