Sideways in Time: Alternate History and Counterfactual Narratives
Following a highly successful two day international conference on alternate history held at the University of Liverpool and organised in conjunction with Lancaster University, the conference organisers are now seeking to supplement extended conference papers with other work in order to publish an essay collection which represents the diversity and depth of alternate history and counterfactual narrative scholarship.
This edited volume marking the centennial of Sholem Aleykhem's death (May 1916), will explore the writer's vast contributions to Yiddish literature through comparison with authors of other national literatures. The aim of the collection is to analyze the work of this foundational Yiddish writer in comparative context in order to bring to light hitherto unexplored aspects of his achievements. Often called "the Jewish Mark Twain" – due to similar writing style and use of pen name – Sholem Aleykhem's favorite writers spanned the spectrum of world literature – among them: Sterne, Dickens, Twain, Tolstoy and Gorky.

In almost a reactionary response to New Criticism and a development from Historicism, literary researchers are using archival research more and more to develop textual analysis. Whether this research is more historically based or is textual to the point of analysing printing ink and the construction of a text, special collections, museum, and archives are considered a valuable resource. Even in the abstract, the idea of 'the' archive, while being embraced is simultaneously being challenged both for its exclusions and its very definition. How has the/an archive or the very idea of an archive affected/enhanced your own work?
This issue aims to elicit discussions about the literary and cultural productions that have emerged from the process of colonization and post-colonial experience in English-speaking countries, as well as the expansion of these historical experiences through cross-cultural dialogues. It is, therefore, the investigation of the transits of literary, artistic, and cultural repertoires in English, aiming to comprehend the networks and flows of critical or theoretical references about these productions in the various stages of the colonization and post-colonial period.
