We seek essays that explore the intersection of literature and politics. This session is open topic. The deadline has been extended to April 6.
We are seeking 500-word proposals for submissions to a collection of essays exploring the representation of the Anthropocene within modernist literature and culture. As a whole, the volume examines the emerging and complex relationship between Anglo-American modernism and its geological, climatological, and deep historical contexts, as it is articulated in a range of literary texts, movements, and expressions in the first half of the twentieth century.

In its aesthetic and political senses, "collaboration" has a twofold, seemingly contradictory meaning. On the one hand, collaboration names a creative and democratically communicative sharing between individuals, disciplines, traditions, etc. Yet, on the other hand, this positive sense is countered by negative connotations of traitorous and nefarious "collaborationism." While the positive sense of collaboration has found academic credibility in its interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary guises, the negative connotations of collaboration refer us to traditions of appropriation, marginalization, and usurpation.
albeit invites scholarly articles, detailed lesson plans, book reviews, creative pieces, and nonfiction essays exploring the theme of "War."
Topics for this issue can include, but are not limited to:
Terry Pratchett is one of the UK's most brilliant fantasy writers and was an inveterate humourist with a knack of creating unforgettable characters. Writing with verve, poignancy and daring, Pratchett is known for his signature style as much as for the bold criticism deftly embedded in his comedic writing. In honour of Sir Terry, gender forum will publish a special issue dedicated to him and his works.
Margaret Atwood Studies, the journal of The Margaret Atwood Society, invites submissions on a rolling basis from both members and nonmembers. Essays submitted must be the original work of the author(s) and neither published nor under consideration for publication elsewhere.

To facilitate blind review, submissions should include a cover sheet with contact information and include no references to authorship in the essay. Submit via email as an attachment to Dr. Karma Waltonen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
