Haunting, Horrible Hunger: Food for Fright

updated: 
Friday, October 21, 2016 - 10:21am
Parlour: A Journal of Literary Criticism and Analysis
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 13, 2017

“[A]nd so I left my fairy godmother, with both her hands on her crutch stick, standing in the midst of the dimly lighted room beside the rotten bride-cake that was hidden in cobwebs” (Great Expectations, 158).

The upcoming issue of Parlour will concentrate on food and consumption culture with an emphasis on the displeasing aspects of appetites: hunger, starvation, gluttony, and pica to name a few. We invite submissions that explore a wide range of approaches to the issue’s theme and the various ways consumption or depravation becomes a “haunting” and “horrible” aspect of humanity.
