MASTERS OF MAGIC: ESSAYS ON WIZARDS IN WESTERN CULTURE
Deadline for Proposals: September 15, 2004

In J. R. R. Tolkien's THE LORD OF THE RINGS, the Hobbits are warned, "Do not
meddle in the affairs of wizards"; yet, few readers today, in a time when
the wizard features so prominently in both popular culture and scholarship,
would choose to follow this admonition. Accepting this as a given, proposals
are now being accepted for an essay collection co-edited by Charlotte A. T.
Wulf and Michael A. Torregrossa and investigating the figure of the wizard
in Western culture.
