The peer-reviewed Pennsylvania Literary Journal, http://sites.google.com/site/pennsylvaniajournal, is now accepting submissions for the Summer 2010 Special Issue, "New and Old Historical Perspectives on Literature." In the 1980's Stephen Greenblatt developed "New Historicism." Despite H. Aram Veeser's 1989 anthology, The New Historicism, and numerous other publications in this field, one is left puzzled about why a historical examination of literature is "new." Essays should either strive to define new or old historicism, or should practice a historical evaluation of literature.

Theatrical Ghosting is an edited collection that brings together a diverse group of scholars who work with different time periods and disciplines, and examine dramatic, theatrical, operatic, and other live performance notions of "ghosting." In contrast to ghost as a character, this book explores ghosting as a device that evolves out of specific genres, performance practices, production technologies, contexts, representations of embodiment, presence, absence, etc. Essays that consider "ghosting" in terms of echo, residue, fragment, temporality, or haunting, are also welcome. In addition to an abstract of 100 words or less, please include a brief bio.
Deadline: February 12, 2010

The second decade of the twentieth century saw the publication of two landmark studies that were to change the approach of poets and scholars alike: Jessie Weston's From Ritual to Romance (1920) and James Frazer's The Golden Bough (1922). Both works collected and analyzed a series of legends from different cultures and emerged with a specific pattern of such a ubiquitous nature that it appeared to have the status of an archetype. Neither would be possible at the start of the twenty-first century.
