COLLECTION OF ESSAYS ON HANIF KUREISHI

Contributors are sought for a collection of original essays on Hanif
Kureishi's writing and filmmaking. The deadline for 500-word abstracts is
10th November 2003. It is intended that the volume should explore each of
the genres within which Kureishi works (novels, plays, screenplays, films,
short stories, essays and music criticism). I am particularly interested
in receiving contributions that take new approaches to his best-known
works and that explore facets of his oeuvre that have, as yet, received
little critical scrutiny.

cultural differences, replacing geographical boundaries with the
weightless flows of global capital, giving new life to ancient forms of
cultural rivalry, bringing all areas of personal, social, and cultural
life within its awesome reach.
