Call for Papers (Extended): Shirley Jackson
Proposed Collection: Beyond "The Lottery": Critical Approaches to Shirley Jackson
Editor: Matthew B. Prickett, Longwood University
Deadline: October 30, 2009
Beyond "The Lottery" will be a peer-reviewed collection of critical materials examining the life and works of American author Shirley Jackson. The collection will be an opportunity for scholars to draw attention to lesser-known works of Jackson's, and expand on current scholarship in regards to more widely-known works. Ultimately, the collection will provide the author, and her works, with the critical attention that she has been denied until recently.
