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.

Ultimately, the collection will provide the author, and her works, with the critical attention that she has been denied until recently.

ON NOT LOOKING: Essays on Images and Viewers

updated: 
Thursday, October 8, 2009 - 9:29am
Frances Guerin, Ruhr University, Bochum

Submissions are invited for an edited book with the working title On Not Looking:
Essays on Images and Viewers. Contemporary experience presents us with a
contradiction:  while we are at a historical moment when images have never been so
readily available and circulated, we increasingly "don't look" at images. The
collection of essays will explore the myriad ways that not looking at images — as
opposed to not seeing — is manifest in our burgeoning image culture today.
Contributions are sought that address practices and representations of "not looking,"
"turning away," and other manifestations of physical and mental distraction from
material images.

The Booker Prize and India

updated: 
Wednesday, October 7, 2009 - 4:14am
Dr.Nilanshu Kumar Agarwal

A full-length novel written by a citizen of the Commonwealth, the Republic of Ireland or Zimbabwe is eligible for the Booker Prize. The reputation of the prize is sure to transform the fortunes of the author who receives it. This prestigious prize has been won by four Indians—Salman Rushdie (Midnight's Children, 1981), Arundhati Roy (The God of Small Things, 1997), Kiran Desai (The Inheritance of Loss, 2006) and Aravind Adiga (The White Tiger, 2008). With the award of this prize to Indians, Indian Writing in English (IWE) has become a force to be reckoned with. The present anthology of critical essays proposes to analyse  the above  Booker-winning novels and the general subject of the Booker and India.
