CFP: The New Criticism (06/15/07; collection)

I welcome abstracts and full essays for a proposed volume on American
"New Criticism." Essays that deal in an original manner with the history
of this movement (including its impact and legacy in higher education,
its connections to Continental formalist movements and authors, etc.)
are especially encouraged, as are essays that address the theoretical
and philosophical implications of New Critical practice. A good general
description of the proposed book's area would be "history of criticism
and theory." I am in talks with Cambridge Scholars Press regarding this
volume, and will submit a formal proposal after I have selected
contributors.
