 Overview:

The Edinburgh Companion to the Essay provides an overview of the theories, histories, contexts and forms of the essay as well as of current debates around the genre and its extensions. The co-editors seek brief (300-word) proposals for chapters that provide original insights into one or more of these thematic threads. The chapters would explore the essay as a 21st century genre with its own inheritances, experiments, theories, receptions, contexts, and readership(s). The book seeks to expand understandings of the essay in and beyond European and North American literary cultures.

Joseph Conrad and Ethics seeks essays (6000 to 8000 words) that deal with ethics in Conrad’s fiction. 

Since Aristotle's Ethics and Plato’s The Republic, ethics has been a fundamental concern throughout European intellectual history. Over the last three decades, in particular, there has been a growing interest in ethics in the social sciences and humanities, inspired by Emmanuel Levinas, Jacques Derrida, and Jürgen Habermas, to name a few. Ethics is central to Joseph Conrad’s works. It is conveyed both through his thematic concerns and narrative techniques. However, this prominent topic has not yet received the attention it deserves.

Eudora Welty used dialect in her stories to reproduce the full performance of power and identity associated with language. Of her early stories, Welty herself said in 1982, "I love to write dialogue but it’s very hard to prune it and make it sharp and make it advance the plot and reveal the characters—both characters—the one listening and the one talking."
