Publication decisions will be made by September 1st
In many modern and contemporary narrative acts of psychological and physical violence among women, violence has been interpreted and presented in terms of Freudian envy, spaces for male pleasure, negotiating conflicts in a male world, biological determinism (the over protective mother), or as non-existent, i.e. created by males (women are peacemakers and nurturers, neither inherently violent nor evil) etc.

Texas Issue

The Texas Observer calls Texas "the strangest state in the Union." It
is also in many ways America's most significant state: for better or
worse the Texas models for government, business, religion, and education
have dominated the nation in recent years. Why? Where did all
this.this.strangeness.weirdness.power.come from? While it may appear
from a distance that Texas is a monolithic entity, it is not; rather, it
is a collection of constantly interacting and often warring individuals,
cultures, and geographies. What the are the stories, the poems, the
songs that live and lurk beneath the surface of Texas?

Comitini, Patricia Prof.

We're soliciting papers for a volume tentatively titled Literature and
the Addicted Subject, 1700-Present. This volume will examine how the
post-Romantic conception of literature constructs both the possibility
and our understanding of addiction. While there are collections and
books that discuss the addictions of authors or representations of
addiction, the focus of this book is substantially different: it seeks
to examine how addiction is a historical phenomenon that is enabled by
particular ideological and cultural preconditions. Thus, we do not
assume addiction's existence prima facie, and do not assume it is one
thing at all times. Addiction needs particular historical preconditions:
