CFP: The Dark Man: Journal of Robert E. Howard Studies (journal)

Mark Hall

THE DARK MAN is an annual scholarly journal devoted to study, discussion,
and criticism of the literary work of Robert Ervin Howard (1906-1936). As a
working premise for the journal, we believe that the breadth, depth, and
significance of Howard's considerable literary achievement and his literary
influences -- both during and since his brief life -- are worthy of serious
attention and richly deserve a scholarly forum. The journal's purpose is to
provide that forum for Howardian and related studies. Arrangements have been
made for the journal to be indexed in the Modern Humanities Research
Association and Modern Language Association's bibliographic indexes.

CFP: Popular Cultures/Cultures of the Popular: 1870-1945 (UK) (9/1/03; various)

Popular Cultures/Cultures of the Popular: 1870-1945
 From the mid-nineteenth century to the mid-twentieth century critical
judgements about popular culture remained extremely diverse; theorists both
celebrated the emergence and preservation of popular cultural forms and
lamented the rise of new market-driven cultural commodities. Perhaps
because of such diversity, there are areas in which a thorough assessment
of the relationships within and between these positions remains to be
done. Popular culture was itself extremely diverse and developments in
critical studies have helped to produce a more detailed picture of the
forms that popular culture took at that time. Recent work in nineteenth
