Contemporary American Literature

A New Book Series from Scarecrow Press

Series Editor: Bob Batchelor

The Scarecrow Press Contemporary American Literature Series is currently accepting proposals for volumes focused on how American literature reflects and shapes our knowledge of our cultural, historical, and socio-economic worlds. In an age when "literature" now encompasses everything from multi-modal texts to timeless classics in the canon, the time is ripe for assessing, reassessing, and refocusing our gaze on the centrality of literature and the literary life in the contemporary world.

Popular culture makes up a large part of our society, from bestsellers, graphic novels and video games, to social media and wildly popular television series and movies. Critical scholars have viewed popular culture as an area of negotiation, in which meaning is both constructed and contested. This conference seeks to address these and other complexities in the study of popular culture.

Aldous Huxley and his Contemporaries

Scheduled to coincide with the centenary of Aldous Huxley's arrival at Balliol College as an undergraduate, this major international conference seeks both to reassess his diverse oeuvre, and to bring new attention to a constellation of writers whose work developed in dialogue with literary modernism. The conference, which incorporates the Fifth International Aldous Huxley Symposium, will look broadly at Huxley's engagements with fellow British and American writers and with some of the key movements of his time.

Stet, the online postgraduate journal of the English Department at King's College London, is now recruiting postgraduate peer-reviewers for a themed issue on the concept of 'Dis/Orientation' in literature of all periods. We are looking for doctoral students who are interested in gaining experience and developing career-relevant skills in the publishing process. As peer reviewer for Stet, you will screen and blind-review a manuscript article and produce a short evaluation report.

Stet, the online postgraduate journal of the English Department at King's College London, is now accepting submissions from current postgraduate students for its third peer-reviewed publication. In this issue, we will present articles from an international pool of students on the concept of dis/orientation. We seek to explore the question of how we are and have been located or dislocated in space, time, and history. Which parts of our personal, social, cultural, geographical, genetic, or technological landscape orient us? What incidents construct our conception of ourselves and our environments?

Kane X. Faucher, Western University
contact email: 

We are currently putting together a prospectus for a book on Deleuze and Guattari on Economy. Ideally, this book of edited essays would be more than an exegesis of what Deleuze and Guattari say about economy and would function as a launchpad for providing a critical blueprint as to what a Deleuzian and/or Guattarian (e.g., anti-semiocapitalism) approach to economic theory would look like. If you are interested in contributing to this volume, please send an abstract of between 250-500 words to kfauche@uwo.ca no later than March 15, 2013.
