[UPDATE] Deadline Approaching for Stet Journal Issue on 'Dis/Orientation'

Friday, November 30, 2012 - 5:55am
King's College London

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?

Dr Marie-Luise Kohlke (Series Editor), Swansea University, UK

We invite contributions on the theme of Neo-Victorian Cities for the fourth volume in Rodopi's Neo-Victorian Series, to be published in 2014. This collection will examine the retrospective presentation of nineteenth-century metropolises in the light of contemporary approaches to urban politics and geopolitics, exploring links between the city and the past's paradoxical 'modernity', now obsolete. If the metropolis is seen as a synecdoche of the world, how does this conception reiterate or contradict nineteenth-century views of the city as a synecdoche of nations and/or Empire?
