The second half of the nineteenth century was marked by the emergence of the global women’s movement.Feminism altered the course of literature by challenging those literary conventions that governed the portrayal of women and women's experience at the fin de siècle. Feminist texts explicitly advocated social change and discussed new women’s roles in society. This edited volume Liberating Herself: Emancipationist Writing at the Fin de Siècle (under contract with Cambridge Scholars Publishing) welcomes contributions on any aspect of nineteenth-century literary feminism. Comparative approaches are welcome. By March 8, please submit a 250-300 word abstract and your CV to Dr.

Supernatural Studies is a peer-reviewed journal that promotes rigorous yet accessible scholarship in the growing field of representations of the supernatural. The breadth of “the supernatural” as a category creates the potential for interplay among otherwise disparate individual studies that will ideally produce not only new work but also increased dialogue and new directions of scholarly inquiry. To that end, the editorial board welcomes submissions employing any theoretical perspective or methodological approach and engaging with any period and representations including but not limited to those in literature, film, television, video games, and other cultural texts and artifacts.
