Friday, October 21, 2016 - 10:21am
Parlour: A Journal of Literary Criticism and Analysis
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 13, 2017

“[A]nd so I left my fairy godmother, with both her hands on her crutch stick, standing in the midst of the dimly lighted room beside the rotten bride-cake that was hidden in cobwebs” (Great Expectations, 158).

The upcoming issue of Parlour will concentrate on food and consumption culture with an emphasis on the displeasing aspects of appetites: hunger, starvation, gluttony, and pica to name a few. We invite submissions that explore a wide range of approaches to the issue’s theme and the various ways consumption or depravation becomes a “haunting” and “horrible” aspect of humanity.

The nineteenth century witnessed critical shifts in the perceptions of time and space. Developments in geology and biology suggested new, expansive notions of space and time, resulting in geological time scales and the concept of deep time. Meanwhile, as the introduction of Greenwich Mean Time standardized railway schedules, rail travel itself rendered the experience of space flexible as journey times decreased. Simultaneously, mathematical developments like non-Euclidean and higher-dimensional geometries initiated new ways of measuring space. How did nineteenth-century literature respond to these changing perceptions and experiences of space and time?

Ancient Egypt in the Modern Imagination

Bonaparte’s invasion of Egypt in 1798 sparked what has come to be known as ‘Egyptomania’, an intense fascination for ancient Egypt that permeated the cultural imagination in the late eighteenth century and beyond. Since this moment, across the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, subsequent ‘waves’ of interest in ancient Egypt have seen the history and iconography of this civilisation drawn upon for all varieties of purposes.

The Wonderful Year 1816 – A bicentenary appraisal

“The value of centenaries and similar observances is that they call attention, not simply to great men, but to what we do with our great men. The anniversary punctuates, so to speak, the scholarly and critical absorption of its subject into society.”
