Neo-Victorian Villains: Call for Abstracts for Edited Volume

Thursday, July 4, 2013 - 5:46pm
Dr Benjamin Poore, University of York

The Victorian villain of melodramatic stereotype cuts an instantly recognisable figure: cue the top hat and opera cape, the whiskers and moustache, the tremolo fiddle. Yet the narrowing down and simplifying of the Victorian villain is to a large extent a post-Victorian convention, strongly tied to the twentieth century's cultural assumptions of the Victorians as history's 'bad guys' (as Matthew Sweet, Christine L. Krueger and Rohan McWilliam and Kelly Boyd, among others, have noted).

Call for Images: The Power of Poetry in the Modern World (Special Issue)

Wednesday, July 3, 2013 - 1:49pm
South Atlantic Review

In keeping with SAMLA's 2011 special focus, "The Power of Poetry in the Modern World," the 77.1 special issue of South Atlantic Review seeks original images for proposed journal covers that address the ways in which poetry has derived, ceded, and wielded power in a modern world.

Emphasizing an expansive sense of both "modern" and "world," this special issue welcomes submissions (images not essays) that deal with any nationality and any period of print. Images not selected for this special issue will also be considered for forthcoming issues of South Atlantic Review. Photographers will receive a byline in and a copy of the journal for their contribution.
