Criterion Forum: Haunted Subjects

updated: 
Tuesday, October 16, 2012 - 4:20pm
Brigham Young University

For its 2013 issue, Criterion: A Journal of Literary Criticism anticipates reserving space for up to four essays which explore issues, objects, or persons which, though originating from the repressed past, continue to make themselves "forcibly felt in the present." To provoke thoughts on this topic, Dr. Jayne Elizabeth Lewis, Professor of English at the University of California, Irvine, has provided the following prompt titled "Haunted Subjects." Authors should not attempt to address all of the issues raised by Dr. Lewis; rather, Criterion hopes this prompt will serve as a springboard for creative and well-focused essays on relevant issues and texts.
