Diesis: Footnotes on Literary Identity

Diesis: Footnotes on Literary Identity Call for Articles
Diesis: Footnotes on Literary Identity is now accepting submissions for our third volume! The diesis, or double dagger, indicates a footnote or point of reference, and our third issue will focus on these footnotes or reference points in literary identity. Therefore, we encourage articles concerning any form of literary identity, regardless of genre, movement, subject, or theoretical lens. In this issue, we seek to consider the questions of how and why we interpret, understand, and utilize literary identity, and welcome submissions that take these ideas as their impetus.

THE NINETEENTH CENTURY STUDIES ASSOCIATION

The long nineteenth century set the world on the move. Travel became increasingly important for business and pleasure, for war and peace. At the same time, new forms of moving people arose: the balloon, ships, undergrounds, funiculars, the railroads. Each carried riders to great distances, different locales, and novel pursuits. But motion wasn't purely spatial; new movements arose as well, sweeping the inhabitants of the period into fresh vistas of thought and endeavor. We seek papers and panels that capture the sense of movement at work and at play during the long nineteenth century (1789-1914).
