Edited Collection: Challenger Unbound (Revaluating Arthur Conan Doyle's Professor Challenger Narratives)

Dr. Jonathan Cranfield (University of Kent) and Prof. Helene Machinal (University of Brest)

Habitually characterised as a late-appearing variant upon the Victorian Quest Romance, Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Lost World" (1912) in fact marked the beginning of the author's prolonged investigation of science, ideology and belief under the inhibiting constraints of early twentieth-century modernity. The narratives span from 1912 to 1929 and this new collection will be dedicated to re-evaluating the narratives, their author, the wider culture that he inhabited and the legacy of his work for the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. We are interested in work that treats the texts either directly or tangentially through other aspects of Conan Doyle's life and thought.
