Call for Papers: The Male Body in Medicine and Literature (ed. by Greta Depledge and Andrew Mangham)

Following the success of the recent collection The Female Body in Medicine and Literature (LUP 2011) Liverpool University Press have commissioned a companion volume entitled The Male Body in Medicine and Literature. This new collection will provide interdisciplinary essays that will explore the complex intersections between literature and the medical treatment of the male body. We wish to consider the wider cultural ramifications of the representation of the male body, health, sickness, masculinity and 'manhood' in order to further our understanding of gender studies, gender politics, science, medicine and literature.
