I am seeking submissions to complete a volume on women, representation
and space in 19th and 20th century literature written in English. While
the main focus of the volume is women's metaphorical appropriation and
subvertion of public and private spaces since the beginning of the 19th
century until today, this call for papers in particular seeks essays on
contemporary women writers appropriating, negotiating and/or
deconstructing public/private spaces. I am especially interested in
essays that question the simplistic binary divide between public and
private spaces, and essays dealing with the trope of the flâneuse in the
postmodern city. Proposals on little explored authors such as Tama

Using the pioneering work of Joseph Bristow¹s Effeminate England and Alan

the gendering of male homosexuality in post-Oscar Wilde, post-Labouchére
amendment, post-Cleveland Street scandal, post-Boulton and Park scandal
British literature (1895-2005). The confluence of the above events
solidified the cultural gendering of the male homosexual as effeminate, a

We are currently editing a special issue of _Victorian Poetry_, scheduled for publication in 2006, on Tractarian poetry and poetics and its influence on Victorian literature and religion. Due to the unavoidable withdrawal of one of our contributors, we are interested in hearing from anyone who has material on this topic which could be quickly turned into a high-quality article. The article (c.6000 words) would have to be completed by the end of July at the latest, and preferably earlier.

Comitini, Patricia Prof.

We're soliciting papers for a volume tentatively titled Literature and
the Addicted Subject, 1700-Present. This volume will examine how the
post-Romantic conception of literature constructs both the possibility
and our understanding of addiction. While there are collections and
books that discuss the addictions of authors or representations of
addiction, the focus of this book is substantially different: it seeks

particular ideological and cultural preconditions. Thus, we do not

thing at all times. Addiction needs particular historical preconditions:
