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.

For further information or to express interest, please contact us at the email addresses below.

CFP: Literature and the Addicted Subject (11/15/05; collection)

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
to examine how addiction is a historical phenomenon that is enabled by
particular ideological and cultural preconditions. Thus, we do not
assume addiction's existence prima facie, and do not assume it is one
thing at all times. Addiction needs particular historical preconditions:

The Bible in the Nineteenth Century:
The Word and its Re-Wordings in British Literature and Thought

The Bible has played a significant part in British culture since the
Reformation. It has been a major reference not only in the field of
religious experience but also, more broadly, in artistic expression and
intellectual reflection. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, the
Evangelical Revival placed the Scriptures at the heart of religious
practices and certain Romantics reasserted the importance of the Bible by
offering new readings.

The Bible in the Nineteenth Century: the Word and its Re-Wordings in Bristish Literature and Thought:

 

The Bible has played a significant part in British culture since the Reformation. It has been a major reference not only in the field of religious experience but also, more broadly, in artistic expression and intellectual reflection. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, the Evangelical Revival thus placed the Scriptures at the heart of religious practices and certain Romantics reasserted the importance of the Bible in renewing its reading.

8 April 2005

Nineteenth-Century Prose invites submissions for a special issue on Matthew
Arnold. We encourage a wide range of topics focusing on prose works by
Arnold as well as topics related to broader issues regarding Arnold's
influence on literature (including individual authors), literary and
cultural studies, religious studies, and education. Arnold's current
standing in cultural studies or other academic fields is of particular
interest. Interdisciplinary approaches are welcomed. Submissions which
discuss both Arnold's poetry and prose are appropriate, but not those which
focus exclusively on poetry.
