When William Makepeace Thackeray included pictorial initials and drawings in his 1847 novel Vanity Fair, the author could hardly have anticipated the text's adaptive afterlife in contemporary cinema. While scholars from Stam to Elliott have framed various approaches to the novel/film debate, scholarly attention towards the burgeoning genre of the Victorian cinematic novel has been underexplored. The recent tide of Victorian films, including Burton's Alice in Wonderland, Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes and Fukunaga's Jane Eyre have offered modern viewers a cinematic privileging of canonic novels.

I'm seeking article submissions for a volume of critical essays, which will be published by Cambridge Scholars Press. The collection will focus on twentieth-century female writers' responses to the work of Sigmund Freud with a particular emphasis on alternative models of the psychoanalytic process posed by women. The book will move beyond critiques of Freud and his influence on twentieth century ideas about gender, demonstrating instead the ways women writers have reclaimed agency through the artistic process. With that in mind, the essays selected for publication will address the following topics:
