CFP: [Collections] Essays on Digital Media for Upcoming Collection

Heather Urbanski

For the upcoming essay collection Writing (and) the Digital Generation
(under contract with McFarland), I am soliciting contributions that analyze
the many facets of participatory digital entertainment. The key assumption
of this project is that, contrary to the claim that “no one reads anymore,”
a vast “Digital Generation” actually engages in more rhetorical activity
than perhaps any before. This collection seeks essays that describe and
document these participatory activities and how they are changing how we
see writing, perhaps permanently.

The assumption behind this panel is that a rigorous examination of the
relation between reading and working brings us to the threshold between
“intrinsic” and “extrinsic” criticism. Thematizations of work, for example,
organize our attention within the text even as they direct us outward
toward reference to the leisure that is the precondition for literary
reading itself. Most theories of narrative time depend upon an assumed
homogenization of experience that the reality of work contradicts: social
relations in class society preclude the possibility of phenomenologically
equivalent temporalities across classes, even as “homogeneous, empty time”

Virginia Woolf and the Literary Marketplace

You are invited to contribute to an edited volume entitled “Virginia
Woolf in the Literary Marketplace.” For the first twenty years of her
career, Woolf was primarily a literary journalist who became very
familiar with the world of the literary marketplace. Even after she
became renowned for her fiction, she continued to engage with the
market in its manifold facets: marketing, production, pricing,
copyright issues, technology, readership, reviews, and so on. I am
looking for essays that deal with one or more of these subjects.
