CFP: [Collections] UPDATE/2nd Call: Collection on _Fight Club_ (12/1/2007)

updated: 
Friday, October 5, 2007 - 11:36pm
Mathias Nilges

We are seeking additional essays of high quality for an edited collection
on _Fight Club_ (novel and film). We received a surprising number of
submissions (close to 100) in response to an earlier call. We have
selected 10 essays of exceptional quality, including work by a number of
renowned scholars.

However, there remain several topics surrounding _Fight Club_ that have
thus far not been adequately addressed. We are therefore soliciting
critical essays that examine the following topics in hopes that the
completed collection will forward a rigorous critical discussion of
_Fight Club_ as a timely and controversial cultural artifact:

historian Peter McNeil posed a series of questions which raise some of
the concerns this volume wishes to address regarding the much neglected
relationship between fashion and furniture. “What is the relationship
between fashion, body, artifact and space? Do developments in the history
