Andrew Monnickendam and Aránzazu Usandizaga, editors of Back to Peace: Reconciliation and Retribution in the Postwar Period (2007), a Choice Outstanding Academic Title, are looking for contributions for a project entitled Embattled Desires. The volume aims to show how the literary expression of desire is modified and gradually expanded as a result of the political and ethical disruption brought about by conflict. War creates a space in which communal values become simultaneously enforced and eroded in a radical way, exacerbating the instabilities of individual identity.
