Owing to last minute withdrawals by committed authors, the Companion to Victorian Popular Fiction, which will be published by McFarland, is in need of additional contributors. The 150,000 word companion will cover authors, topics, representative texts, and genres. Over 100 scholars, from senior academics to advanced graduate students, have already written short but incisive and insightful cross-referenced entries. A few remain:

Mudie’s Circulating Library [250 words]

Arnold Bennett [250 words]

Catnach broadsides [250 words]

A. L. O. E [100]

Career of Candida [250]

A Modern Amazon [250]

Mary-Angela Dickens [250]

Disability [1250 -- as it appears in popular fiction]

Call for Papers: Arthur Morrison and the East End

 

We seek critical articles for an essay collection on Arthur Morrison and the East End. We welcome essays on a variety of aspects relating to his body of work. 

 

Essays can address his most famous novel A Child of the Jago, but can alternatively focus on his lesser-known novels (particularly The Hole in the Wall and To London Town), his short stories (including those from Tales of Mean Streets), and his journalism. 

 

Broad themes include:

Neil Cocks/The University of Reading, UK
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 12, 2018

We welcome early expressions of interest for this one-day conference will take place at The University Reading, UK in Fall 2018. More details to be posted soon.

Email Dr. Neil Cocks at n.h.cocks@reading.ac.uk

Presentations will be of either 20 or 40 minutes duration. Although the conference is primarily concerned with literature, any approach to Ayn Rand from the Left is welcome.

ABOUT: 

Literary criticism on the Left has ignored Ayn Rand. Why engage work that is clearly so politically irredeemable? Especially when it is also so vulgar, so confused, so…silly?
