Updated Call for Papers, Doris Lessing Studies 2018: Special Topic & Open Topic

 Special topic

“Alternative Domesticities in the Works of Doris Lessing.” 

Following Jenni Diski’s 2016 memoir, In Gratitude, we invite new readings of Lessing’s portrayals of non-biological families, non-normative modes of affiliation and dependence, and unconventional households and genealogies.

 Open topic

 Our refereed journal, published yearly online, invites submissions on any topic of Doris Lessing’s work. Manuscripts, which should follow the current MLA handbook for style, must be typed, double-spaced, and between twelve and eighteen pages in length. Manuscripts in Microsoft Word should be submitted to the editor, Robin Visel (rvisel@gmail.com) as email attachments. Endnotes should be indicated by superscript numbers manually added within the text and typed in at the end of the article. Contributors may also submit short essays, notes, reviews, news, bibliographies, announcements, and reports of classroom experiences.

 Deadline: June 15, 2018
