Panel - Renaissance Vegetarianism

The study of early modern food has blossomed in recent years. As scholars have parsed the politics of changing dining practices, the role of recipes in intellectual history, and the growing perception of food ethics as inextricable from social identity, dietary beliefs and habits have begun to be seen as central to early modern studies. One of the most striking dietary trends that spread across Europe in this period, however, remains underexamined: the rise of vegetarianism.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, July 5, 2018

The publisher Rowman & Littlefield has invited me to prepare a proposal for an edited collection tentatively titled The Postgraduate Seminar Essay in Literary Studies: A Guide for Writers and Readers. Although many books exist for undergraduate students on writing and research as well as for postgraduate students working on PhD dissertations, the seminar essay is a peculiarly understudied genre. This volume aims to serve as a resource for both students working on seminar papers and for academic staff who regularly teach postgraduates. The first half of the book will consist of essays providing guidance to postgraduate students working on seminar papers.

Special journal issue - Moon Rise

To mark the 50th anniversary of the first successful manned Moon landing, we invite articles for a special issue, examining how the Moon has been depicted since 1969 in science fiction. As Marjorie Hope Nicolson showed in her classic study of Voyages to the Moon (1948), fantasies of moon flight have been an integral part of world literature since classical times. Since moon flight became a reality, how have these stories changed? From adventure series such as Space 1999 to films such as Duncan Jones’ Moon and novels such as Ian McDonald’s Luna sequence, Earth’s satellite has remained a source of fascination.
