Call for Papers
On Metaphor (Literary Theory).
---> Date of Publication: September 2009
---> Date of Colloquium: July 2009 (Berlin)
---> Submissions beginning NOW, ending: January, 5th 2009 (deadline)
We welcome 15 essays of interest to those concerned with the study of 'the
metaphor' from the perspective of literary theory. We welcome papers
examining the subject based on foregrounded theoretical assumptions
illustrating the propositions with examples from fictional works.
The collection of essays will be published with a major English publishing
house, accompanied by a colloquium (Berlin in July 2009). All authors who
are decided to be included in the volume will be invited to participate in
the event. All expanses regarding flights, accommodation and full board
will be financed by the organizers.
Articles of less than c. 6,000 are not considered for publication. The word
count includes foot notes but excludes works-cited lists and translations,
which should accompany foreign language quotations.
Each article submitted is send to two reviewers in international
departments of literary theory. Articles recommended by these readers are
then sent to the members of the editorial board, who meet in late May 2009
to make final decisions. Until a final decision is reached, the author's
name is not made known to consultant readers and the editorial board.
Because the submission of an article simultaneously to more than one
refereed project can result in duplication of the demanding task of
reviewing the manuscript, it is our policy not to review articles that are
under consideration elsewhere.
Submissions, prepared according to the "MLA Style", should be sent
