CFP: Ambrose Bierce and his Contemporaries (4/15/06; e-journal and hypermedia project)
The Ambrose Bierce Project (http://www.ambrosebierce.org) is a hypermedia project and peer-reviewed e-journal hosted by Penn State University. To prepare for the second issue of the journal (fall 2006), we are now seeking essays and literary briefs about the writings of Ambrose Bierce and his contemporaries. Submissions will be reviewed by members of the ABP advisory board, a collection of leading Bierce scholars and Americanists.
Literary briefs will offer a critical perspective on a *single* Bierce story or work of nonfiction prose. Briefs should not exceed 2,000 words, but should include scholarly notes. Deadline: 5/1/06.
Full essays should fall between 5,000 and 12,000 words. We welcome original essays relating to the life and works of Ambrose Bierce, his contemporaries, and United States history and culture of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Interdisciplinary studies are encouraged. Deadline for abstracts (with short CV): 4/15/06.
Please submit queries, abstracts, completed briefs, and book review proposals to the editor, Craig A. Warren, at bierce_at_psu.edu.
