CFP: NINETEENTH-CENTURY AMERICAN WOMEN WRITING ABOUT ITALY
We are looking for articles to complete a collection of scholarly papers
discussing fictional works dealing with Italy written by American women in
the long Nineteenth century. The volume will be a part of a book series
that focuses on the American presence in Italy in the Nineteenth century.
The collection already has contributions on Edith Wharton and Constance
The volume will contain five or six articles, each of them about 20 pages
long. We welcome papers concerning single authors. The papers should
include some biographical information about the authorâ€”mainly about her
stay in Italyâ€”but the main focus should be on the analysis of the fictional
work(s) set in Italy. Of particular interest is how the image of Italy is
created and what function Italy has in the selected text(s). Publication is
projected for September 2009.
Please send a one-page abstract to Dr. Sirpa Salenius or Dr. Virginia
Ricard no later than 15 November 2008. Contributions should be in Word
format and should be sent by email to: salenius_at_libero.it and
virginia.ricard_at_u-bordeaux3.fr. General inquires are welcome.
