journal College Literature on:

"Intersections of Literature and Linguistics"

=20

College Literature is a quarterly journal of scholarly criticism =
dedicated to serving the needs of college/university teachers by =
providing them with access to innovative ways of studying and teaching =
new bodies of literature and experiencing old literatures in new ways. =
It encourages a variety of approaches to textual analysis and criticism =
(including political, feminist, and poststructuralist) on English, =
American, and European literature in addition to Eastern literatures, =
minority and Third World literatures, oral literature, and =
interdisciplinary/comparative studies (such as anthropology and =
literature, computers and literature, literature and film etc.).

=20

This special issue seeks to revaluate the co-operation of linguistics =
and literature in light of its contribution to the current debate around =
the future of English in particular, and the humanities in general. How =
can the interdisciplinary co-operation of literary scholars and =
linguists provide solutions to what cultural pessimists consider the =
malaise of the traditional humanities? We are especially interested in =
original, close readings of literature with the aid of linguistic =
methodology (e.g. corpus linguistics), as well as more theoretical =
essays on, for instance, the possibilities and perils of =
cross-disciplinary co-operation and the philosophy and pedagogy of =
integrated approaches.=20

=20

Submissions range from 8,000 - 10,000 words and must follow The Chicago =
Manual of Style, 14th ed. (author-date citation). Please send essays in =
duplicate, along with a 100 word abstract, to gerbig_at_uni-trier.de

Extended deadline for submissions: 15 April 2004
