I am seeking contributions for a volume of critical essays on
representations of death in nineteenth-century US writing. The book is
currently under consideration by Ashgate Press. Essays on the following
topics would be especially welcome:

Representations of death/mourning in postbellum African-American writing or
Native American writing.

Representations of the Civil War in literature and popular culture.
(Suggested topics might include photographic representations of the Civil
War; national mourning and public monuments; the memorialisation of
battle-fields; autobiographical accounts of battle; Civil War fiction and
poetry).

Please submit abstracts of 300-500 words as soon as possible, and not later
than April 5th 2004.
