The Fiction of Colum McCann - Essay Collection

Deadline for Submissions - 30 June 2008


Submissions are invited for an edited collection of essays on the Irish writer Colum McCann. McCann has long been touted as one of the leading Irish writers of his generation and this collection seeks to address the relative, and surprising, absence of any critical engagement with McCann's literary fiction. The editors are seeking essays on any and all of McCann's published work in order to reflect the variety and quality of his achievement. This naturally means that a limited number of essays on any one text can be accepted. We are open to discussions of McCann's work on any theme, theoretical prism, or close-reading strategy.

Queries and submissions should be directed to either Dr Eóin Flannery - , or Dr Susan Cahill -

Essays should not exceed 7500 words and should comply with the MLA referencing system.

Full submissions should be submitted by 30 June 2008.
