The Schuylkill, a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal founded, edited,
and run by graduate students at Temple University, seeks 5 page,
double-spaced book reviews for its new reviews section. Because we want to
provide an original and important (though sadly neglected) angle to the
discussion of new works, we will publish reviews by graduate students
exclusively. Additionally, the reviews will explicitly address the
reviewer’s impressions of the importance of the work to future research as
well as emerging fields, disciplines, approaches, etc.

To compliment the articles centered around this issue’s special topic of
science, The Schuylkill seeks book reviews of recent scholarship that in
some way deal with science or technology. Below is a list of suggestions,
but the editors are open to other works provided they were published in the
past three years.

A few suggestions (though the possibilities are by no means limited to this

_Victorian Poetry and the Culture of the Heart_ by Kirstie
Blair (2006)

_The Physiology of the Novel: Reading, Neural Science, and
the Form of Victorian Fiction_ by Nicholas Dames (2007)

Radio Modernism: Literature, Ethics, and the BBC, 1922-1938 by Todd Avery

Telegraphic Realism: Victorian Fiction and Other Information Systems by
Richard Menke (2007)

All reviews will be anonymously reviewed by at least two people on our
staff. Please e-mail submissions with author name and contact info on
first page only. In an effort to minimize our environmental impact, copies
of submissions not accepted for publication will be recycled. Please send
reviews as attachments in Word format to The
deadline for the Fall issue is August 1, 2008.

Journal Info:

The Schuylkill is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal founded,
edited, and run by graduate students at Temple University. We are looking
for interdisciplinary, scholarly submissions in the areas of Anglophone
literatures, translation, and comparative literature and seek to publish
the work of graduate students from around the globe.

The journal’s name is a tribute to the Schuylkill River, which runs through
the Philadelphia area in which we work and study. But it is also
significant for the richness of the metaphor: signifying connections and
the incorporation of various elements and sources. We recognize that the
boundaries of English studies are fluid and open to different critical
approaches. For this reason, we especially welcome interdisciplinary
research in graduate student submissions.
