     Nineteenth-Century Prose invites submissions for a special issue on writing
by T. B. Macaulay, scheduled for fall, 2006.

We hope for a wide range of topics and approaches regarding particular essays by
Macaulay, or the Critical and Historical Essays as a corpus, and/or his History
of England. His parliamentary and bureaucratic

texts, such as those concerning India, will also be considered suitable subject
matter.

The perspectives of literary study, history, historiography, and the philosophy
of history are all welcome. So are submissions employing interdisciplinary
approaches or discussing Macaulay texts in relation to interdisciplinary issues.
Essays in cultural studies, including colonial and postcolonial studies, are
also encouraged as promising

for examination of this writer who was so widely read during his lifetime and on
through the long nineteenth-century.

     Inquiries, proposals, and submissions should be sent by e-mail to the guest
editor, Thomas Gillcrist, at Reed College (thomas.gillcrist_at_reed.edu). Proposals
(1-3 pages) are recommended and should be received as soon as practical.
Completed essays are due by 1 September 2005 and normally should not exceed 9500
words. Submissions must be sent as attachments in MS Word. Chicago or MLA format
is recommended. In any event, all text, including notes and indented quotes,
should be double spaced throughout. Notes should be created in a separate file
with superscripts NOT created through automatic computer formatting. Submissions
should be accompanied by a one-paragraph abstract and a two-or three- sentence
vita.
