This is an amendment to the CFP posted about three months ago.

The December 2009 issue of the Journal of Contemporary Literature will be devoted not only to articles on contemporary Indian novelists, including novelists of the Indian diaspora, but also to articles on contemporary Chinese novelists, including novelists of the Chinese diaspora. The issue will be expanded to accommodate this expanded focus, which will make the issue contents more marketable as a collection of essays.

Articles should be between 3,000 and 8,000 words, including notes. Documentation should follow MLA guidelines. Analyses of individual works, thematic surveys of multiple works, as well as comparative treatments are welcome.

The issue will be refereed. The deadline for submissions remains September 30, 2009. Articles should be submitted as Word attachments to the issue editor, Martin Kich, at martin.kich@wright.edu Inquiries are welcome.

Dwivedi, Chairman of the Department of English, Taiz University, Yemen, and Prof. Allesandro Monti, Chairman, Department of Oriental Studies, Turin University, Italy.
