My colleague Dr. Deborah Poe and I are seeking articles for an edited collection tentatively titled “Between Worlds.” The project is most invested in work which offers social and material opposition to binary ways of thinking about identity and difference. The collection will blend creative prose and criticism like Claudia Rankine’s and Juliana Spahr’s American Women Poets in the 21st Century: Where Lyric Meets Language did with the genre of poetry.

We continue to seek critical essays on the above issues and themes in the short fiction or novels of the following authors:

Chris Abani
Anthony Doerr
Chimanda Ngozi Adichi
Rikki Ducornet
Sherman Alexie
Rebecca Brown
Ana Castillo
Judith Ortiz Cofer
Jaimee Wriston Colbert
Christiana Langenberg
Junot Diaz
Marie Helena Viramontes

250 word abstracts and 1- page CVs due: July 17, 2009

Completed papers due: September 4, 2009

Length of Papers: 2000-2500 words

Abstracts, cvs and completed papers can be sent electronically as a .doc file to: awattley@pace.edu
