The OED has to give some three pages to defining the word ROMANCE that, with all of its rich history, is at the centre of this Mosaic call for papers. We invite innovative interdisciplinary literary and critical submissions for a special issue we are planning on this theme. For this issue, our interests include, but are not limited to, the following: "the Romantics," who have undergone a renascence of late; the French novel, the roman; romantic fiction; Romanticism; the state of the love story in literature and/or film; and the figure of the "romantic."

If you would like to contribute an essay for review, please refer to our Guidelines for New Submissions at www.umanitoba.ca/mosaic/submit.
