Journal of Literature and Trauma Studies

‘Horror is beyond the reach of psychology’ Adorno, Minima Moralia, p. 164

The Journal of Literature and Trauma Studies is a bi-annual international peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the study of the relationship between literature and trauma.
For our inaugural issue, we welcome submissions that explore the connection between trauma and the tragic in all its literary and theoretical aspects.
These may include:
• theories of the tragic;
• tragedy and memory;
• tragedy and modernity;
• the end of tragedy;
• tragedy and horror;
• tragedy and mourning;
• tragedy, testimony, and reconciliation.

These categories are broadly conceived.

We would particularly welcome articles that address the following:
• Trauma beyond tragic representation: the obscene
• The ethical and the tragic: victim and martyr
• The tragic after Beckett

Articles should be submitted in electronic format (Word Document, Times New Roman, double-spaced, font 12) to david.miller2@stir.ac.uk and L.Aiello@sheffield.ac.uk. Submissions should be in English, between 6000 and 8000 words. The Journal will be published in hard copy by University of Nebraska Press.

Deadline for submissions: End of July 2011
