Digital Defoe: Studies in Defoe & His Contemporaries is now accepting submissions for: Issue 4.1 Fall 2012: Open Topic

For the fall 2012 issue, Digital Defoe: Studies in Defoe & His Contemporaries is accepting submissions in any medium and on any topic of relevance to early eighteenth-century culture.

It is our hope that this issue, like our first three, will feature a range of voices, genres, topics, and approaches, and we encourage submissions by scholars, teachers, and students working at different stages of their careers and from within different academic or professional environments. Please circulate this CFP to your undergraduate and graduate students, to educators you know in secondary and primary education, and to independent scholars. All submissions are reviewed anonymously by at least two external reviewers and are evaluated based on the rigorous standards of the field.

Digital Defoe: Studies in Defoe & His Contemporaries is a peer-reviewed online journal celebrating the works and culture of the eighteenth century and also welcomes multimedia submissions that push the boundaries of scholarship in our field as well as more traditional essays, reviews, notes, and dissertation and conference abstracts. Submissions should be e-mailed to Katherine Ellison (keellis@ilstu.edu) and Holly Faith Nelson (hollyfaithnelson@gmail.com) by April 1, 2012. Please send print manuscripts as Word.doc files following the style guide on our website. For multimedia submissions, please send inquiries about file size and format to Katherine Ellison.
