This timely collection will concern the representation and construction of
masculinities and how they interact with cultural difference and the
project of empire in England/Britain or in English/British areas of global
interests. It is envisaged that the collection may range across (but is not
limited to) the following topics: colonial spaces; women, men and sex;
Black Atlantic voices; literary discourses of empire and gender; cultural
difference in the contact zone; difference and empire at ‘home’;
homoeroticism and male friendship; slaves, slavers and the slave trade;
representations / discourses of landscape. One of this collection’s
strength will be in its interdisciplinary nature, and contributions will be
sought not only from literature and history, but also those working across
the disciplinary boundaries of literature, history, the arts, and cultural
studies.

The deadline for submitting a proposal is Friday March 21st 2008.
NOTE NEW DEADLINE
