With Swinburne's 2009 centennial approaching, we would like you to consider
contributing to a new collection of essays that will celebrate Swinburne and
Swinburne scholarship. As our main goal in this collection is to explore the
less familiar regions of Swinburne corpus, we invite essays that focus on the
poetry, prose, and criticism published after 1870 and especially during the
Putney period. Essays may address, but are not confined to, the following
issues:
--Swinburne's later formal and generic experimentalism
--treatment and redefinition of Romantic tropes
--manipulation of classical and medieval myth
--mature philosophical and spiritual concerns
--modulating visions of sexuality

Male Sexuality in the Female Mind =96 from Aphra Behn to Annie Proulx

We are putting together a collection of essays that focus on how male=20

objective of the study is to highlight, trace and analyze=20
representations of male desire and sexuality through texts (literary,=20
cinematic, cyber, etc) in order to explore how male sexuality is and=20
has been imagined and re-imagined by women writers. It is hoped and=20
expected that the collection will find a readership both inside and=20

CFP: Disability in African Fiction

=20

Proposals are invited for a panel on the above subject for presentation
at the forthcoming MLA convention in Chicago. While all approaches,
topics and methodologies are welcome, efforts should be made to
critically examine the concept of high or low culture in African
fiction, especially as it relates to disabled characters. The
question, Is There a High or Low Culture in an Oral Society will
hopefully be answered by examining, through selected fictional
portraits, how certain illnesses/handicaps reflect the perceptions of
individuals that are situated in high or low culture.=20

New deadline:

 Rereading the New Criticism

Commentators such as Gerald Graff and Mark Jancovich have noted that, since
the demise in the 1960s of the New Critical hegemony, contemporary critical
discourse has often promoted misunderstandings of New Critical projects.
The image of the New Criticism as ahistorical formalism, they suggest,
misrepresents the New Critics' commitment to practices and epistemologies
distinctive to literature; their engagement with social and historical
issues; and their cultural politics. These recent critiques encourage
rereading the work of the New Critics from a new perspective-one that
maintains critical distance on received ideas about their methods.
