This book project aims to examine the existence of dogma in literature and some cult texts, and how dogmas in literature are conveyed to various audiences as a mission by some literary readers, experts and academics. The questions leading up to the volume are varied and their answers require lengthy examination and interpretation. So, this project investigates; Is literature dogmatic? What about literary theories? Can they be dogmatic, too? The answers to these questions are open to clarification, but the responses can also initiate an extensive discussion and manifestation. However, above all, literature does have an aspect that drags the readers, habitually burying them in its pages, and blindly attaching them to itself.

deadline for submissions:

Current graduate students finishing their PhD program and future incoming cohorts, for example, will face new difficulties. Will funding continue to be available? Will campuses remain open, specifically student housing? Will campuses improve the experiences of disabled and marginalized groups so that campus services are not only theoretically accessible to all graduate students but also equitably distributed? How has COVID impacted you and how do you navigate graduate school?
