Original essays are invited for a collection tentatively entitled “Rhetorics
of Place.”

The editors of this collection believe that the concept of “place” operates
at the crossroads of current social, political, economic, and environmental
issues. As educators we also believe that the exploration of “place”
provides the opportunity for bridging academic knowledge and students’
everyday experiences. With this in mind we encourage submissions from a
range of disciplines and perspectives in the hopes of developing a reader
designed to provide an interdisciplinary overview of the current discussions
concerning “place” for the college classroom.

The Edith Wharton Review invites scholars to submit essays for a special
issue, Edith Wharton and the Provocations of Philosophy. Essays should focus
on considerations of Wharton's extensive engagement with Western philosophy
and with various forms of philosophical writing; on treatments of her
writing in relation to the work of classical, French, or German philosophers
known to have been of interest to her; on her work's relationship to
pragmatism; on Wharton and the question of women and/in philosophy; or on
similar issues. A fuller acknowledgment or presentation of Wharton as an
intellectually and speculatively animated novelist will be one of the chief
objectives of this special issue.
