Submissions are now open for the 2020-2021 issue of the Digital Literature Review, “Food Matters in Literature and Culture.” We welcome original, engaging submissions that consider representations of food in literature, film, television, or popular culture. In particular, we are interested in scholarly essays that consider food as a vehicle for exploring issues of inequity and empowerment, including but not limited to race, gender, class, ability, sexuality, and nationality.

Cities and Fantasy: Urban Imaginary Across Cultures, 1830–1930 (Edited Volume)

updated:

Dr. Klaudia Lee and Dr. Sharin Schroeder
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 15, 2021

The long nineteenth century witnessed the rapid expansion and modernization of cities around the globe. It is often also heralded, by critics working with Anglo-American literature, at least, as the starting point for studies of the fantastic. Nonetheless, despite the claims of critics such as Rosemary Jackson and Stephen Prickett that modern fantasy is, in part, a reaction to industrialization,[1] few projects have explored nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century fantasies’ engagement with the urban, and fewer still have attempted to address the intertwinement of fantasy and the city across cultures, a gap this volume seeks to fill.
