New: Revised Deadline

Contributions are sought for a collection, being prepared for Oxford UP,
on teaching the Middle Eastern and North African novel. The volume is
divided into two main sections: the first devoted to theoretical
approaches and the second to the different course and institutional
contexts in which the novels are taught; the volume will also include a
resources section. One-page abstracts and brief bios are invited by July
1, 2006, although I encourage potential contributors to contact me well in
advance; selected contributors will then be asked to submit complete
essays by February 1, 2007. Queries welcome:

CFP: Form and Genre in the Literature of the Long Eighteenth Century (10/1/06; collection)

SANDRO JUNG

Collection: Form and Genre in the Literature of the Long Eighteenth Century, 1660-1830
   
  Articles (6000-7000, including notes) are invited for a collection on form and genre in the literature of the long eighteenth century. While the novel has traditionally received sustained critical analysis, non-fictional prose and poetic genres have usually been neglected. It is hoped that a wide variety of genres and (poetic) forms will be explored. Papers that deal with hybridisation of genres are especially welcome. Also, contextualisations of genres such as the ode in European terms are encouraged.

As we are finalizing the program for the Society for the Study of
American Women Writers Conference, to be held November 8-11, 2006, in
Philadelphia, we have decided to add a session, hopefully of between two
and four panels, on two areas that are relatively new for the SSAWW:
1. women's popular culture and 2. third-wave feminism.

If you are interested in presenting a paper on either of these two broad
topics, please contact me (at dek7_at_lehigh.edu) as soon as possible, but
definitely before June 30.
