Strecker, Trey

The electronic peer-reviewed English Studies Forum (www.bsu.edu/web/esf) seeks innovative creative and critical writing. The editors of ESF want to feature engaging critical essays, as well as truly creative and experimental work-fiction, poetry, and nonfiction-that takes formal risks.

The editors are currently soliciting manuscripts for several ongoing sites, including forums on the postmodern imagination and beyond, the individual in war, parody / play / performance, mind and matter, and spaces.

**With apologies for cross-posting.**
As engagements with "Romantic Science" become increasingly varied and
complex, references to the life and works of Erasmus Darwin appear
with increasing frequency in a multitude of contexts. Similarly,
treatments of Darwin's connections to contemporary literary figures,
as well as reexaminations of his own status as a popular poet,
suggest that sustained attention to Darwin can further enrich our
understandings of the relation between poetry and science. Papers
exploring any aspect of these issues in Darwin's works will be
considered. Possible topics may include: Darwin and Evolutionary
Thought; Poetics of Zoology and/or Botany; Darwin and the Lives of

Aging and the Young: Representations of Old Age in Young Adult and
Children's Literature

What do storybooks teach children about getting old? How do
children's books and books for young adults construct lifetimes on a
personal and a social level? How do such books contribute to ageism,
age positivism, or a multiplicity of views? How could they do things
differently? How can and do books for pre-adults prepare people to
embrace the challenges of getting older throughout the life
cycle? Papers on all aspects of old age in children's and young
adult literature welcomed.
