Juang, Richard M.

Modern Language Studies (MLS) would like to solicit reviews of the new
Penguin translations of Freud's works. Reviewers should be aware of the
differences between the new translations and the Standard Edition. We
encourage reviewers to discuss issues of translation and their
consequences for psychoanalytic literary studies and/or the study of
Freud in a literary context.

Reviews may range from 1500-3000 words. Longer reviews may also be
possible.

Reviewers must be members of the Northeast Modern Language Association
(www.nemla.org) by the time of publication.

CFP: Revisiting Robert Bage (3/1/06; collection)

SANDRO JUNG

Revisiting Robert Bage's Fiction

 

 

The editor (Dr Sandro Jung) of the projected collection on Robert Bage invites full-length chapters (6000-8000 words) on any aspect of Bage's fiction. While Bage's Hermsprong has received occasional scholarly interest, it has, on the whole, remained Bage's only novel that is read nowadays. In that respect, chapters on Bage's other novels would be especially welcome. It is hoped that the novels will be contextualised against the background of the Romantic discourses of identity as well as the political (anti-)Jacobin debates.

 

Please submit 400-word abstracts electronically to the editor at Sandro.Jung at btinternet.com
