Call For Contributors

Cannibalism and Eating the "Other": Stories of Human Cuisine

Deadline for submissions has been extended to July 1, 2005.

This mainstream book will feature a collection of stories, both
fiction and non-fiction, that explores the dangerous transgressive
desire to eat human flesh and how various cultures interpret this
behavior.

What is it about this subject that, simultaneously, fascinates and repulses us?

Is cannibalism as universally condemned as is commonly assumed?

At what point does it become acceptable? In what contexts is
cannibalism a regular part of societies, past and present?

In conjunction with the theme of a future issue of the Shakespeare
Yearbook, "Shakespeare and the Reformation" (co-edited with Glyn
Parry), the journal will sponsor a special session at the upcoming
Annual Meeting of the MLA (Washington, D.C., December 27-30, 2004).

For both the MLA Session and the concomitant issue of the Shakespeare
Yearbook we welcome proposals for papers that explore the ways in
which Shakespeare's plays and poems engage with the spiritual and
temporal consequences of religious change in Elizabethan and Jacobean
England.
