Textualities of American Drama: What are the textual forms of American drama? Dramatic works produced during the nineteenth century (an age largely dominated by spectacular melodrama) and the early twentieth century (an era that turned imperfectly to dramatic realism) are often studied according to their production histories rather than their circulation as printed play texts. But the publication of dramatic texts was a significant subplot of the expanding publishing industry throughout the United States. How did the making and consumption of plays in print shape the literary status of American drama?

deadline for submissions:

From the beginning, individuals such as W. E. B. Du Bois and Alain Locke attempted to mold and guide Harlem Renaissance authors, as well as control critical reception. Their roles as editors proved influential in the careers of many writers and in the movement itself. While the popular period has received much scholarly attention, the significance of editors and editing in the Harlem Renaissance remains woefully understudied. As a remedy, Editing the Harlem Renaissance will foreground an in-depth, exhaustive approach to relevant editing and editorial issues, offering a variety of voices and becoming a centralized authority on the subject.
