'Literary London: Interdisciplinary studies in the representation of London' is the first and only refereed academic journal to provide a common forum for scholars and students engaged specifically in the study of London and literature. It is dedicated to fostering an intellectual community that will facilitate interdisciplinary exchange. While the editorial focus of the journal is on representations of London in literature, articles in cognate disciplines that will contribute to readings of London are very much encouraged. These subject areas might include readings of London in history, drama, film, geography, art history, architecture, urban sociology, painting and engraving, etc.

Resistance to Tyranny:
Representing the Struggle for Human Rights in Literature
 
In an interview with Amnesty International, Chilean writer and activist Ariel Dorfman
explains that, despite efforts to silence survivors of human rights violations, "Somehow the
stories do come out, those voices do come out. I am not their voice: I make a space for

CFP: The Aesthetics of Tolerance

Western Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies Annual Convention

Papers are invited for a panel that will consider both
representations of religious tolerance and the aesthetic itself as a
means to promote tolerance in the Enlightenment. Papers that consider
toleration in relation to anxieties about Enlightenment modes of
disciplinarity, the containment of conversation in the public sphere,
or the ideological interests served by the promotion of toleration
are welcome, as are investigations of the rhetoric of tolerance, the
formation of liberal subjectivity, and ambivalent treatments of
tolerance.
