Collection: Form and Genre in the Literature of the Long Eighteenth Century, 1660-1830
   
  Articles (6000-7000, including notes) are invited for a collection on form and genre in the literature of the long eighteenth century. While the novel has traditionally received sustained critical analysis, non-fictional prose and poetic genres have usually been neglected. It is hoped that a wide variety of genres and (poetic) forms will be explored. Papers that deal with hybridisation of genres are especially welcome. Also, contextualisations of genres such as the ode in European terms are encouraged.
