New Series Announcement

CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN AND CANADIAN WRITERS

Call for Proposals for a new series of academic monographs

Manchester University Press is proud to announce the launch of a new
series dedicated to the critical appraisal of contemporary North American
writers. The series will reflect the breadth and diversity of writing in
America over the last thirty years, and will provide critical evaluations
of established, emerging and critically neglected novelists. This series
offers an exciting opportunity for authors to explore notions of the
contemporary, and to analyze current and developing modes of
representation with a focus on individual writers and their works.

Faulkner Journal

The Faulkner Journal
Call for Papers: Faulkner and Whiteness
Deadline: 9/24/05

Guest Editor: Jay Watson, University of Mississippi

Faulkner lived and wrote at a time when models of normative and deviant
identity were increasingly racialized, even as models of racial identity
were increasingly biologized. This is one among many reasons why whiteness
in Faulkner--and the whiteness of Faulkner--deserve our critical attention.
This special double issue of The Faulkner Journal welcomes submissions that
problematize the ostensibly unremarkable phenomenon of whiteness in
Faulkner's life and career. Topics could include, but are by no means
limited to, the following:

Lisa Romano

Mind and Human Interaction, an interdisciplinary journal published by
the Center for the Study of Mind and Human Interaction, University of
Virginia, is seeking papers on the theme of "Diaspora Identity".

Whether exiled or immigrating to a new land, whether first or second
generation, an individual psychologically intertwines the home of origin
and the present home in a variety of ways that impact his/her identity.
We would be very interested in learning more about this psychological
process and look forward to receiving your submission.

Edited Book on Recent Arab Women's Autobiographical Writings in English
Call for contribution

    My book Reading Arab Women's Autobiographies. Shahrazad Tells Her
Story was published last November (2003) by Texas University Press.
The book fills a gap in the field. Texas University Press expressed
interest in another book in the same area.
    In the book, I looked at autobiographical, fictional
autobiographical and anthologies of interviews with women. I read texts
by Huda Shaarawi, Nawal El-Saadawi, Fadwa Tuqan, Bouthaina Shaaban,
Fatima Mernissi, and Nayra Atiya. The book also examined the
sociopolitical background of the texts as well as the tradition of
narrative theory.

reflect themes of the relationship of history,
authority, and cultural self-expression.

Hungry Words: Images of Famine in the Irish Canon

Deadline extended to May 15, 2004

Abstracts of 500 words or essays of around 9,000 words are being solicited
for Hungry Words, an anthology which will examine representations of hunge=

or famine in the works of canonical Irish authors. The terms =B3famine=B2 and
=B3canonical=B2 are, of course, loaded ones in Irish studies, and it is my
particular desire to collect essays which question the various
manifestations of these terms in recent literary scholarship.
