CFP: Neo-formalism (Essay Collection)
We invite contributions to a proposed collection of essays that examine or
apply neo-formalism as a vehicle of literary inquiry. Increasingly scholars
reevaluate form and aesthetics as a starting point of literary analysis,
thereby suggesting a renewed need for reflection upon the legacy of the New
Critics and the future of formalism and the ways in which cultural
criticism and contextual analysis intersect with and inform these approaches.
