Special Issue:Romanticism and Contemporary Literary Theory

Wednesday, September 5, 2018 - 11:03am
Cassandra Falke, UiT-The Arctic University of Norway
deadline for submissions:

I am pleased to announce a forthcoming special issue of the journal Humanities focused on “Romanticism and Contemporary Literary Theory.” As Brian McGrath has noted, new literary theoretical ideas are often articulated for the first time in relation to Romantic-period texts. This may be because Romantic-period authors, like literary theorists today, returned repeatedly to fundamental questions about relationships between expression and self-becoming, the environment and human flourishing, progress and the persistence of the past. It may be because so many of the ideas about education, perception, and community that still influence us found their first expression in English between the 1780s and 1830s.

Special Issue (2019) of The Journal of Wyndham Lewis Studies ('Lewis and the Post-War, 1919-1921')

In his autobiography Blasting and Bombardiering (1937), Lewis memorably assessed the world in which he found himself on returning from the western front: 'We were all in the post-war, but that period produced nothing but a lot of sub-Sitwells and sheep in Woolfe’s clothing, and we were not of it. I call us here "the Men of 1914".' The Journal of Wyndham Lewis Studies seeks 7- to 10,000-word essays that engage with Lewis’s post-war writing, activities, and social networks. We are particularly interested in essays that:
