The Edith Wharton Review
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, August 1, 2017

We invite papers exploring any aspect of religion, spirituality, and the sacred in Wharton’s work, including the afterlives of religion in gothic, aestheticism, or satire. How does Wharton conceptualize belief, spirituality, or religious tradition within modernity? What place does the sacred have in her writing, and where are the sacred spaces in her work? Are there distinctive features to Wharton’s discussions of religious architecture or sacred art? What interactions take place between Wharton’s fiction and the Bible, or religious texts and genres? How does Wharton’s anthropological eye address religious movements, practices, or characters?
