This essay collection explores how contemporary British authors engage in their fiction with the theme of crisis (as apparent in novels and short stories by Kazuo Ishiguro, Julian Barnes, A S Byatt, Ian McEwan, Graham Swift, Hilary Mantel, Zadie Smith, Colm Toibin, Pat Barker, Martin Amis, etc.) Crisis can be investigated as informing any aspect of fiction involving not only individual, sociopolitical, cultural systems but also as a mode of challenge to established power structures and modes of representation across narrative traditions.

The Space Between Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 30, 2021

While the Bright Young Things of England and the flappers of the America remain fixed in cultural memory, their incarnations elsewhere around the world have all but disappeared from history.  Affiliation with a feminized Anglo-European metropole may have contributed to their invisibility in the colonial peripheries, constructed around paradigms of masculine nationhood or anxious to distinguish themselves from Anglo-European mass culture. Despite her iconic status in the interwar period, the stigma associated with this notorious female figure in her own time seems to have carried over into the academy, inhibiting serious critical analysis of her role and function as an image for modernity.

Archetypal and Jungian psychology have a well-established and verified relationship with esoteric and occult worldviews, a circumstance demonstrated even more clearly with the publication of Jung's Liber Novus.  However, while there is considerable literature on the intersections of the general background of psychodynamic origins with the occult milieu, they have been explored less systematically and also less sensationally.  Similarly, while parapsychology occupies a significant place in popular cultural lore that overlaps with conspiracism and also the study of the paranormal, systematic inquiry into the relationship of scientific psychology with occult, esoteric, magical, and mystical worldviews has also been less prominent, though present non
