Sporting Victorians
The journal `Critical Survey' invites proposals for 4,000-6,000 word articles analysing some of the cultural and social dimensions of sport in Britain in the years 1800-1914. The nineteenth century saw the rise of professionalism in sport and the emergence of women as participants. Sport also engaged a wide range of novelists, poets, dramatists, painters and journalists – both as commentators and participants – from Byron's swimming to J.M. Barrie's cricket team.

Subjects might include but are not limited to the following:

Intégrité: A Journal of Faith and Learning welcomes essays for a special issue (spring 2012) on "The Christian Dimension of Contemporary Fiction." Essays may explore any aspect of Christianity--faith, belief, theology, spirituality, tradition, worship, or practice--as reflected in contemporary novels or short stories. The focus may be on a single work, a single writer, or may trace a particular theme in relation to several writers or works. While we invite treatments of both well-known and lesser-known fiction, we are especially looking for analyses of fiction that has generated interest beyond a narrowly Christian audience.
