updated: 
Tuesday, June 3, 2003 - 4:55am
Courtney, Angela

I am currently seeking contributors for a new volume in the Dictionary
of Literary Biography series. This volume will be the first one in the
series to focus on Nineteenth-Century British Dramatists.

The assignments vary in length from 5,000-12,000 words, but should all
combine a bio-bibliographical narrative with a critical assessment of
the author's works.

If you are unfamiliar with DLB format, see http://www.bcl-manly.com for
a sample entry and style guidelines, or consult your library reference
section for examples of previous volumes in the series.

Authors of published entries receive a small honorarium and a copy of the
volume.

Popular Cultures/Cultures of the Popular: 1870-1945
 From the mid-nineteenth century to the mid-twentieth century critical
judgements about popular culture remained extremely diverse; theorists both
celebrated the emergence and preservation of popular cultural forms and
lamented the rise of new market-driven cultural commodities. Perhaps
because of such diversity, there are areas in which a thorough assessment
of the relationships within and between these positions remains to be
done. Popular culture was itself extremely diverse and developments in
critical studies have helped to produce a more detailed picture of the
forms that popular culture took at that time. Recent work in nineteenth

Victorian "Freaks"
A Collection of Essays

The Nineteenth-Century is noted for its strict notions of the normative and its
anxieties about difference. "Freaks" and various kinds of freak shows
proliferated in this climate. Not only is freakishness associated with what
seems odd or fanciful, but also with a "turn of the mind," rebellion, or
critique. This collection aims to explore various disruptions caused by or
creating "freakishness" as it relates to social issues and social change.
