Cambridge Scholars Press has contacted me and would like me to submit a book proposal on my proposed Society for the Study of American Women Writers panel titled "Popular Nineteenth-Century Women Writers and the Literary Marketplace." Though I can only accept four papers for the conference, I need about twelve to fifteen papers for the book. I would like to get the book proposal out before the end of this year; therefore, please note the deadline listed below. The focus of the book will be on the American marketplace and how women writers dealt with their editors ("gentlemen publishers"). In other words, how did the woman writer's relationship with the publisher influence or change her work?

I am seeking submissions to complete a volume on women, representation
and space in 19th and 20th century literature written in English. While
the main focus of the volume is women's metaphorical appropriation and
subvertion of public and private spaces since the beginning of the 19th
century until today, this call for papers in particular seeks essays on
contemporary women writers appropriating, negotiating and/or
deconstructing public/private spaces. I am especially interested in
essays that question the simplistic binary divide between public and
private spaces, and essays dealing with the trope of the flâneuse in the
postmodern city. Proposals on little explored authors such as Tama

Comitini, Patricia Prof.

We're soliciting papers for a volume tentatively titled Literature and
the Addicted Subject, 1700-Present. This volume will examine how the
post-Romantic conception of literature constructs both the possibility
and our understanding of addiction. While there are collections and
books that discuss the addictions of authors or representations of
addiction, the focus of this book is substantially different: it seeks
to examine how addiction is a historical phenomenon that is enabled by
particular ideological and cultural preconditions. Thus, we do not
assume addiction's existence prima facie, and do not assume it is one
thing at all times. Addiction needs particular historical preconditions:

The Bible in the Nineteenth Century:
The Word and its Re-Wordings in British Literature and Thought

The Bible has played a significant part in British culture since the
Reformation. It has been a major reference not only in the field of
religious experience but also, more broadly, in artistic expression and
intellectual reflection. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, the
Evangelical Revival placed the Scriptures at the heart of religious
practices and certain Romantics reasserted the importance of the Bible by
offering new readings.

The Bible has played a significant part in British culture since the Reformation. It has been a major reference not only in the field of religious experience but also, more broadly, in artistic expression and intellectual reflection. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, the Evangelical Revival thus placed the Scriptures at the heart of religious practices and certain Romantics reasserted the importance of the Bible in renewing its reading.

standing in cultural studies or other academic fields is of particular
interest. Interdisciplinary approaches are welcomed. Submissions which
discuss both Arnold's poetry and prose are appropriate, but not those which
focus exclusively on poetry.
