Call for Papers
(n.s. 59-60, Fall 2003)
_the minnesota review_ is planning a special issue "Smart Kids,"
guest-edited by Renny Christopher and seeks essays from "smart kids" who
entered English or other humanities fields as adults. More
specifically, this issue's focus will be the class rise education
represents. Potential contributors might discuss the experience of
working-class academics as presented in literature, contemporary media,
and/or their own lives; address issues of "smart" and how it and/or our
textually-oriented selves are constructed; or, more generally, explore
interconnections between class and education. The deadline for
submissions is 1 April 2003.
