Special Issue: Terror/ism and the Postmodern Novel

For an upcoming special issue of Studies in the Novel, I seek critical
studies of novels since the mid-20th century dealing with terror or
terrorism in a postmodern, globalist, biological/nuclear, and/or
high-tech context. All analyses of contemporary novels (or fiction by
contemporary novelists) dealing with the disturbing implications of "the
global village" are welcome, as are theoretical considerations of terror
(and horror?) in the postmodern age, as opposed to their pre-nuclear (or
pre-9/11) conceptualizations. Analyses of novels whose themes include
intra-state terrorism inflicted upon ethnic and sexual minorities are
also sought.

ONE-PAGE ABSTRACTS ONLY by March 1 to Jacqueline Foertsch, Department
of English, University of North Texas, Denton, TX 76205.
