Special Issue: John McGahern (Spring/Summer 2005)

The Irish University Review invites submissions for a special issue of the
journal devoted to the work of John McGahern. McGahern is one of Ireland's
most celebrated and controversial novelists and short story writers, whose
second novel, The Dark, was banned in 1966, and whose most recent novel,
That They May Face The Rising Sun (2002) has earned him the accolade of
'Ireland's greatest living novelist' (The Observer). The journal invites
submissions on all aspects of McGahern's writings, and welcomes in
particular submissions addressing McGahern's lesser known work, including
his stage, radio, and screen-plays, and those placing McGahern's work in its
various contexts.

Each essay in the journal issue should be approximately 5,000 words, and
should be prepared according to the style guidelines available on request
from the guest editor of this issue.

Send submissions by mail (one printed copy of the essay with one page of
curriculum vitae) to John Brannigan, Guest editor, IUR, Dept of English,
University College Dublin, Belfield, Dublin 4, Republic of Ireland. The
deadline for submission in the first instance is 1st December 2003. Essays
accepted for publication are expected to be delivered in final format in
Autumn 2004.
