Dalhousie Review Call for Papers
on the subject of PLEASURE

Is pleasure a social good? An ethical good? Is pleasure an emotion? An
aesthetic category? Are the accounts of pleasure offered by Bentham and
Freud, for example, still persuasive? Are pleasure and pain indeed
opposites, as most informal discourse about them would imply? How can we
account for the investment in renouncing pleasure that recurs in the history
of culture? Have the critical languages of our own day developed an adequate
vocabulary for discussing the notion of pleasure? Articles that address
these, or any other questions related to the idea of pleasure, are invited
for a special issue of The Dalhousie Review to be published in 2004.

Manuscripts should be double-spaced, on plain white paper, and should not
exceed 7,500 words. Documentation, including footnotes, should follow the
conventions observed in recent issues of The Dalhousie Review; these are
consistent with the guidelines in Joseph Gibaldi, MLA Handbook for Writers
of Research Papers, 4th ed. (New York: Modern Language Association of
America, 1995) 241–56. Hard copy only should be sent with the first

The deadline for receipt of contributions is 15 December 2003.
