Contributors are sought for a collection of original essays on Hanif
Kureishi's writing and filmmaking. The deadline for 500-word abstracts is
10th November 2003. It is intended that the volume should explore each of
the genres within which Kureishi works (novels, plays, screenplays, films,
short stories, essays and music criticism). I am particularly interested
in receiving contributions that take new approaches to his best-known
works and that explore facets of his oeuvre that have, as yet, received
little critical scrutiny.

Contributors should note that although no critical/theoretical approach is
discouraged, essays should appeal to good undergraduate and postgraduate
students as well as scholars in the field. The collection will be
published by a North American academic press. A final selection of 15
essays will be submitted to the press for publication in Spring 2005.

Essays should be 7-8,000 words in length.
Please forward this call for papers to interested colleagues.

Please send abstracts or completed essays as Microsoft word attachment to:
