Lit: Literature Interpretation Theory is soliciting
submissions for a special issue on Servants and

This issue will explore the role of domestic servants
in British, American, and/or world literature from a
variety of critical perspectives. We welcome
comparative approaches that link different regions,
periods, or genres as well as theoretically informed
readings of individual texts. Papers that address
writings by or for servants are also welcome.

Guest Editor:
Julie Nash, UMass Lowell

Deadline for submissions: September 1, 2004

Lit: Literature Interpretation Theory also welcomes
submissions for general issues.

Lit: Literature Interpretation Theory publishes
critical essays which interpret texts from an
engaging, coherent theoretical perspective and which
provide original, close readings of texts. Because
Lit addresses a general literate audience, we
encourage essays unburdened by excessive theoretical
jargon. We do not restrict the journal's scope to
specific periods, genres, or critical paradigms.
Submissions range from 5000 to 10,000 words and must
use MLA citation style. Please send essays in
triplicate (if outside the U.S or Canada, one copy
will do), along with a 100 word abstract, to Regina
