AMS Press is seeking contributions for a special Festschrift edition of its
annual publication, Eighteenth-Century Novel. Publication is tentatively
scheduled for 2005. Final drafts of all manuscripts should be submitted by
15 July 2004.

At present the plan is to limit contributors to former students of
Professor Zimmerman, though other connections may be considered depending
on the response we get.

Manuscripts and queries should be sent to the editor of this volume:

Professor Susan Spencer
Department of English
University of Central Oklahoma
100 N University Drive
Edmond OK 73034-0184


Eighteenth-Century Novel is an annual refereed publication dedicated to
critical examination of the prose fiction of the "long" eighteenth century,
roughly 1688-1830.

Articles in this journal consist of scholarly research based on primary
sources, engaging in significant critical dialogue with existing scholarly
interpretations. Contributors need not limit their discussions to works
that are part of any traditional canon; this publication welcomes fresh
perspectives on a wide range of works and authors.

Manuscripts with an interdisciplinary approach are welcome, although their
primary concern should be the interpretation of literary works.

Submissions should be approximately 750-1,500 words for notes, or
7,000-14,000 words for articles, prepared in compliance with the rules and
procedures outlined in The Chicago Manual of Style, 14th ed.

The editor asks that contributors keep professional jargon to a minimum, as
the annual's intended audience includes the interested general public and
advanced undergraduates as well as professional scholars and graduate
students specializing in the period. Authors of articles dealing
extensively with works not written in English must ensure that these works
are available in translation; such articles should offer clear connections
to meaningful aspects of the Anglophone novel-tradition.

Eighteenth-Century Novel is published by AMS Press, Inc., Brooklyn Navy
Yard, Bldg. 292, Suite 417, 63 Flushing Avenue. Brooklyn NY 11205 USA.
