CFP: David Foster Wallace's INFINITE JEST (collection; deadline 5/1/04)

Essays are invited for a proposed casebook of new essays on David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest.

The editors (Joseph Dewey and Trey Strecker) are soliciting essays from established scholars as well as newcomers, and the collection will also include essays-responses from selected novelists (perhaps even Mr. Wallace himself). In all, the project promises to be hugely attractive to a university press.

To allow contributors the freedom necessary to explore the text, this volume of essays will not be restricted by any theoretical approach or agenda.

We hope you share our enthusiasm both for Wallace’s massively-conceived text as well as for a project designed to bring that text to a wider audience.

If interested, please send a 300-500 word abstract and vita by 1 May 2004. Completed essays (15-20 pages) will be due 15 October 2004.

Please send two copies of your proposal to the editors at
