CFP: Philip Roth (no deadline; journal issue)
Philip Roth Studies, a new, peer-reviewed journal published by Heldref Publications in cooperation with the Philip Roth Society, welcomes all writing pertaining entirely or in part to Philip Roth, his fiction, and his literary and cultural significance. Upcoming articles include "Trials and Errors at the Turn of the Millennium: On The Human Stain and J. M. Coetzee's Disgrace," "Philip Roth's 'Defender of the Faith': A Modern Midrash," "Dream or a Nightmare?: Contrasting the Depictions of Post-Civil Rights America in Philip Roth's American Pastoral and Toni Morrison's Paradise," and "The Story of the Self: Philip Roth's Progression toward The Counterlife."
Submission Details. The journal welcomes both full-length articles as well as shorter notes. Articles should be between 4,000-8,000 words in length, and notes should not exceed 2,500 words. A brief abstract (approximately 50 words) should accompany each submission. Manuscripts and book reviews must be prepared according to the MLA Style Manual, 2nd ed. (1998) by Joseph Gibaldi and should contain endnotes rather than footnotes. Electronic submissions via email (as attached Word files) are particularly welcome. If sending through regular mail, please submit two copies of the manuscript, with author identification on a separate cover sheet. Individuals whose works are accepted for publication must supply them in both paper and electronic format (Microsoft Word).
