Contributions are sought for a new collection of essays on Janet Frame.

"Frameworks: Contemporary Criticism on Janet Frame"

By foregrounding the frameworks (both cultural and critical) for Frame's
work, this collection will showcase alternate narratives of the content
and composition of Frame's work across a range of genres: novels,
autobiographies, poetry, short fiction and non-fiction. Work on Frame's
poetry and non-fiction is particularly encouraged.

Articles should be between 5000-8000 words, of international standard,
and should reflect current work on Frame. A theoretical focus is
encouraged but not mandatory. Essays tracing themes and/or critical
concerns across a range of texts are preferred; however, single-text
essays will also be considered.

Submissions might relate to, but are not limited to:

Different phenomenologies of reading Frame's work
Current critical and cultural theories (postcolonial, feminist etc.)
Philosophical concerns within and without Frame's work (ontology, ethics
Frame - influences and source material

Abstracts of 500 words are requested by 1 December 2005, with
full-length manuscripts required by 1 July 2006.

Please forward enquiries and abstracts to: and

Please send abstracts in the body of emails rather than as attachments.
