CFP for a special issue of Persuasions On-Line Papers due by March 1st

Persuasions On-Line, a peer-reviewed electronic journal devoted to
scholarship on Jane Austen, solicits papers for a special issue on the
most recent film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice: the 2005 Focus
Features film starring Keira Knightley and Matthew MacFadyen.

The film garnered the attention and praise of film critics and the
Academy, earning Keira Knightley glowing reviews and a nomination for
Best Actress. The scholarly reception of the film has been far more
mixed and limited, and often considers the film only in the context of
other Austen adaptations, especially the 1995 Colin Firth/Jennifer
Ehle BBC/A&E production. We invite papers that offer substantive
critical readings of the 2005 Focus Features Production in a variety
of contexts.

This special issue of Persuasions On-Line will be co-edited by Jen
Camden and Susan Allen Ford and published in July 2007.

Please send complete papers (approximately 2,000-4,000 words in
length) no later than March 1st to Susan Allen Ford at Please send one electronic copy as an e-mail
attachment in Microsoft Word format. All papers should conform to MLA
style. References to Jane Austen?s novels should be to the R. W.
Chapman edition (Oxford UP). A copy of POL Guidelines may be obtained
from Susan Allen Ford or Jen Camden at .
