CFP: The New Criticism (06/15/07; collection)

I welcome abstracts and full essays for a proposed volume on American
"New Criticism." Essays that deal in an original manner with the history
of this movement (including its impact and legacy in higher education,
its connections to Continental formalist movements and authors, etc.)
are especially encouraged, as are essays that address the theoretical
and philosophical implications of New Critical practice. A good general
description of the proposed book's area would be "history of criticism
and theory." I am in talks with Cambridge Scholars Press regarding this
volume, and will submit a formal proposal after I have selected

Abstracts should be approximately 500 words long. Please submit
abstracts in MS Word or RTF by email attachment (or inline) to Dr.
Alfred J. Drake at <> and
include in your email's subject heading the phrase "New Criticism" along
with your name. Please include a CV as a separate attachment, and if you
maintain an academic website, you are welcome to include a link to it in
your abstract or CV. My preference is for work that has not yet been
published, but I will consider previously published material.

The deadline for abstracts is June 15, 2007. I will confirm receipt

              From the Literary Calls for Papers Mailing List
