CFP: [General] Essays for the Literary Encyclopedia

full name / name of organization: 
Alison Searle

Founded in 1998 The Literary Encyclopedia is a collaborative historical and
scholarly project of global ambition which intends eventually to provide a
description of all literary and cultural texts of scholarly interest in the
English-speaking world, and to provide informed guidance to critical
reading, cultural topics and the historical context of cultural production.
The Literary Encyclopedia welcomes offers from qualified scholars to write
entries on people, topics and works, from all periods, from the ancient
world to the present, including foreign literatures translated into
English. The publication is collectively owned by its editors and authors
(1600+ and constantly increasing), most of whom are current or recently
retired university teachers. The Literary Encyclopedia has already
published over 4100 articles and has 870 commissioned for publication in
the next 12 months. The publication is supported financially by
institutional subscriptions from a growing number of major literature
departments, and by individual subscribers. The search function on our
website allows one to determine which entries still need
to be written. Suggestions for additional entries on people, topics and
works are also welcome. If you are interested in writing a particular entry
please send a CV and short writing sample to:
