The Olive Moore Collection
Deadline for submissions: December 15, 2007
British modernist Olive Moore published three novels and one journal in
the late 1920s and early 1930s through Charles Lahr's Red Lion Street
Bookstore and press. Her highly experimental texts, contentiously laden
with issues of gender, sexuality, maternity, nation, and geography, have
yet to receive critical attention. This collection seeks to explore her
work through multiple critical lenses in essays of 5 - 25 pages. Possible
topics may include:
Maternal monstrosities and the modernist project
The physical geography of Bloomsbury and Holborn
Gender and sexuality

CFP: [Theory] Peer Reviewed Collection: Adaptation Theories

Proposals are sought for Adaptation Theories, a peer-reviewed collection to be published by the
Jan van Eyck Press. Art historians, literary scholars, cultural theorists and critics are invited to
submit abstracts for projects examining the idea of serial adaptations that traverse various
genres, theories and media. In light of Walter Benjamin’s trepidation regarding the notion of
“original” texts, how do we regard works that are adapted and readapted to the extent that they,
in some cases, contradict, refute, criticize, or even attack the original? And how can we analyze
serial adaptations in an interdisciplinary sense, while resisting the tendency to isolate singular
