        The Pater Newsletter seeks essays for a special issue on "Pater and Cosmopolitanism." In “Mr.
George Moore as an Art Critic” (1893), Pater asserts that “the genius of Ingres is cosmopolitan, like
that of those old Greek artists,” then goes on to explain why “a certain cosmopolitanism [is], in
truth, an element of national character.” Essays that explore the implications of cosmopolitanism
for literary, aesthetic, mythic, historical, national, political and/ or cultural work in a Paterian
context are invited. Essays should be approximately 2500-3000 words. Each submission should
include a title page identifying your name and institutional address; the essay, which should not
include any identifying markers; and a 200-word abstract.

Extended eadline for submissions: 15 January 2009.
Questions and/or submissions should be directed to:
