Call for Papers: Shirley Jackson

Proposed Collection: Beyond "The Lottery": Critical Approaches to Shirley Jackson

Editor: Matthew B. Prickett, Longwood University

Beyond "The Lottery" will be the first peer-reviewed collection of critical materials examining the life and works of American author Shirley Jackson. The collection will be an opportunity for scholars to draw attention to lesser-known works of Jackson's, and expand on current scholarship in regards to more widely-known works. Ultimately, the collection will provide the author, and her works, with the critical attention that she has been denied until recently.

Possible topics include but are not limited to:

African-American Experience in the South

The Florida Conference of Historian Special Interest Section on Media Arts and Culture wishes to encourage scholarship aimed at African-American experience in the United States. The FCH-Media Arts and Culture SIS wishes to encourage scholars examining African-American agency and autonomy since Reconstruction in the South. Key to our concerns are scholars investigating community, family, and organizations that sought to further African-American inclusion in U.S. society. We welcome interdisciplinary submissions on or concerning African-American history, culture, literature, theory, and media to the FCH annual meeting. The Media Arts and Culture SIS encourages graduate students, undergraduates, and independent scholars who wish to participate.
