Cameron McFarlane, Nipissing University, and Barbara Bruce, Carleton University

In anticipation of the 100th anniversary of the Titanic disaster in 2012, we seek abstracts (300-500 words) for an edited, interdisciplinary collection of scholarly essays.

Engineering marvel, instant parable, and dramatic stage set, the Titanic is as fascinating for its long afterlife as it is for its short but spectacular career. This collection proposes a re-examination of both the immediate and enduring cultural impact of the Titanic a century after its sinking. We welcome abstracts for articles addressing any aspect of the Titanic phenomenon from any critical, theoretical, or historical approach.
