The editor of a book collection tentatively called The Wild That Attracts Us: New Critical Essays on Robinson Jeffers invites proposals for essays that evidence the advance in Jeffers scholarship, especially since the publication of the most recent collections in the early- and mid-1990s. Since the publication of those volumes, there have been significant accomplishments in Jeffers scholarship: the entire five volumes of the Collected Poetry and the first of three volumes of the Collected Letters have been released, Jeffers Studies was established, and The Robinson Jeffers Association has flourished.

Babacar M’Baye & Alexander C.O. Hall, eds.

Critical and Transnational Approaches to American Popular Music is an ambitious project that examines both the local and transnational significance of American popular music such as Blues, Rock and Roll, and Hip Hop. The first part of the book will situate these musical genres in the large and complex framework of American popular culture in which language, utopia, and traditions have played major roles in the construction of identity, activism, and social change. The second part of the book will put American Blues, Rock and Roll, and Hip Hop in conversation with similar or different musical genres from other parts of the world in which identity, resistance, and social transformation are also crucial parts.
