special journal issue on Milton's "Paradise Regained"

Tuesday, January 4, 2011 - 5:11pm

Of the two Miltonic epics, Paradise Regained has been under-served by criticism while its longer counterpart has perhaps been over-served. The Huntington Library Quarterly now seeks proposals for essays to be included in a special issue devoted to Paradise Regained.

To propose an essay, submit a 500-word abstract and a cv. We will review proposals received by June 30, 2011. We will then invite submissions of full manuscripts (of 7,000 to 15,000 words), to be completed by December 31, 2011. These will be circulated to referees, with publication planned before the end of 2012.

[Update] "Short-Lived Tactical Connections: Owning Our Best, Failed Efforts at Community Outreach"

"Short-Lived Tactical Connections: Owning Our Best, Failed Efforts at Community Outreach "

Proposals due January 6, 2011

One of the most salient themes within current service-learning scholarship is the importance of sustainability; Ellen Cushman puts it best when she argues that thoughtless practitioners have a "hit it or quit it" attitude. Committed teachers and community members work hard to establish strong ties between the university and the community; some scholars have even developed long standing, community-based writing centers that serve as models for the country (Utah, Pittsburgh, 826 Valencia).
