The editors of a planned, interdisciplinary volume on Shusaku Endo's last novel, Deep River, are looking for one final chapter contribution.

Set in 1984, Endo's novel features multiple references to the Hindu-Sikh conflict of the time, and we are inviting scholars to consider writing a chapter on the novel in relation to Sikhism, Hinduism, Indian secularism, and/or religion and violence.

Final essays (7000 words, inclusive of endnotes) are due in late May 2017.

Since this is the final piece in our planned anthology's puzzle, interested contributors should send an email, by 11/4/2016, to d.middleton2@tcu.edu, containing:


Chapter title

150 word abstract

Institutional affiliation
