Special Issue (2019) of The Journal of Wyndham Lewis Studies ('Lewis and the Post-War, 1919-1921')
In his autobiography Blasting and Bombardiering (1937), Lewis memorably assessed the world in which he found himself on returning from the western front: 'We were all in the post-war, but that period produced nothing but a lot of sub-Sitwells and sheep in Woolfe’s clothing, and we were not of it. I call us here "the Men of 1914".' The Journal of Wyndham Lewis Studies seeks 7- to 10,000-word essays that engage with Lewis’s post-war writing, activities, and social networks. We are particularly interested in essays that:

In her groundbreaking book titled Women in the Nineteenth Century, Margaret Fuller suggests a remedy for the degradation of work for women stating, “Women are the best helpers of one another” (117). Fuller’s statement has reflections in many works written at the end of the nineteenth century such as Elizabeth Stuart Phelps, The Silent Partner (1871), Alcott’s Work (18739, and Blake’s Fettered for Life (1874) all of which focus on sisterhood, solidarity, and feminine bond among women across class, race, and nationality as a survival mechanism within capitalist economy.

Special Issue of The Journal of Multimodal Rhetorics
Guest Editors: Ames Hawkins and Maria Novotny
This special issue explores the practice of curation as a multimodal form of creative-critical scholarship. Creative-critical scholarship often employs creative practice as methods and methodologies (Anderson, 2014). It does so in order to not only articulate, but to demonstrate and make material, the relevance of arts practice as scholarly inquiry (Wysocki, 2004). We see creative-critical scholarship as an artistic scholarly method facilitating action and engagement in critical social issues. We intend, then, for this special issue to call further attention to creative-critical scholarship as a multimodal rhetorical practice.
