Place and Space in Interwar Women’s Literature in English - Edited Collection
CfP: Place and Space in Interwar Women’s Literature in English
Dr Nick Turner and Dr Nicola Darwood invite essays for an edited collection on the topic of place and space in fiction by interwar women writers in English. Topics may include, but are not restricted to:
Portrayal of the home
Homelessness and displacement
Boundaries and borders
Rural space/use of the pastoral
The seaside, coast and liminal spaces
The relationships of genres (romance, crime, etc) to place and space
We are interested in work on a range of writers from the high- to the lowbrow, to help give the fullest possible picture of interwar culture, and are equally interested in the work of canonical and non-canonical writers. We are however particularly interested in essays on the following writers:
Elizabeth von Arnim, Stella Benson, Ann Bridge, Leonora Carrington, Ivy Compton-Burnett, Lettice Cooper, E.M. Delafield, Mollie Keane, Marghanita Laski, Rose Macaulay, G.B. Stern, Julia Strachey, Angela Thirkell, Sylvia Townsend Warner, Rebecca West and E.H. Young
Please send abstracts and biographical details to Dr Nicola Darwood at email@example.com by August 1st 2020.
Invited essays will be required by December 1st 2020.
