This edited collection will be published by Cambridge Scholars in late 2020. The volume invites essays that focus on literary or other cultural texts that use the graveyard as a liminal space within which received narratives and social values can be challenged, and new and empowering perspectives on the present articulated.  Essays in the volume will examine the use of liminality as a vehicle for social critique, paying particular attention to the ways in which liminal spaces facilitate the construction of alternative perspectives.

A Chapter should be no longer than 6000 words, and should be original and previously unpublished.
