We are looking to round out our collected volume of critical essays in American popular culture from 1865-1940,  that examine how women vigilantes, anti-heroines and outlaws of this era were represented in movie serials, radio dramas, films, comics, theater, and pulp fiction.  We are seeking at least one additional chapter. The majority of the book is set, and we are in contract with a peer-review publisher.  We are on a tight deadline, so preference will be given to papers that are already in progress that are a good fit for this collection.

Haunting Lives, edited collection, call for abstracts

Are you a creative writer who consciously plays with techniques that transgress the borders between fiction and nonfiction? What is it that attracts you to this liminal space between the two, and what new writing territory do you want to form there? Your work might be in auto/bio/fiction, the historical or nonfiction novel, speculative history or a hybrid genre. You might balk at these categories as reductive and antipathetic to this genre-defying writing. Haunting Lives is an edited collection that will illuminate this border country, help readers to navigate or succumb to its strange terrain and examine the spectres that live there.
