Call for Papers: Proposed edited collection on Barry Hannah
Oct. 21, 2002
Editors note: This call for papers was originally posted on the Society for the Study of Southern Literatures email discussion group, or “listserv.”
From Dr. Martyn Bone:
I am currently soliciting proposals for essay-length
contributions to an edited collection on Barry
Hannahs fiction. This collection would build on (and encompass) the
essays included in Ruth D. Westons Hannah special issue of Mississippi
Quarterly (Fall 2001). A major Southern university press has expressed interest
in publishing the project, and
At this stage I am interested in all proposals, of any critical approach and involving any Hannah work, short or long. However, please note that the aforementioned university press has expressed a preference for essays that range relatively widely; i.e., that do not consider only one of Hannahs stories/novels. Given that this would be the first essay collection on Hannahs work, and given the variety of that work, I am reluctant to impose a single overarching theme on either the collection or, indeed, Hannahs ouevre. However, publishing realities, for one, dictate that the collection will likely be organised around one, two or three overarching themes. As such, I am particularly interested in essays that encompass one or more of the following themes:
Please submit proposals (between 300-500 words)
to one of the email or postal addresses below as soon as possible, and no later
than 15 December 2002. I plan to submit formal proposals to at least two university
presses in late December 2002 or early January 2003.
