Subject: CFP: EMLS: Literature and Geography
This announcement will be cross-posted - please excuse duplication.
Submissions are invited for a collection of essays on Renaissance Literature
and Geography to be edited by Richard Helgerson and Joanne Woolway. The
collection will grow out of a panel which has been accepted for presentation at
the Modern Languages Association Conference this December and will be published
initially as a special issue of Early Modern Literary Studies.
<http://unixg.ubc.ca:7001/0/e-sources/emls/emlshome.html> We hope that the
collection will also be published in conventional paper format afterwards.
Papers of approximately 5000-9000 words should deal with any aspect of the
interrelation of literature and geography in the period 1500-1700, including
cartography, landscape depiction, ideas of culture and place, perspective, book
illustration, or the formation of the disciplines. The deadline for submissions
is 1 June 1997.
As this collection will be published electronically, illustrations,
hypertextual links to other resources, or moving images are especially
welcomed. Papers should be sent on disk, with accompanying material, if
appropriate, to Joanne Woolway, Oriel College, Oxford, OX1 4EW, England
