Nineteenth-Century Prose invites submissions for a special issue on writing by T. B. Macaulay, scheduled for fall, 2006. We hope for a wide range of topics and approaches regarding particular essays by Macaulay, or the Edinburgh Review essays as a corpus, and /or his History of England. His parliamentary and bureaucratic texts, such as those concerning India, will also be considered suitable subject matter. The perspectives of literary study, history, historiography, and the philosophy of history are all welcome. So are submissions employing interdisciplinary approaches or discussing Macaulay texts in relation to interdisciplinary issues. Essays in cultural studies, including colonial and postcolonial studies, are also encouraged as promising in mode for examination of this writer who was read so widely during his lifetime and on through the long nineteenth-century.
Inquiries, proposals, and submissions should be sent by e-mail to the guest editor, Thomas Gillcrist, at Reed College (e-mail address provided below). Proposals (1-3 pages) are recommended and should be received as soon as practical. Completed essays are due by September 1, 2005 and normally should not exceed 9500 words. Submissions must be sent as attachments in MS Word. Chicago or MLA format is recommended. In any event, all text, including notes and indented quotes, should be double spaced throughout. Notes should be created in a separate file with superscripts NOT created through automatic computer formatting. Submissions should be accompanied by a one-paragraph abstract and a two-or three-sentence vita.
