CALL FOR PAPERS
POETICS OF THE PARATEXT
(No. 1, 2010)
Guest Editor: R.-L. Etienne Barnett
The “paratext,” here defined as any textual accompaniment exterior to the text proper and yet intrinsically bound to it (prefaces, prologues, prolegomena, forewords, codas, authorial appendices, marginal notes, didascalia and other scripturally-conjoined paraphernalia) constitute the focus of this special number. Priority will be accorded to papers exploring the theoretical consequences and/or poetic operations of paratextual “objects” within the plexus of a work or series of works. All contributions focused upon this dimension of literary inquiry will be considered.
Manuscripts in English, French, German or Italian, not to exceed twenty-five (25) double-spaced pages, are welcome. Requirements: Papers, prepared in accordance with MLA guidelines and accompanied by an abstract in English, are to be submitted in the form of a Word document (attachment) to Dr. R.-L. Etienne Barnett (RLEBarnett@UofA.edu) with a copy to Dr. Péter Hajdu (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Deadline for manuscript submission: July 1, 2009.
Address inquiries or proposals to:
Dr. R.-L. Etienne Barnett (RLEBarnett@UofA.edu)
