MHRA Working Papers in the Humanities: 'Space/Time'
Call for Papers Deadline:
Contributions are now invited for the 2009 issue of the MHRA Working Papers in the Humanities, an international, refereed online journal. A special, themed section of the journal will be dedicated to 'Space/Time,' though papers on other topics are also welcome.
The MHRA Working Papers in the Humanities (http://www.mhra.org.uk/ojs/index.php/wph) is an electronic publication forum intended to allow researchers to present initial findings or hypotheses such as might, at a more advanced stage, become eligible for publication in established scholarly journals. As such it will be of particular interest to postgraduate researchers, though established scholars are also invited to submit papers.
The fourth issue of the Working Papers will be published in November 2009, and the editorial panel aims to choose half of the papers from submissions that relate to the theme of 'Space/Time.' Authors might consider, among other things:
- Linear temporality and its disruptions
- History and historical narrative in language, literature, or culture
- Memory, recollection, nostalgia, forgetting
- Monumentalisation - fixing points in the landscape in perpetuity
- Place and space
- Science fiction (other spaces, other times)
- Outer space
- Engagement with landscape
- Language across/within borders
- Nations and nationalism as constructions in space and time
- Translation across space and time
Papers may come from any field in the 'modern humanities', which include the modern and mediaeval languages, literatures, and cultures of Europe (including English and the Slavonic languages, and the cultures of the European diaspora). History, library studies, education and pedagogy, and the medical application of linguistics are excluded.
THE SUBMISSION DEADLINE IS 1 MAY, 2009.
