CALL FOR ESSAY SUBMISSIONS to Fidelma of Cashel: Essays on Peter Tremayne’s 7th-Century Crime Mysteries (McFarland & Company), edited by Edward J. Rielly and David Robert Wooten.
Fidelma of Cashel is a collection of essays responding to Tremayne’s stories about Sister Fidelma, the mystery-solving, seventh-century religieuse from Cashel, Ireland. Suggested topics include but are not limited to the following: narrative elements in the stories (e.g., plot patterns, thematic elements, conflict); gender issues (e.g., gender reversals, Sister Fidelma as career woman and mother); other critical approaches (e.g., deconstruction, new historicism, reader-response criticism, psychoanalytic criticism); secondary characters; and essays about teaching the Sister Fidelma stories. Essays are to be approximately 3000-4000 words long, typed double-spaced. Documentation is to follow guidelines of the Modern Language Association.
Anyone interested in contributing an essay should contact the editors immediately with a brief proposal (2-3 paragraphs) and a short description of relevant background. Invited essays will be due as e-mail attachments no later than October 1, 2011. Further information will be sent later to those who are invited to submit essays.
