The rapidly growing Critical Insights series serves a number of purposes, the most important of which is to support undergraduate education by compiling volumes that are both useful to teachers and accessible to students. These volumes compile essays on a variety of literary themes, genres, authors, and texts that are relevant to the content of undergraduate literature courses. Currently, contributions of original material (not previously published) are sought for the Critical Insights volume on Aldous Huxley's Brave New World volume. The following items are needed:
4000-5000 word introductory cultural/historical context chapter [Critical Contexts section]
4000-5000 word introductory compare/contrast chapter [Critical Contexts section]
4000-5000 word introductory critical reception chapter [Critical Contexts section]
4000-5000 word introductory critical lens chapter [Critical Contexts section]
ten 5000-word chapters on topics related to Brave New World, as proposed by the authors of those chapters.
Essays should be submitted via e-mail, preferably as a Word attachment, by December 1, 2013. Authors of essays will receive an honorarium of $250, but no copy of the volume--though copies will likely be available at a discount. Those potentially interested in contributing should send an inquiry or brief proposal to the volume editor, Professor M. Keith Booker, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
