Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2023) | Viewed by 5142
I hope you are doing well during these uncertain times. Please find attached a call for submissions for a Special Issue of Humanities, an international, scholarly, peer-reviewed, open-access journal. This Issue will be on the work of Percival Everett. As you will see from the list of suggested topics, I intend this collection to be as wide-ranging as possible. I hope you will consider making a contribution to the collection.
The artistic production of Percival Everett (whether in fiction, poetry, or painting) continues to beguile some and elude others. Scholars who work on Everett’s work, or (perhaps more accurately) produce work based on what Everett encourages them to think about, conventionally find ourselves attempting to “explain” this artist’s work to the uninitiated. Therefore, the title of this Special Issue does not refer to the challenges Everett faces, but to those his varied work poses for those who presume to take it on.
Drafts of articles may be sent to [email protected] by the deadline indicated at the opening of this call for papers. Papers will be peer-reviewed. Please do not hesitate if you have any questions. All best, and stay well.
Suggested topics but not limited:
- Representations of home in Everett;
- Everett and being American;
- Early Everett vs. later Everett;
- Everett and non-Everett (comparing to other writers);
- Everett and non-Everett (books of Everett’s that don’t read like Everett);
- Trauma in Everett;
- Politics in Everett;
- Everett and form (political, aesthetic, moral);
- Everett’s poetry.
