Publication on Alice Munro â Call for Papers
In Canada, Alice Munro has been known as â[their] Chekhovâ for years. However, when the writer was awarded 2013 Nobel Prize in Literature, James Wood of The New Yorker used the opportunity to take that moniker several steps further, calling Munro âthe English languageâs Chekhov.â Our publication seeks to investigate what makes Alice Munroâs writing so exceptional on contemporary literary scene. We look for contributions exploring various aspects of Munroâs body of work, viewed both on its own and in a comparative perspective. Articles dealing with Munroâs biography and its relation to her writing are also welcome.
Abstract submissions of 250-400 words should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 10th December 2013. Notifications of acceptance will be sent by 10th January 2014. Full articles (of between 20,000 and 40,000 characters including spaces) should be submitted by 30th April 2014. The collection will be published in the series âDis/Continuitiesâ by Peter Lang.
