CFP: Patchwork, Cut-and-Paste, Reassembly (Special Issue of Nineteenth-Century Studies)

Special Issue of Nineteenth-Century Studies: Patchwork, Cut-and-Paste, Reassembly

This special issue will focus on ideas of reuse and recombination. How were bits and scraps of materials, textual and otherwise, reassembled into new forms in the nineteenth century? To what ends? Essays might consider these issues in relation to images, fabrics, texts, and more. Possible topics could include scrapbooks, patchwork, quotation, citation, illustration, and any and all forms of recombination. Approaches from all disciplines, including literature, art history, history, music, and the history of science and the social sciences, are welcome, as are submissions that cross national boundaries and/or range across the nineteenth century. One particularly exciting feature of Nineteenth-Century Studies is that the journal encourages authors to enhance their contributions with pertinent artwork.

Please submit manuscripts of 8,000-12,000 words, following NCS’s submission guidelines (http://english.selu.edu/ncs/submissions.php) to guest editor Casie LeGette at legette@uga.edu. Early expressions of interest and proposals of topics are also welcome. The initial deadline for submissions of full manuscripts is September 1, 2018, but review will begin June 1, 2018 and earlier submissions are encouraged.
