Call for Chapters: Edited collection on the writing of Marilynne Robinson

** This is the second call for chapters **

As part of the Manchester University Press series, Contemporary American and Canadian Writers, this volume will chart recent and emerging c

ritical opinion on the celebrated author, Marilynne Robinson. Having issued an earlier call for papers, the editors now seek proposals that specifically address the following areas:

  • Robinson and her contemporaries;
  • Robinson’s nonfiction writing;
  • Robinson and race;
  • Robinson’s role as a public intellectual;
  • Literary review culture, prize giving, and the production of “literary” fiction via the Iowa Writers’ Workshop;
  • Robinson’s engagement with history, particularly the ongoing relevance of the American Civil War, Reconstruction, and/or Civil Rights Movement to her work;
  • Robinson and US intellectual history.

Please email abstracts of no more than 300 words with your institutional affiliation and brief bio (c. 250 words) to robinsonsymposium@gmail.com no later than 15th September 2017.

All chapters will be subject to a blind peer review process and full details and submission guidelines will be provided to contributors on acceptance of proposals. Any queries should be sent to the editors at robinsonsymposium@gmail.com.
