Call for Papers: Reception: Texts, Readers,
The editors of Reception: Texts, Readers, Audiences, History, the journal of the Reception Study Society, invite submissions for its upcoming issues, which will appear in 2013 and 2014.
The journal seeks to promote dialog and discussion among scholars in several related fields: reader-response criticism and pedagogy, reception study, history of reading and the book, audience, media/textual, and communication studies, institutional studies and histories, as well as interpretive strategies related to feminism, race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and postcolonial studies. The journal publishes theoretical and practical analyses in these fields, focusing mainly but not exclusively on the literature, culture, and media of England and the United States. Issues I-III are available on-line at the RSS website: http://receptionstudy.org/
The journal is published by Pennsylvania State University Press, which provides print copies and on-line distribution through JStor and Project Muse. The journal is refereed and appears once each year. At least two members of the editorial board will provide independent reports on each essay submitted for publication. Contributors will receive these reports in a timely fashion. Papers should follow MLA guidelines and should not exceed 6,000 words.
