Three calls for papers from

jml: Journal of Modern Literature


JML publishes cultural studies and criticism of literature in all languages,
as well as related arts and cultural artifacts, from 1900 to the present.


Editors:  Robert L. Caserio, Paula Marantz Cohen, Rachel Blau DuPlessis,
Janet Lyon, Daniel T. O’Hara, and Jean-Michel Rabaté


CFP: African-American Poetry and Poetics

JML is interested in receiving articles with a special emphasis on poetry,
poetics and cultural studies in African-American contexts. There are many
topics that could be broached, including Black theory and criticism of
poetry, cultural studies and African-American modernism, jazz and poetry,
and the work of specific practitioners from modernism through the
contemporary period (e.g. Lorenzo Thomas, Gwendolyn Brooks).


CFP: The Pedagogy of Modernist Texts 

JML is interested in receiving informed critical analyses of the challenges
and opportunities involved in teaching modernist movements, figures and
texts, with particular focus on important questions of historical,
political, theoretical and/or formal contexts and concerns.


CFP: Translation Studies

We welcome papers on translation studies, with a particular interest on the
translation of American texts into Chinese and of Chinese texts into English
for American readers. What kind of literature may result if these world
powers become conversant in each other's literatures? What are the
challenges, imbalances, and theoretical issues confronting transnational/
translational exchange in general?   We are looking for papers that connect
translation to issues of power and cultural identity, as well as papers that
address translation from other angles, both practical and theoretical.



Submission period: June 1, 2012 through December 31, 2012. 


Papers should conform to the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers,
7th edition, and should be accompanied by a 100-150 word abstract and 3-5
keywords. Submissions should not exceed 9,000 words total. JML does not
consider manuscripts that are under review elsewhere or that have been
previously published. 

Submit electronic copies of anonymous manuscripts (in Word or RTF format)
via e-mail to: Laurel Garver at jml.editorial at gmail.com.
