This is a call for papers to be published in an edited book on the rise of “feminist” literature in the postwar period. The editors are particularly interested in how British women authors have responded to patriarchal practices. This book will explore how the work of women writers like Doris Lessing, Muriel Spark, Angela Carter, Iris Murdoch, Margaret Drabble, Sarah Grand, Mary Cholmondely, Olive Schreiner, Hilary Mantel, Michele Roberts, Joanna Trollope, Fay Weldon and Jeanette Winterson (among others) has challenged the hegemonic practices of a gender-biased society.
DEADLINE: November 1st, 2012
Submissions are to be sent to editors Dr. Vivekanand Jha and Ajit Kumar at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more details on submission requirements, please consult our CFPs page!
