CFP: Edith Wharton Review (deadline: on-going).

The Edith Wharton Review, a peer-reviewed, MLA-indexed journal is currently seeking submissions.

It publishes traditional criticism, pedagogical scholarship, essays on archival materials, review essays, and book reviews. The Review aims to foster emerging scholars and new approaches to Wharton studies as well as established scholarly approaches.

Recent special issues include “_The Custom of the Country at 100″ and “Teaching Edith Wharton’s Late Fiction.” Opportunities exist to publish on Wharton’s lesser-known works, as well as her more canonical writings.

If you are interested in submitting, please contact Meredith Goldsmith, Editor (mgoldsmith@ursinus.edu). Submissions should be 20-25 pages, and prepared according to the _MLA Style Manual_.

Enquiries welcome.

Study Groups: SSAWW-NW (Pacific Northwest) call for topics for Fall 2014 meeting

Hi, everyone,

I’m working on putting together a study group for SSAWW-NW here in the fall in Spokane.  Does anyone have any work they’d like to preview or discuss in particular?  If not, I can choose something, but I thought I’d open this up just in case.

Please reply to ldamico@whitworth.edu.

Thanks!

Hench Post-Dissertation Fellowship 2015-16 (Deadline: 10.15.14)

Scholars who are no more than three years beyond receipt of the doctorate are invited to apply for the 2015-16 Hench Post-Dissertation Fellowship, a year-long residential fellowship at the American Antiquarian Society. The purpose of the post-dissertation fellowship is to provide the recipient with time and resources to extend research and/or to revise the dissertation for publication. Any topic relevant to the Society’s library collections and programmatic scope, and coming from any field or disciplinary background, is eligible. AAS collections focus on all aspects of American history, literature, and culture from contact through 1876, and provide rich source material for projects across the spectrum of early American studies.

The Society welcomes applications from those who have advance book contracts, as well as those who have not yet made contact with a publisher. The twelve-month stipend for this fellowship is $35,000; the fellowship also includes reimbursement of up to $4,000 to cover health insurance costs. The Hench Post-Dissertation Fellow will be selected on the basis of the applicant’s scholarly qualifications, the appropriateness of the project to the Society’s collections and interests, and, above all, the likelihood that the revised dissertation will make a highly significant book.

Further information about the fellowship, along with application materials, is available on the AAS website, at http://www.americanantiquarian.org/post-diss.htm. Any questions about the fellowship may be directed to Paul Erickson, Director of Academic Programs at AAS, at perickson@mwa.org.

The deadline for applications for a Hench Post-Dissertation Fellowship to be held during the 2015-2016 academic year is October 15, 2014.
