Crisis in Contemporary British Fiction (edited volume)
Thursday, May 20, 2021 - 7:49am
Anastasia Logotheti
deadline for submissions:
Monday, May 31, 2021
This collection of critical essays explores how contemporary British authors engage with the theme of crisis in their fiction (as apparent in novels and short stories by Kazuo Ishiguro, Julian Barnes, A S Byatt, Ian McEwan, Graham Swift, Hilary Mantel, Zadie Smith, Pat Barker, Martin Amis, among others.)

‘Crisis’ can be investigated not only as informing any aspect of fiction involving sociopolitical and cultural systems, but also as a mode of challenge to established power structures and modes of representationacross narrative traditions.

Submissions should focus on one or more of the aforementioned major contemporary British authors (though you are welcome to propose additional British authors who explore the theme of crisis).
