Call for Papers: Reception

Call for Papers: Reception:
Texts, Readers, Audiences, History, vol. II

editors of Reception: Texts, Readers, Audiences, History, the journal
of the Reception Study Society, invite submissions for its second
issue, which will appear in the spring of 2010.

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. Vol. I is available on-line at the RSS website:

The journal is refereed and appears once each year on line. 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. Panelists from the RSS conferences are
especially encouraged to submit proposals. Please limit the proposals
to 500 words and send them to Philip Goldstein. His addresses are
pgold@udel.edu and the University of Delaware, 333 Shipley St., #309,
Wilmington, DE 19801.
