Call for Proposals | Companion to 18th-Century Literary Illustration

Posted in Calls for Papers by Editor on December 16, 2016

A Companion to Eighteenth-Century Literary Illustration, Volume I: Approaches
Edited by Leigh G. Dillard and Christina Ionescu

Proposals due by 20 January 2017

Proposals are invited for the first installment in a multi-volume collection, titled A Companion to Eighteenth-Century Literary Illustration. The first volume is designed for students and established researchers seeking an introduction to approaches in this field; it can also be used for book illustration scholars seeking to extend their theoretical and methodological tool kit. Contributions should provide an introduction to pertinent theoretical terms and concepts, a practical demonstration, and suggestions for further reading. When possible, examples should be chosen from more than one national tradition. We invite proposals on the following topics to fill gaps in our existing commitments:
• Book illustration and consumer culture
• Book illustration and fashion studies/costume studies
• Book illustration and visual rhetoric

Please send 300–500 word proposals to Christina Ionescu (cionescu@mta.ca) and Leigh Dillard (leigh.dillard@ung.edu) by January 20, 2017. The deadline for the submission of completed chapters will be December 15, 2017.
