Wharton and the Culture of the Monthly Magazine

Papers are sought that investigate Wharton’s engagement with the culture of the monthly magazine, including critiques of readers and reading in Wharton’s work as well as contextual studies of publications in periodicals. Papers might also offer new information about Wharton’s relations with individual magazines—she published in more than twenty—and/or consider the history of Wharton’s dealings with editors and publishers in the context of Laura Stevens’s call to attend to “questions of authority, canonicity, the means of textual production, and other questions central to feminist literary scholarship.” Please send proposal (250-500 words) and a short CV to Paul Ohler, paul.ohler@kpu.ca.
