>Forum for Modern Language Studies
>Forthcoming Special Issue on Representations of the Past in European Memorials
>The Journal Forum for Modern Language Studies (OUP) will bring out a
>Special Issue entitled European Memorials, edited by Bill Niven
>(Professor of Contemporary German History, The Nottingham Trent
>University), in Autumn 2008. FMLS generally has a wide,
>cross-disciplinary readership, chiefly from from Modern Languages
>and English/Anglophone/American Studies backgrounds, as well as a
>more specialist audience for individual Special Issues.
>This special edition of FMLS will be dedicated to memorials.
>Contributors are sought who are undertaking research into the
>history, function and form of twentieth century European memorials.
>Ideally, contributions should focus on post-WW2 memorials. Articles
>on memorials that commemorate aspects of the Second World War will
>be especially welcome, as will be contributions on memorials whose
>focus is on memory of the Holocaust. Also very welcome will be
>articles analysing memorials dedicated to national victimhood,
>national heroes/acts of heroism (e.g. resistance), and national
>achievements. The editor is looking to put together a volume in
>which there is discussion of memorials from a variety of European
>countries. Articles comparing memorials across several countries are
>particularly welcome. Contributions can feature discussion of
>several memorials, or concentrate mainly on one or two, provided
>this is done on a 'case-study' basis. To give the volume unity as
>well as a truly European profile, the editors would ask contributors
>to reflect in their discussion on the relationship between
>memorials, collective memory and national identity.
>Prospective contributors are invited to send proposals for articles
>in the form of a 300-word abstract as soon as possible and at all
>events before 1 November 2006, and will be asked to submit articles
>in final form by the strict deadline of 31 August 2007. Articles
>should be around 5,000 words long, including footnotes, and must
>conform to the FMLS stylesheet, available on request.
>Informal enquiries are most welcome, and the editor will be happy to
>discuss individual suggestions. Communications via e-mail are
>preferred, to [log in to unmask]; or write to Professor Bill
>Niven, School of Arts, Communication and Culture, The Nottingham
>Trent University, Clifton Campus, Nottingham NG11 8NS. Articles
>which do not find a place in the Special Issue will be considered
>for general issues of FMLS, of which there are 2 per year.
