>Call for Papers: The Limits of History
>
>Essays are invited for a collection entitled The Limits of History, to be
>co-edited by Allen Dunn and
>Thomas Haddox. This volume is guided by the assumption that the current
>dominance of historicist
>approaches to literary study has often distorted the discipline, that
>historical methodology as it has
>been applied in contemporary literary scholarship is often heedless of its own
>methodological
>inconsistency, blind to its dependence on other disciplines, and incapable of
>clearly articulating many
>of its own most deeply held values.  The essays in this volume will address
>the flaws of literary
>historicism as it is currently practiced and suggest more productive roles for
>historical scholarship with
>the ultimate purpose of clarifying the goals and values of literary study.  We
>welcome contributions that
>will draw on a variety of fields, including aesthetics, ethics, theology, the
>sciences, and history,
>especially new and alternative visions of historical research. We are looking
>for essays that engage
>rather than ignore the challenge presented by contemporary historicism and
>that offer theoretically
>supported alternatives to what has become the new disciplinary orthodoxy.
>
>Completed essays (5,000-8,000 words) are due by March 1, 2007. Please send
>essays to Thomas
