>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.
