      New Comparative Central European Culture
      Call for Papers Deadline:2002-12-31

      New Comparative Central European Culture.
      Ed. Steven Totosy.

      Papers are invited for a collected volume on contemporary Central European
      To be published in 2003 in the Purdue University Press series of Books in
      Comparative Cultural Studies (series editor is Steven Totosy ), the volume
      will contain new work in the field.

      The book will be the second volume with work about Central European culture
      in the series, following Comparative Central European Culture (2002, see
      below). A contested notion, the concept of a Central European culture is
      constructed based on real or imagined and variable similarities emanating
      from historical, social, and cultural characteristics apparent in cultures
      ranging from Austria and the former East Germany to Romania and Bulgaria and
      Serbia to the Ukraine, etc., thus including the Habsburg lands and their
      spheres of influence at various times of history including now.

      With the tentative title of New Comparative Central European Culture, the
      book will contain work that is implicitly or explicitly comparative,
      following the notions proposed in comparative cultural studies at . That is,
      instead of the single-language and culture approach, the authors of the
      papers in the volume will discuss topics in at least two cultures of the
      Central European landscape or any other literary, media, communication,
      politics, economics, etc., topic that fits the proposed framework of
      comparative cultural studies. As well, papers on theory and methodology
      engaging notions of/in comparative cultural studies as applied in the study
      of Central European culture are invited.

      Papers should be between 6000-7000 words, in the MLA style of parenthetical
      sources and works cited but without footnotes or end notes. The deadline of
      submission is flexible but no later than December 2002. Please send papers
      to Steven Totosy at .
