Ifm happy to say that BRANCH continues to develop, which means that exciting links and topic clusters continue to form: the newly published article by Ghislaine McDayter on Godwinfs Memoirs of the Author of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, for example, links up nicely with Anne Mellor on Wollstonecraftfs A Vindication, one of the first essays published in BRANCH; Dane Kennedyfs newly published gSearch for the Nileh links up nicely with Matthew Rubery on Henry Morton Stanleyfs Search for Dr. Livingstone (and there are more articles on Africa still to come); BRANCH also now has two articles that think metacritically about the difficulty of even establishing a date for an 'event,' though they are discussing rather disparate things: Mary Favret on the Napoleonic Wars and Garrett Stewart on the first London film projections. Over the next year and a half, these articles will be joined by forthcoming essays by Marjorie Levinson, Catherine Gallagher, Herbert F. Tucker, and Helena Michie. To bring these articles together, I've created a new topic cluster infelicitously titled 'meta-critical discussions of event or temporality.'
So far, 72 of a promised 300+ articles are in various stages of peer-review, revision, or copy-editing; 33 articles have now been published.
Articles that have been published since my last email about BRANCH include:
* Mary Favret (Indiana U), "The Napoleonic Wars"
* Margaretta S. Frederick (Delaware Art Museum), gOn Frederic Shieldsf Chapel of the Ascension, 1887-1910
* Dane Kennedy (George Washington U), gThe Search for the Nileh
