The Wenshan Review of Literature and Culture
Vol. 11. No. 2 (June 2018)
Due on 30 June 2017
Transatlantic Literary and Cultural Relations, 1776 to the Present

Guest Editors: Dr Li-hsin Hsu (National Chengchi University, Taiwan) and  Dr Andrew Taylor (University of Edinburgh, UK)

This special issue seeks essays of 6,000 to 10,000 words engaged in debate around historical, cultural and literary issues in the Atlantic World. Whilst national narratives have often sought to assert the truth of universal values, a more self-conscious focus upon the methodological framework of the transnational Atlantic world concerns itself explicitly with ways in which diverse and competing local or national paradigms might contest the kinds of ideological assumptions that underwrite narratives of progress, civilisation and modernity. The editors are keen to receive submissions that   explore what happens when the assumptions of a nationalistic model of doing literary and cultural criticism, in which geography is allegorised as the autonomous locus of all possible meaning, are challenged by forms of encounter and contagion that disrupt and expand our frames of interpretation. How might the Atlantic space map a series of textual disruptions and contagions during the period? In what ways does transatlanticism open up possibilities for thinking about literary comparison as a critical practice? How do the crossings of people, objects and ideas complicate our sense of literary and intellectual inheritance? What kinds of relationship does the Atlantic world have with other spatial paradigms—the Pacific, the Orient, Australasia? The essays in this special issue seek to explore the meshed networks of interaction—aesthetic, ideological, material—that constitute the space of Atlantic exchange. This, we hope, will result in a wide-ranging, geographically diverse collection that displays much of the best research being undertaken in this exciting and vibrant field.

Possible areas of interest may include, but are not limited to:
* ecology and landscape
* migration and travel
* nature and nation
* Asia/Orientalism and transatlanticism
* social reform
* class and conflict
* gender and sexuality
* art and aesthetics
