Fiction and Space

We invite submissions to a special number (July 1998) on the role and significance of space in eighteenth-century fiction. Manuscripts (not longer that 6,500 words) should reach us by 1 December 1997.

Considerations of any aspect of space in the fiction of the period are welcome: public and private spheres; economic or political productions of space; the relationship of physical and psychological space (including confinement and freedom); domestic architecture and spatial arrangements (including diagrams of the layout of rooms); conceptions of urban space (including streets and roads); parks, grounds, outbuildings; coaches, ships and other means of conveyance; abstract space; travel and return.

Manuscripts should be mailed to:
