As we are planning a second publication with original contributions dealing with Fakes, Forgeries & Issues of Authenticity in Classical Literature, it would be a pleasure if you could make a contribution on this broad topic. Of particular, but by no means exclusive interest, would be papers in the following areas:
- Epistolographic Fakes and Forgeries
- Historiographic Fakes and Forgeries.
- Authorship and authority.
- Anonymity and Pseudonymity.
- Forgery of Literary texts, documents.
The book will attempt to explore the various aspects implied by the subject in the fields of literature, critical theory, aesthetics, history, political science and linguistics. This volume aims to constitute an all-embracing outcome of recent research on these topics, thus reflecting the spirit of coherence and openness that has characterized our Research Group (Madrid and Oviedo) since its original formation.
Manuscripts (Word) should be submitted no later than December 31, 2011 via email.
Papers should not exceed 20 type-written double-spaced pages (or 6,000 words); endnotes, tables, figures included, should follow the MLA citation style. Book and journal titles should be italicized.
Publication of selected papers is planned for 2012.
