Call For Papers - David Foster Wallace Special Issue
Following his death in 2008, David Foster Wallace's literary reputation has been firmly consolidated. We can now talk about a distinct sub-discipline called Wallace Studies, as evidenced by the growing number of books, conferences, and journal articles on the writer, and enhanced by the publication of a posthumous novel and the establishment of an archive of his papers at the Harry Ransom Centre. Wallace's writing, both fiction and non-fiction, has helped to map the critical territory for debates on contemporary literature that have been taking place in both academic and non-academic settings.
We are pleased to announce that Orbit: Writing Around Pynchon –an open access, peer reviewed e-journal of scholarly work pertaining to the writings of Thomas Pynchon, related authors, and adjacent fields– will publish a special issue dedicated to David Foster Wallace.
