ABES Call for Contributors: 19th century section

Routledge are proud to announce the launch of the Routledge Annotated Bibliography of English Studies (ABES), a unique reference tool for those working in the field of English Literary Studies.

Routledge ABES is a specialised online bibliography providing annotated entries on all of the most significant research in literary studies published each year. It contains scholarly annotations on all the best new criticism, from which users can find out about a publication, how it might be of use to them, and whether it has particular strengths or weaknesses that would be relevant to their work. 

The database is organised around eight key sections: Medieval; Renaissance and Early Modern; Eighteenth Century; Romanticism; Nineteenth Century; Modernism; Postcolonial; Contemporary Literatures.

Routledge are currently inviting applications to contribute to the Nineteenth Century Section covering both American and British literature. As a contributor to Routledge ABES you would be called upon to create annotations to some of the best new research in literary studies, helping to provide an indispensable guide for the rest of the literary studies community. Your work would be fully acknowledged, with contributors able to provide a short biography and a link back to their own website, or profile.  Contributors to the nineteenth-century section are eligible t for travel grants to present at conferences or pursue their own research.

Each section is headed by a dedicated section editor, who edits and oversees the records in that section. If you are interested in becoming a contributor to Routledge ABES you can contact the Nineteenth Century section editor:

I am in particular need of Americanists, and of scholars in gender and sexuality, but I welcome contributors in all fields of 19C studies
