CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS FOR VOLUME 9 OF

Katherine Mansfield Studies

 (THE PEER-REVIEWED YEARBOOK OF THE KATHERINE MANSFIELD SOCIETY)

 KATHERINE MANSFIELD AND RUSSIA

Guest Editor: Professor Galya Diment (University of Washington, Seattle, US)

Katherine Mansfield’s passion for Russian literature and culture is well known. Anton Chekhov was not just her most significant literary influence, he was a mythological presence with whom she felt a close bond. Indeed, this emotional bond became even stronger when she discovered the two of them shared not just similar artistic sensibilities but also the same deadly disease – tuberculosis. While Chekhov reigned supreme in Mansfield’s world, several other Russian writers, and Russia in general, fascinated her for most of her adult life. This volume seeks essay submissions that engage with all aspects of Mansfield’s response to Russian literature, culture and history, as well as to the Russians she met in England and France.
