CFP: The child and crime in British fiction

"Essay proposals are invited for a proposed volume of critical essays on the child and crime in British fiction. Essays should focus centrally on the child, children, or childhood in relation to crime and might consider the child as perpetrator, object, victim, witness, or solver of crime or as inspiration or instigator of crime. The collection aims to assess the role of preadolescent child characters (i.e. not teenagers) in relation to crime in British fiction from its origins to the present. Proposals are welcomed on single authors or on topics which range across writers, subgenres or periods of British fiction.
We envisage that completed essays will be 6,000-words long and due in January 2011."
Submission deadline for abstracts: September 15, 2010.
