Call for Book Chapters: Mythical Animals in the Renaissance | cfp.english.upenn.edu

by Jessica C. Murphy

We are putting together a collaborative volume on mythical animals in the Renaissance. In this dawning age of science, did people really believe in their reality? It is common to see science and myth coexist in literature, scientific and philosophical treatises, travel journals, curiosity cabinets, etc. Where was the boundary between the real and the fabulous, the plausible and the implausible? We are inviting contributions to our volume. Please send papers up to 13,000 words to iiakouni@kent.edu and jfujitani@apu.edu by February 15, 2011.
