The inaugural issue of Volupté for Spring 2018 will be on the theme of voluptuousness in the context of Decadence, ancient and modern. The editors invite a variety of interpretations of this theme, but are particularly interested in contributions that explore the voluptuous body, voluptuous beauty, or voluptuous form in Decadent literature and visual art. Submissions might, for example, focus on the figure of the Decadent voluptuary or correlated notions of luxuriousness, sensuality, and indulgence. Volupté is a site where critical and creative contributions to the field are published together, and so the editors welcome poems and translations alongside scholarly essays and reviews.
Deadline for submissions (to firstname.lastname@example.org) is 31 December 2017. See https://volupte.gold.ac.uk/guidelines/ for guidelines.
