Call for Papers: Volume-IX

Critical Imprints (ISSN: 2319-4774)
Annual Peer-Reviewed Journal of the Department of English, Loreto College, Kolkata

This is a call for papers for inclusion in the 9th volume of Critical Imprints, a peer reviewed journal published annually by the Department of English, Loreto College. The focus of this issue is on scholarly examination of original women’s writing - autobiography, memoirs, diaries, travelogues and any other type of personal narrative in the 19th and 20th centuries.

At the close of this year, one thing has been well highlighted: that is the importance of women’s voices that have been shunted too long to the sidelines of important decisions concerning political and economic affairs and social welfare. We have seen that states and countries, where women have a say in these decisions, have consistently fared better during the pandemic. These women stand on the shoulders of many other women who had spoken up in earlier times and paved the way for them. It is these voices that this issue of Critical Imprints will feature.
