SHAW 32 will be a theme issue devoted to “Shaw and the City,” with Desmond Harding as guest editor.

The editor welcomes contributions from a variety of perspectives that speak to Shaw’s diverse representations of urban modernity. Inquiries and manuscript submissions should be sent to him at or mailed to Dr. Desmond Harding, Department of English Language and Literature, Central Michigan University, Anspach 224, Mount Pleasant, MI 48859.
