Call for Articles: Affect and the Short Story (Cycle)

The Journal of the Short Story in English announces a call for articles for an upcoming special section—“Affect and the Short Story (Cycle)”. The guest editors are interested in articles addressing how the field of Affect Studies can help inform the ways we read short stories and the ways we theorize about formal and generic labels like the Short Story and, especially, the Short Story Cycle.
