Hi, thanks very much for the info. I am a Taiwanese researcher working on Margaret Cavendish, and I would definitely try submitting my work to the journal.

Just a quick note: I have been to the original CFP website but found that the deadline of submission is 15 May 2007, not 15 June. Perhaps you could doublecheck by clicking the following link:

Many thanks,
