NeMLA Annual Convention - Baltimore, MD 23-26 March 2017

Depression-era literature is often regarded in stark contrast to the periods that frame it—the 1920s and the postwar—which have been deemed altogether more compatible with each other both thematically and stylistically. American writers of the Thirties, as the story goes, tended to immerse themselves in the political culture of the period, eschewing modernist concerns in favor of deterministic narratives that offered scathing social criticism and echoed a leftist agenda. Indeed, the period has been critically defined by the work of writers like John Steinbeck, Jack Conroy, James Agee, Michael Gold, and Richard Wright and more generally by the mode of the proletarian genre.

Alphaville: Journal of Film and Screen Media
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 9, 2016

Issue 13 of Alphaville will focus on the renewed interest in race and identity on screen and in the media. These topics have received increasing attention in recent years, including a spate of films and mini-series chronicling episodes in black history from the past two hundred years, and are at the core of a growing public engagement with questions of civil rights and social justice, which most recently has sparked movements like Black Lives Matters in the aftermath of numerous deaths of black citizens at the hands of American police.
