Michel-Rolph Trouillot closed his 1995 Silencing the Past by reminding us that “History doesn’t belong only to its narrators, professional or amateur. While some of us debate what history is or was, others take it in their own hands.” This is nowhere more true than in two historical periods seldom in conversation - the 11th-century phenomenon called the Crusades, and the 19th-century American Civil War. Scholars across disciplines seek to clarify these periods among themselves, while popular audiences voraciously consume these and other retellings of the past, and others “take it in their own hands” by toppling monuments or explicitly evoking these periods as direct predecessors of their own.

Citizenship and American Literature

This session seeks papers that explore the concept of citizenship in hemispheric American literature. The scale and severity of the current immigration crisis in the United States presses us to reconsider how the category of citizenship produces exclusions and abuses that arise from our national imaginary. Thus, we seek papers that broaden our understanding of citizenship beyond the spatially-bounded to better grasp the range of categories that bestow and rescind national belonging. Recent work, such as Carrie Hyde’s Civic Longing: The Speculative Origins of U.S. Citizenship, reframes citizenship as an imaginative longing that sutures the legal concept of the citizen to the cultural work of fiction.
