NeMLA 2020: The Politics of ‘Post’ in American Literature

updated: 
Wednesday, July 10, 2019 - 3:00am
Meghan Burns and Kelly Mahaffy, University of Connecticut
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

In a 2009 article in American Literary History, Richard Gray critiqued the production of post-9/11 novels, writing that such literary works “simply assimilate the unfamiliar into familiar structures.” Yet scholarly work on contemporary U.S. fiction seems to return again and again to a focus on literary production in terms of its relationship to the 2001 tragedy. In this panel, we seek to interrogate the way the concept of “post” has come to influence and, perhaps, even define the American literary canon.

On the Edge: Essays on the Representations and Images of Frontiers and Borders in Literature

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

We are looking for contributors to our edited volume, tentatively titled On the Edge: Essays on the Representations and Images of Frontiers and Borders in Literature. We would like to invite submissions considering the keywords of “frontier” and “border” in a literary context, and we are particularly interested in proposals that would give a new, unexpected meaning to these words. The frontier emerged as an important critical concept for an understanding of American history over a hundred years ago, and its status has changed from a celebrated catchphrase to explain away the perplexities of American identity, through an F-word not tolerated in the progressive circles, leading finally to a rehabilitated, more inclusive use.
