In her 2008 Massey Lectures, Margaret Atwood calls debt "that peculiar nexus where money, narrative or story, and religious belief intersect, often with explosive force." Today, we are facing an explosion of discourses foregrounding financial debt. Whether in the Euro Zone Debt Crisis, the Occupy Wall Street Movement, or rising student loan debt, narrative and debt cannot be decoupled, nor can they be detached from a given political or affective investment. In addition to the obvious economic concerns, we are also interested in widening the discussion of debt: How do literature and cultural products help us make sense of these issues?

"Violence commands both literature and life, and violence is often crude and distorted."
– Ellen Glasgow
Violence is an ever-present phenomenon in literary texts. From Homer's graphic descriptions of infantry combat in the Iliad, to Wilfred Owen's haunting portrayal of the war-torn fields of Europe, to Edith Wharton's subtle critique of Old New York as a place of ruthless social warfare, representations of violence powerfully call our attention to questions of authority, agency and power.
