We are seeking offers to contribute to a collection, provisionally entitled: Monsters in the Mirror:
Representations of Nazism in Post-War Popular Culture. The collection aims to bring together an
interdisciplinary range of studies on the perennial fascination with all things ‘Nazi’ in the modern
world. As teachers of the history of Nazi Germany, we are astonished by the lack of critical
attention paid to the proliferation of Nazi symbols, Nazi culture, Nazi ideology, and
characterisations of Hitler in the post-war era. Nazidom remains an obsession for many even
though more than sixty years have passed since the demise of Hitler’s regime. The archetypal

The ’hood has come to embody both the utopian and dystopian aspects of
low-income urban areas. It represents a collective sense of community as
well as a marginalized and often criminalized space/place. The popularity
of the term “’hood” (slang for neighbourhood) is generally associated with
the emergence of hip-hop culture. Today, however, the term encompasses much
more than the young, predominantly black subculture from which it originated.

As the position of the US in the world community is increasingly
contested, American literature faces both challenges and opportunities.
How is the literature of the U.S. viewed by non-Americans? How do
canonical works offer a different view of the U.S. from that of non-
canonical works? What are the unique cultural situations that affect how
American literature is read and understood? How are individual texts or
authors viewed? These questions are also relevant in thinking about the
historical reception of texts, for example, the reception abroad of
Frederick Douglass or Nathaniel Hawthorne.
