original organizers to create an event dedicated to scrutinizing these
moments of connection and disconnection.

a special issue of Early American Literature
co-edited by Justine S. Murison (UIUC) and Jordan Alexander Stein (CU- Boulder)

American studies scholarship. As such, secular frameworks for American
literary and cultural studies no longer seem viable. Panels at national
and regional meetings of the MLA and ASA are devoted to contemporary
