Over the past few years, scholars such as Veronica Watson, Gene Andrew Jarrett, Stephanie Brown, and James C. Charles have provided much needed insight regarding Yerby's first novel The Foxes of Harrow (1946) and its follow up The Vixens (1947). This work adds to the scholarship of James L. Hill.

Disability studies has a problem with representation. Michael Bérubé locates the roots of this problem in two dominant trajectories of literary disability studies. The first trajectory largely pursues a logic of identification and revelation, a tactic for demonstrating the ubiquity of disabled characters and the overwhelmingly negative thematics attached to their peripheral bodyminds. The second trajectory depends on diagnosing characters as disabled that have not been explicitly designated as such.

We know the four tenets of True Womanhood and understand the Feminine Mystique. But, today, what gender role prescriptions still proliferate concerning domesticity and work, family affairs and public relationships? Anne-Marie Slaughter tells us women still can’t have it all. Barbara Spar shreds the Superwoman myth. But, Ariana Huffington tells us we can THRIVE if we just have the third metric. These three notably professional women have differing views. Can and should women decorate like the Gaines, cook like the Barefoot Contessa, thrive professionally like Huffington, be sexy as Kim Kardashian, not miss kids’ soccer practices, and all the while smiling? Has or can contemporary women break out of the American ideological boundaries?

The interdisciplinary field of the environmental humanities offers new ways of considering tropical disasters.  Hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis and similar incidents were once thought to be acts of God or isolated natural occurrences.  New eco-critical approaches to the field, however, challenge the separation between human activity and environmental events.
