Second half of twentieth century sees literary criticism interpreting the role of history, itself subject to interpretations bearing upon the kind of notion one has of history, as one of the dominant modes of creating ‘literature’ along with the persona of the artist. Oscar Wilde says that, “an artist is not an isolated fact, he is the resultant of a certain milieu and a certain entourage” – an assessment which is foregrounded in rise of the intellectual movements of Historicism, New Historicism, and Cultural Materialism during late 1970s USA and early 1980s Britain.

Vernon Press invites chapter proposals on Disability and the Academic Job Market. The volume will be edited by Christopher McGunnigle, Seton Hall University.

 

Securing a position as a full time tenure track professor is difficult enough but even more so for people with a disability. Despite an increased call for applicants from marginalized populations, people with a disability are more quickly eliminated as potential candidates for full time academic employment, either through direct discrimination or from ablest conventions of the job interview process.
