This session examines the relationship between religion and American literature. In particular, it welcomes papers that explore the topic of theodicy in contemporary American literature. How have the events following 9/11, and the developments in post-secular and trauma studies made the question of theodicy a more vital, urgent topic in our contemporary moment? How has 9/11 transformed the ways in which Americans think about the problem of evil? How has this event and other acts of terror influenced our cultural imaginations of suffering and death? How have contemporary American writers contributed to the conversations about the presence or absence of God in suffering?

2019 marks the fiftieth anniversary of a historical period that arguably came to a close with the deaths at the Altamont Free Concert in 1969. The era of the hippie, or flower-power, or peace-and-love, has shaped our current times like few if any periods of such short duration.
