                                                       CFP: Russia in American Literature

13 July 2017

The British Library, London

2017 will mark the anniversary of the Russian Revolution, one of the defining events of the past century. The conference ‘Russia in American Literature’ aims to explore the literary relationship between Russia and the United States during the long twentieth century. From the influence of Soviet literary criticism on the American writers associated with the Left during the 1930s, to the spy fictions of the Cold War, we aim to examine how the politics and culture of Russia and the Soviet Union have been represented and reimagined in American literary texts.

Reform in the Progressive Era: A Primer in Dissent

updated: 
Friday, January 13, 2017 - 2:43pm
Proposed Panel for ASA 2017 in Chicago
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 15, 2017

Reform—a term, activity, or idea dedicated to dissent from existing conditions—is also, history demonstrates, slippery in its ambivalence. As the setting for both Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle and Hull House’s historical founding, Chicago has long been associated with activism and reform in the Progressive Era. Yet violent conflicts like the Haymarket Affair and Chicago Race Riots of 1919 made manifest continuing racial and class-based divisions and attested to the limits of so-called progressive social reform in this time/place.
