The Indiana College English Association (ICEA) has been invited to represent English studies in Indiana University’s celebration of its 200-year history of intellectual capital, which also provides a venue for Indiana’s academic societies to celebrate their own intellectual capital. Next year is significant for ICEA as well, as it marks 85 years since we began hosting academic conferences. 

How to Read Conspiracy Theories: Forms, Styles, Narratives (Edited Collection)

Most second-hand bookstores have one or two shelves for books that have been categorized as “Conspiracy Theories.” Such books are deemed too inaccurate to count as “History,” too unacademic to qualify as “Sociology,” or too fringe to be shelved as “Politics.” The “Conspiracy Theories” shelf is a tangible reminder of conspiracism’s epistemological status as “stigmatized knowledge” (Barkun, 2003).

People will be able to liberate themselves only after the legal superstructure itself has begun to wither away. And when we begin to overcome and to do without these [juridical] concepts in reality, rather than merely in declarations, that will be the surest sign that the narrow horizon of bourgeois law is finally opening up before us.

--Anthony P. Farley, “Perfecting Slavery”

Photo-Texts and the Mapping of American Lives

Panel CFP for American Literature Association, San Diego, May 21-24, 2020

From How the Other Half Lives to Humans of New York, American authors have long interwoven photos and writing to theorize and map the modern United States and the people who inhabit it. Scholars such as Sara Blair have analyzed how place-based photo-texts produce “emergent iconograph[ies] of modern experience” (How the Other Half Looks), while others, like Jeff Allred and Joseph Entin, have suggested how modernist photo-texts offer new ways of conceptualizing crossovers between realism and modernism, the political meanings and effects of documentary, and the ethics of the gaze.
