Cormac McCarthy and Ron Rash

In Ron Rash’s Serena (Pen/Faulkner Finalist 2009), one of the choric lumberjacks named Ballard makes an off-hand comment about a girl he sees in Tennessee.  Nearly lost in a welter of logger jokes and putdowns, readers of McCarthy’s Child of God would have not missed Rash’s darkly humorous intertextual nod.  McCarthy’s influence on the generations of writers who have followed in his wake has been immense.  This panel will consider one of two important aspects of the relations between McCarthy’s and Rash’s works.

Paper proposals solicited for The Melville Society ALA panel "Melville and Literary Influence: Reframing Tradition" at the next American Literature Association meeting (May 25-28, Boston). Emboldened by the innovative new work being done on the question of literary influence and intertextuality, this panel seeks papers that explore both Herman Melville's engagements with other writers and texts and the dynamics of influence and intertextual practice. While Melville's engagements with English literary tradition will no doubt be a central topic, the panel is open to the fullest range of possible topics related to these questions.

Thursday, October 6, 2016

We are looking for your contribution as part of our panel at the 2017 Asian American Studies Association taking place in Portland, Oregon, April 13–15, 2017. This panel seeks to bring together Asian American scholarship on the Vietnam War and Korean War to interrogate the workings of U.S. empire in Asia across the Cold War era and into the present. How did prior imperial formations, including Japanese and French colonialism, shape U.S. imperial interests in East and Southeast Asia? How did these wars interrupt processes of decolonization? What kinds of diasporas did they create? What has been the cultural memory of these wars in these diasporas? How has our understanding of one war informed the other?
