Dear Colleagues,

Submissions are currently being accepted for an anthology of Appalachian nature writing, tentatively titled Appalachian Nature. While there are locale-specific nature writing anthologies, this will be the first to focus on the entire Appalachian region.

Fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and one-act plays are welcomed and demographics traditionally underrepresented in Appalachian literature are encouraged to submit. While all contributions should engage with the Appalachian environment specifically, possible topics or themes include, but are certainly not limited to, the following:

-Travel narratives

-Bucolic nature

-Disability and the environment

-Animal studies

As our daily lives have grown more and more dominated by technology and by a corresponding fascination with the “new,” there’s been a counter movement interested in reexamining the ways of “the past.”  Whether it is handmade books, craft-made pickles, vintage automobiles, or handlebar mustaches, indeed the cliché often seems true now: what’s old is new again.

"If I were to go to Japan": Theory and practice of travel in Henry James and beyond

 

ALA Conference, May 25-28, 2017, Boston

She looked up from her book. “What you despise most in the world is bad, is stupid art.”

“Possibly. But yours seem to me very clear and very good.”

“If I were to go to Japan next winter you would laugh at me,” she went on.

Osmond gave a smile—a keen one, but not a laugh, for the tone of their conversation was not jocose.

 

Late Modernism in the American Scene (MSA 19, Amsterdam)

Recent scholarship has employed the term “late modernism” to describe a set of wide-ranging changes to English national culture, in and after the 1930s: a sense of the British Empire’s imminent decline, a necessary reaction to global war, and a growing intellectual reconciliation between politics and art, exemplified by the Mass Observation movement. Modernist studies, however, has not yet established such a guiding narrative for late modernism in the United States. This panel offers a platform for considering what late modernism might look like in the American scene, from the Depression of the 1930s to the upheavals of the 1960s.
