CALL FOR PAPERS

An Anthology Concerning the Role of Nature and the Environment in Film and
Television Representations of the American West(s)

The first "westerns" were filmed in the wilderness of New Jersey and then

use of western landscape (Monument Valley, etc.), the "role" of nature in
film and television westerns, how western environment affects presentation of
regional character and dramatic characters, and how the natural world has
been constructed, both figuratively and -- a sound stage or through creative
cinematography.

Special Issue: Philip Roth's America

For an upcoming special issue of _Studies in American Jewish Literature_
(slotted for 2004), I am seeking critical essays devoted to Philip
Roth's recent exploration of American life in the last half of the
20th-century. This "American trilogy," as it has been called by his
publisher, includes the novels _American Pastoral_, _I Married a
Communist_, and _The Human Stain_. Consideration may also be given to
essays focusing on his other later works, such as _Sabbath's Theatre_

socio-historical articulation of American identity. Topics for
