Exploration and Adventure in the 19th Century American West

ATQ announces a special issue for 2004 on exploration and adventure in the
nineteenth-century American West. This issue seeks to expand studies of
exploration and adventure in the American West in light of recent
developments in literary and cultural studies. This issue encourages
considerations of well-known and less well-known explorations and
adventures in the West.

Articles might engage questions such as:

How might a study of exploration and adventure help us to reconsider
relatively monolithic conceptions of the West as it relates to
masculinity, femininity, race, and ethnicity?

The European Journal of American Culture

In the next few months I will take over the editorship of EJAC from Professor
Richard Ellis of Nottingham Trent University, and would like to thank him for
all the work which he has put into the journal over so many years.

In addition to the staple fare of the journal (scholarly articles and book
reviews) the editorial team want to broaden the focus of the journal. In
particular we want to include spaces for comment and reply so that
developments in American culture can be highlighted and discussed as they are
happening rather than retrospectively.

       The editors of _American Heroes: Figures of Americana in Comics Books_
are now seeking submissions. _American Heroes_ is now under heavy
consideration from a major university press and will be a collection of
scholarly essays dealing with comic book figures with strongly American ties.
Essays should be essentially historicist in nature but can inculcate much
from Popular Culture and Critical Theory as they examine the mystique, charm,
and relevance of comic book figures distinctly American. Special emphasis
will be placed on essays exploring patriot-themed heroes (such as Captain
American or Sgt. Rock, for example). Many topics are available from the
