Society for Contemporary Literature

The Society for Contemporary Literature, a group dedicated to the study of literature of the last 25 years, invites 300-word abstracts for presentations at the Frontiers & Borders in American Literature Symposium of the American Literature Assoc. We encourage scholars to think broadly about culture and its relationship to contemporary literature. In her recent book Beyond the Borders: American Literature and Post-Colonial Theory, Deborah L. Madsen posits, "We are naturalizing inherited concepts of American cultural identity as being equivalent with the US. Not only the canon of 'American Literature' but perhaps especially the authors, texts, and traditions excluded from that dominant cultural category carry the burden of America's colonial history.
