How did important texts from the postwar period frame the suburbs as a locus of refuge, anger, hysteria, or (even) self-realization at a moment when American cities themselves experienced a shifting and growing economy, African American rights protests, atomic fears, etc.? How did the suburban aesthetic, the collision of romantic and realist, and spatial concepts including place, space, geography, zones, neighborhoods, distance, and scale feature in suburban narrative? We welcome all papers treating the suburban experience, as this approached or averted the apocalyptic, in American texts, 1945-1975.

Post45 Graduate Student Symposium
February 5 & 6, 2016
Keynote Speech by Danielle Christmas
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill English Department seeks graduate-level works-in-progress in post-1945 American literature and culture.
We have extended the deadline for this special issue of the journal. Next year marks the 500th anniversary of Sir Thomas More's seminal work, Utopia. Although the text has been of importance within Renaissance Studies and political philosophy, it has also occupied a special place within science fiction for helping to popularise the notion of 'the Great Good Place' to which society should strive to perfect. Whether directly or indirectly, More's text has been of huge significance for the utopian strand that runs through much science fiction.
We invite contributors to submit 6000 word articles on any aspect of More's text and its relationship to modern and contemporary science fiction. Topics might include (but are not limited to):
