Edited Collection: Cold War U.S. literature & culture with a global focus 2/15/2014

Sunday, December 29, 2013 - 5:59pm
Steven Belletto and Joseph Keith

We are soliciting one or two additional contributions (approx. 7,000 words) for a book collection focusing on U.S. Cold War literature and the rest of the world. Just as increasing attention has been given to the transnational turn in American Studies (Rowe) and to the idea of "postnationalist" identities (Pease), Cold War literary and cultural studies has become more interested in the effects of the global Cold War (in contrast to studies of domestic repression that tended to dominate the field in the 1990s).
