Although the phenomenon of World War I trauma, particularly shell shock, greatly influenced both British and American literary modernism, the trauma, and its reception, was different on each side of the Atlantic, both in its scale and its quality. This panel seeks essays on both British and American literary and cultural representations of World War I trauma, particularly shell shock. Essays that compare and contrast the American and British experiences and representations of shell shock are particularly welcome, and will be given special consideration.

From state-sponsored propaganda to cartoons, photography, and cinema newsreels, the cultural and political work done in service of modern warfare is significantly visual. At the same time (and despite considerable efforts to also subdue this aspect of war), much of the material reality depicted is inescapably explicit and brutal: broken bodies, destroyed cities, devastated natural environments.

Discourses of Instability, Inclusion, and Exclusion in the Trump Era

Papers are welcome that address the destabilizing of language and discourse practices, particularly in the inclusion and exclusion of various constituencies, in the Trump Era. These practices may range from micro-level ones, such as inclusive/exclusive pronoun strategies, to macro-level ones, such as the explosion of fake news and the semiotic challenges posed by it to the representation of politics and policies.
