Call for Book Chapters for the Edited Collection: Marginalized Women and Work in 20th- and 21st-Century British and American Literature and Media
As Carroll Pursell suggests in Technology in Postwar America, technology enabled America to develop global prominence in the 20th century. And in seems poised to do the same in the 21st.

This special issue examines the role of literature and criticism in addressing poverty and dispossession. In a 2009 Inside Higher Ed op-ed, Keith Gandal predicted that the economic crisis would lead to literary studies finally putting “poverty near the top of the agenda and the center of the field.” Ten years later, poverty has become a focus of scholarship in the social sciences, particularly geography, anthropology, sociology, and critical legal studies. Yet the topic remains stubbornly marginal to literary studies, even though qualitative social scientific methods have been taken up in the discipline as never before.
