“Meaning is a shaky edifice we build out of scraps, dogmas, childhood injuries, newspaper articles, chance remarks, old films, small victories, people hated, people loved; perhaps it is because our sense of what is the case is constructed from such inadequate materials that we defend it so fiercely, even to death.”

Citizenship and American Literature

updated: 
Monday, September 17, 2018 - 4:09pm
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

This session seeks papers that explore the concept of citizenship in hemispheric American literature. The scale and severity of the current immigration crisis in the United States presses us to reconsider how the category of citizenship produces exclusions and abuses that arise from our national imaginary. Thus, we seek papers that broaden our understanding of citizenship beyond the spatially-bounded to better grasp the range of categories that bestow and rescind national belonging. Recent work, such as Carrie Hyde’s Civic Longing: The Speculative Origins of U.S. Citizenship, reframes citizenship as an imaginative longing that sutures the legal concept of the citizen to the cultural work of fiction.
