Modes of Relative Certainty

This panel will explore areas of "relative certainty" in modernism, where the supposed impossibility of knowing anything for certain meets the practical reality that things can be known well enough that readers and citizens can make use of them. In the wake of postmodernist criticism's essential disdain for certain knowledge and a general acceptance of modernists as ambiguous, ironic, enigmatical, interested in differance and lack, textual density and obscure allusions, we bring attention to the ways modernist texts celebrate positive knowledge--as contingent as that knowledge may be.

This panel opens a conversation about how motherhood is co-opted in the labor migration forces that are driving the current global culture. The participation of mothers in labor migration deserves reflection because it illuminates a turning point in modes of thinking about home, motherhood, geopolitical borders as territories of ideological stability. Traditionally, labor migration was a masculine practice that naturalized paternal duty to be exercised from outside the house, many times reduced to economic expression. For example, after World War II, Germany rebuilt the economy with massive labor imports from Turkey. Maghrebian workers were instrumental in France.

Critical anthology on Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire book or TV series

full name / name of organization: 
Editors Rachel Schaffer and John Scaggs

Wyoming author Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire mystery series and the A&E/Netflix television series adapted from it have become increasingly popular since the publication of The Cold Dish in 2005. The series has steadily moved up the New York Times bestseller list, reaching #6 with this year's release, Any Other Name. The television series grew steadily in popularity among viewers and was the highest-rated scripted drama in A&E's history. To date, only one critical study has been published about Johnson's body of work. Therefore, we are seeking previously unpublished papers about either the Longmire book series or the television series for a collection to be published by McFarland.
