Non-guaranteed session for ASA (American Studies Association) 2017. From the hermit’s tales of the eighteenth century through the writings of transcendentalists in the nineteenth and expatriates in the twentieth (to name only a few), American writers and cultural producers have long represented separation from society as a form of political, social, and/or cultural dissent. This panel seeks to examine such representations with an eye toward their inherent ambiguities. To what degree and under what conditions can dissent, a form of oppositional political engagement, stem from what is ostensibly a strategy of disengagement—i.e., separation and withdrawal?

In her 2014 A Cultural History of the Irish Novel, 1790-1829, Claire Connolly declares that a major aim is, and must be, ‘to restore seriousness and nuance to our understanding of the Irish fiction of the romantic period’, which her criticism seeks to achieve by ‘refus[ing] or at least redirect[ing] readings that treat the novels as so many failed efforts to contain the hectic world of early nineteenth-century Ireland’ (Connolly 1).

As Peter Gay explains in Modernism: The Lure of Heresy, “Fascists came into power legally . . . They freely resorted to naked physical assaults on politically inconvenient opponents; they labored to erase all traces of modern feminism and trade unionism; they put the making of a new, higher type of humanity on their program; they made increasingly exigent demands on ordinary citizens, invading their privacy whether it involved sports or music lessons, theatrical performances or art exhibitions” (Gay 433).
