Over the last three decades, the rise of the socio-political formation widely referred to as neoliberalism has seen a particular model of freedom – the freedom of free markets, property rights and entrepreneurial self-ownership – gain prominence in a variety of ways around the globe.
Although the phenomenon of World War I trauma, particularly shell shock (a term that this volume understands as denoting specifically mental trauma unique to World War I), 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 peer-reviewed comparative collection, under contract with the University of North Georgia Press, 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.
