Graduate Journal aspeers Calls for Papers on "American Youth" by 18 Oct 2015

aspeers: emerging voices in american studies

When Theodore Roosevelt spoke of America as a "young giant of the West," a "nation glorious in youth and strength," at the Republican National Convention in 1900, he inserted himself into a long rhetorical tradition: Whether in promise or in criticism, identifying 'youth' with America and calling the US a nation that is yet to grow up constitutes a well-established trope in discussions of 'Americanness.' At the same time, adolescence and youth are core concepts at the heart of American literature and culture, and they are at the center of many contemporary debates. From the 'American Dream,' a coming-of-age story of sorts, to debates about the education sector, from moral panics about 'juvenile delinquency' to stories about America's youngest entrepreneurs, and from Huckleberry Finn to the controversial No Child Left Behind Act, childhood and adolescence are focal lenses in thinking about 'America,' inviting at least two complementary perspectives: one in which youth is a trope frequently tied to 'America' and one in which youth is a concern with deep cultural resonance in American culture.

For its ninth issue, aspeers thus dedicates the topical section to "American Youth" and invites European graduate students to critically and analytically explore the particular relationship between notions of youth and American culture."
