1. William Dean Howells and the Affective Turn
Perseverance builds character.
How does perseverance come about? By rising through a struggle, whether it is a provoked or unprovoked event that questions one’s ability to endure and survive a hardship. It is through one’s suffering and survival of such hardships in life -whether physical or mental - that one is able to build upon their character, thus leading to hope.
We are able to see these modes of struggle and perseverance in various facets from ethnicity, gender, and politics, to name a few, and we would like to hear, learn, and share them in our publication.

Paradise is burning - or melting, flooding, or otherwise collapsing. In actuality, these collapses are simultaneous, or convergent as Christian Parenti has termed it. Or, as a recent article states, "when the Arctic melts, the West burns."
Call for Papers: Nathaniel Hawthorne Society The Annual Conference of the MLA will meet in Seattle on January 9-12, 2020. The Nathaniel Hawthorne Society invites proposals investigating the topic, “Hawthorne, his Circle, and the Digital Humanities,” or “DH for NH,” for short.

Proposals might include (but are not limited to) such topics as:
