C19: March 17-20, 2016

In the nineteenth century, the question of the United States' growing status as a world power manifested itself not only through territorial expansionism, but also through the nation's economic ties to the rest of the globe. Whether through vociferous debates about tariff policies, or through competition with European powers over trade with Asia, or through consumers' metaphorical ownership of the world imagined through the possession of imported goods, nineteenth-century Americans were aware of the geopolitical implications of the United States' economic policies and entanglements.

Literary history is full of forgetting—both forced and natural. Manuscripts and books have been forgotten as a result of conquest, language changes, and politics. Other texts have been forgotten due to their physical condition: sole manuscripts are hidden away in archives, libraries burn, and paper disintegrates. Many medieval texts that are now central to the English literary canon, such as Beowulf, Piers Plowman, and the Book of Margery Kempe, were virtually unknown until the nineteenth, or even twentieth centuries. Later texts, from the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries, have been forgotten due to changes in taste, to their originally ephemeral nature, or to the sheer quantity of works that were published.

Fictional Religions (ACLA 2015)

updated: 
Friday, August 21, 2015 - 9:31am
American Comparative Literature Association

Fantasy, science fiction, horror, and even more mimetic fiction in various media such as texts and graphic novels have long permitted the sort of free experimentation often celebrated (or bemoaned) in the American religious environment, though constrained by genre conventions, social contexts, market forces, and other factors. Thus, especially the "estranged" genres of fiction (pace Suvin) permit not only the utopian depiction of traditional religions as they ought to be and the dystopian depiction of religions as they ought not to be, but also the representation of novel religious forms—a space in which new fictional religions may be invented.
