On the Period Formerly Known as the Program Era (NeMLA 2018)

In The Program Era and “On The Period Formerly Known as Contemporary,” Mark McGurl and Amy Hungerford have offered compelling narratives for periodizing and framing the post-45 literary field. But despite Hungerford’s acknowledgment that global watershed events are difficult to perceive, it it simultaneously difficult not to think that, in the past two years, “everything has changed.” In fact, as cataloged by the Post45 group, over ¾ of the proposals for the recent Princeton conference “The Contemporary” involved “post-” as a concept. If these shifts are real, then an important new question emerges: In what ways has the post-2016 moment changed, revised, or even departed from these previously guiding understandings of post-45?

Postcolonialism and ecocriticism have often been at odds with one another for the main reason that postcoloniality typically concerns itself with issues of displacement and diaspora, while ecocritical practice attends to a very specific ethics of place. However, as critics such as David Mazel argue, there exists an ability to interpret the land through the lens of a “poststructuralist ecocriticism” that encompasses “a way of reading environmental literature and canonical landscapes that attends concurrently to the discursive construction of both…environment and subjectivity,” creating an “analysis of the environment as a powerful site for naturalizing constructs of race, class, nationality, and gender” (American Literary Environmentalism, xxi).
