The Literature of Loss

The Literature of Loss

Irish literature is filled with loss; the loss of love, of language, of sovereignty, of wealth, of health and of religion. The atmosphere of loss almost haunts the pages and words of the Irish, and leads to questions about the influence of loss, the representation of loss and the meaning of loss. Where does this loss fit in? How has it changed? What impact do chronological, political, economic and geographical changes have on loss?

    contact email: 

    Raisin in the Sun continues to be a primary focus in discussions of Lorraine Hansberry. Two upcoming documentaries, one by Numa Perrier and Taye Hansberry, and another by Jamila Wignot and Tracy Heather Strain, may remedy this narrow perspective in biographical terms. Out the Raisin Box intends to add a scholarly perspective to this renaissance. I welcome chapters that address additional aspects of Hansberry's ouvre as well as her effect on movements dear to her heart.

    Call for Papers for the Journal of Studies in History and Culture

    Journal of Studies in History and Culture
    contact email: 

    Journal of Studies in History & Culture (JSHC) is a peer-reviewed, open-access online journal. The journal was born out of the needs to provide a platform for interdisciplinary research to emerging scholars across the world. The objective of JSHC is to fill the lacuna in the field of graduate research given a dearth of independent research by graduate students in India and the absence of funding towards this. The journal hopes to promote originality in interpretation and encourages collaborative work based on primary sources. It also publishes constructive and critical reinterpretations of existing scholarship.

    Midwest Modern Language Association 2014: The Lives of Cities
    November 13-16, 2014 | Detroit, MI

    NEW DEADLINE: June 10

    In Programmed Visions, Wendy Chun suggests that "the call to map may be the most obscuring of all: by constantly drawing connections between data points, we sometimes forget that the map should be the beginning, rather than the end, of the analysis" (177). With this year's MMLA conference theme of "The Lives of Cities," the second annual permanent section of digital humanities will explore criticisms of, experiments with, and provocations on mapping, geographic visualization, or other conceptions of urban space that work with or against the digital. Possible topics/projects include:
