This session examines the relationship between religion and American literature. In particular, it welcomes papers that explore the topic of theodicy in contemporary American literature. How have the events following 9/11, and the developments in post-secular and trauma studies made the question of theodicy a more vital, urgent topic in our contemporary moment? How has 9/11 transformed the ways in which Americans think about the problem of evil? How has this event and other acts of terror influenced our cultural imaginations of suffering and death? How have contemporary American writers contributed to the conversations about the presence or absence of God in suffering?

Remapping is inherently an act of dissent. As Denis N. Cosgrove observes, “The measure of mapping is not restricted to the mathematical; it may be equally spiritual, political, or moral. By the same token, the mapping’s record is not confined to the archival; it includes the remembered, the imagined, and the contemplated.” What role do illusory places––literary utopias, hoaxes, legends, visions, and other fictions––play in critiquing, reinforcing, or challenging mainstream American culture in the nineteenth century? This proposed panel explores aspirational, deceptive, and fantastical spaces which throw the existing world into relief to propose plausible and potent alternative microcosms.
