Renascence

Renascence, a peer-reviewed critical and scholarly journal, is published by Marquette University as an expression of its Jesuit mission of the search for truth and the exaltation of human dignity. The journal's essays explore how literature is informed by and contributes to our understanding of fundamental questions concerning moral philosophy, theology, and spirituality. Though Renascence is an English language journal and has an emphasis on literature in English, studies on works and authors from a diversity of times, countries, and cultures are welcome. Essays should make a well-defined, original scholarly argument, run 4,000-7,000 words, and document sources using MLA style.

SAMLA 87, November 13-15, 2015; New Narratives of 9/11: Conspiracy, Terror, and Change

updated: 
Friday, May 29, 2015 - 12:01pm
Panel Chair: Levin Arnsperger; Conference Organization: South Atlantic Modern Language Association

The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, assumed significance for Arabs and Muslims not solely on account of the sheer magnitude of the disaster, that is the extent of the destruction and the number of victims. Rather, Arabs and Muslims have faced repercussions of the attacks in their own, extended communities, for instance discrimination and racial profiling in the U.S. and war and civil strife in Iraq. This panel seeks to illuminate how Arabs and Muslims have been represented in literature and other arts after the events of 9/11 - and how they have represented themselves. How is terrorism, how are conflicts in the Middle East addressed? What is the place of Islam in the texts? Papers on American and non-American works are welcome.
