This is a call for papers for a conference at CSU Bakersfield (Nov. 6-8) on the cultural legacy of John Steinbeck's novel The Grapes of Wrath in this, the 75th anniversary of its publication. John Ford's 1940 film version helped make the case for social reform that echoed decades thereafter, through the farm labor movement, folk music, and the musical style known as the Bakersfield Sound--even as it set off the kinds of reactions described in Rick Wartzman's Obscene in the Extreme: The Burning and Banning of John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath (2008).

Carved from the Mountains: Defining Sustainability in the Appalachian Region
contact email: 

In following with the SAMLA 86 theme of "Sustainability and the Humanities," this session will explore the idea of sustainability as it relates to the Appalachian region. How can we define sustainability in the region? How have sustainable resources and agriculture shaped Appalachian literature and culture? How have conflicts about the idea of sustainability—do we sustain our mountaintop environments or sustain our jobs?—played a role in Appalachian literature and culture? In what ways can sustainability be seen outside its traditional environmental and economical terms? How has Appalachian literature aided or hindered the sustainability of Appalachian cultural values, religious beliefs, regional dialect—even Appalachian stereotypes?

'Renaissance literary works are no longer regarded either as a fixed set of texts…that contain their own determinate meanings or as a stable set of reflections of historical facts that lie beyond them…rather they are made up and constantly redrawn by artists, audiences, and readers. These collective social constructions on the one hand define the range of aesthetic possibilities within a given representational mode and, on the other, link that mode to the complex network of institutions, practices and beliefs that constitute the culture as a whole.'
Stephen Greenblatt, The Power of Forms in the English Renaissance (1982)
