Tuesday, October 27, 2015 - 5:18pm
Pos Studies Association

Many teachers of Edgar Allan Poe's writings spend time dispelling myths about the writer, and this process involves helping students understand the antebellum world in which Poe lived and worked. At the upcoming ALA Conference in San Francisco, the Poe Studies Association will sponsor a panel about contextualizing Poe, and for this panel dedicated to pedagogical matters, the PSA seeks proposals. Possible topics include Poe and magazine publishing; Poe's topical humor; antebellum responses to Poe's writings; nationalism and Poe; nineteenth-century science in the works of Poe; mourning and death in Poe's America; Poe and popular song; Poe the reviewer; and criminality in the world of Poe. Other relevant topics are, of course, welcome.

I am seeking manuscripts to complete an edited collection, Toward an Ecosomatic Paradigm: Disability and the Environment in American Literature, which is focused on the intersection between disability studies and ecological criticism. The collection is currently under contract with Lexington Press, and I am looking to add a chapter or two that explores the collection's theme with a particular focus on the intersection between American disability culture (especially literary expressions) and the environmental imagination.
