Special Issue of The South Carolina Review: The Spectral South

Essay proposals are invited for a special themed issue of The South Carolina Review that examines the images of zombies, vampires, and other undead in the American South. We are particularly interested in how the narratives of these specters exorcise cultural guilt about slavery, fears of racial contamination, and the split personality of the state that once succeeded from the Union. We are also happy to consider contributions that take a broader view of what the "Spectral South" might mean. Possible topics might consider the following:

Modernist Studies Association

According to Frederic Jameson, the Modernist novel abandoned the panoramic cityscapes of the 19th century realist novel and devised "strategies of inwardness." As Brigitte Munier suggests, the early-20th century protagonist experienced the city "locked within his room, carried away by the cries of shopowners whom Flaubert and Nerval would have encountered walking down the street." The Modernist room, in these accounts, appears to function as a refuge from a confusing public terrain.
