September 11 Memorial and Museum
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, April 1, 2017

This past September, thousands of family members gathered at the 9/11 Memorial to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 2001. At this site, the effects of that day are still obvious: memorial fountains where the Twin Towers once stood, the steady drone of construction on surrounding projects still underway, rebuilding the devastation left behind, and two large steel tridents that once formed part of the external façade of the North Tower visible through the windows of the 9/11 Memorial Museum’s entry pavilion. Here, the effects of terror are evident. Here, to quote Pope Francis on his own visit to the site in 2015, “grief is palpable.”

The Future of Love

Despite its ubiquity in literature, music, and culture, the concept of love has received little critical attention in the academy and is often associated with the more negative aspects of critical discourse that are linked with femininity, such as softness and sentimentality. In an era when psychology is the most dominant mode of critical vocabulary and exploration, the notion of love that survives is overshadowed by theories of human desire such as ambivalence.

Critical Recursions

What incites the resurgence of an old -ism under the banner of the “new”: new criticism, new historicism, new formalism, new materialism, new secularism, new Americanism? The recurrence of the “new” is itself an academic tradition of some standing, yet the relationship between the –ism and its newness is not just the announcement of a break, but a negotiation between return and departure, opposition and progression. Taken as a whole, critical tendencies and preoccupations begin to look less like radical ruptures and more like reinvestments in persistent questions.
