Naomi Alderman’s rise to literary stardom following the publication of The Power in 2016has been remarkable.  Alderman had been a critically feted novelist for a decade before The Power. Her earlier work had led to an Orange Award for Young Writers in 2006 and she was named a Granta Young Novelist of the Decade in 2013. The Power, written following a year-long mentorship by Margaret Atwood, won the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction in 2017; as with Atwood’s speculative fiction, it is situated on the boundaries of genre and literary fiction.

Marilynne Robinson has written widely-acclaimed novels and essays that explore the relationship between religion and culture.   Marilynne Robinson Society at the 2019 American Literature Association (ALA) Conference is soliticing proposals that examine how recent developments in post-secular studies can illuminate Robinson’s religious vision. Jurgen Habermas, Talal Asad, Charles Taylor, Jared Hickman, Tracy Fessensden, among other scholars, have led us to reconsider the secularization thesis and the ways in which it has shaped narratives of modernity. We ask how Robinson’s investigation of faith is especially relevant to the growing field of postsecular studies.

How does latinidad rely on personal memory? ¿Cómo es el concepto de « latinidad » a la vez un producto de memoria cultural? ¿Qué pasa cuando olvidamos? Do we learn latinidad from lessons that value the truths of memory? Across specialties of the disciplines and in a variety methods, recent scholarship is addressing the distance between the historical and the remembered. The authority of history measured against the validity of memory (both individual and collective) reveals that how we remember has become as important as what we remember.
