CFP: War Gothic

For a book-length collection entitled War Gothic, we invite essays on the intersection of the gothic tradition in literature, art, cinema, television, as well as in visual and digital media, with the representation of war and the military in its various manifestations.

Submissions should fall roughly into either the category of "Literary Gothic" or "Visual Gothic," which may extend from engravings, paintings and posters to video games and online culture. Historical reference points range from civil wars to national, colonial, and post-colonial conflicts, the Cold War and post-Cold War global conflicts.

Vice and Assimilation in American Literature - NeMLA - Harrisburg, PA (April 3-6, 2014)

Thursday, September 19, 2013 - 8:51am
Northeast Modern Language Association

This panel seeks papers that explore narratives wherein the process of assimilation is completed through vice rather than through the virtues of hard-work and persistence. By 'vice', we do not necessarily mean violent and/or criminal activities (although we are open to such topics) but rather forms of leisure that are oftentimes un-associated with tales of assimilation, such as drinking, gambling or adultery. Some foundational questions we will ask are: how does this alternative mode of assimilation affect the character's chances of successfully becoming an American citizen? Moreover, what does this reveal about the character's definition of 'citizen'?
