Justine Dymond

Nearly seven years since the terrorist attack on 9/11 and the invasion of
Afghanistan, and over five years since the U.S. invasion of Iraq, an
initial wave of literature is emerging that explicitly responds to and
reflects on the aftermath of this recent history. Writers as diverse as
Deborah Eisenberg, Jonathan Safran Foer, Hunter S. Thompson, and Sherman
Alexie have published 9/11 stories, essays, and novels. Galway Kinnell’s
recent collection, Strong Is Your Hold, includes his now-famous
meditation on 9/11, “When the Towers Fell.” Many other poets and
essayists have also trained their pens on the experiences of grief, loss,
and violence resulting from 9/11 and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

EARLY MODERN LITERARY STUDIES (2009)
Special Issue: Embodying Shakespeare

New histories of the body, historical phenomenology, and psychoanalytic readings of the body-
as-text have flourished in the last two decades in early modern studies. As Sean McDowell has
recently noted, “scholarship on the early modern body â€" its materiality, its processes, its
relationships to affect and cognition, its role in enculturation, and its connections to the physical
world â€" coalesced in the 1990s into its own field,"* as evidenced by a growing number of
academic conferences, scholarly monographs, and edited collections on the topic.
