Alternate Routes: A Journal of Critical Social Research

We are living in increasingly insecure times. In the face of drastic climate change,
global economic uncertainty and imperialist wars with no clear battlefield or determined
timeline, a good many social scientists have concluded that insecurity, broadly defined
and in its many forms, is the new norm. For the next issue, Alternate Routes invites
submissions on the various ways in which (in)security has manifested in the new
millennium. How has state repression been employed and under what pretexts? What
lessons may be drawn from policing dissent? How does ecological degradation threaten
our -- food, labour, biospheric, geopolitical and physical -- security? In what ways are

Imagining History in Literature of the Early Republic (ALA 2011; proposals by 12/15/2010)

Monday, November 1, 2010 - 4:46pm
Angela Vietto

The imagined past and its uses in the literature of the new republic for a panel at the American Literature Association 2011 (Boston, May 26-29).

From representations of the distant past (e.g. Barlow's Columbiad, Rowson's Reuben and Rachel) to early constructions of the history of the founding (Weems on Washington, Bleecker's History of Maria Kittle), writers of the early Republic turned to history as a source of meaning for their present, even in the face of the discontinuous nature of revolutionary history.

Seeking proposals for papers that deal with any aspect of the imagined past as it appears in the literature of the early Republic. Topics might include

CFP: Critical Essays on Yiddish Women Writers (November 2, 2010: collection)

updated: 
Monday, November 1, 2010 - 2:40pm
Rosemary Horowitz, Professor of English, Appalachian State University

At the start of the twentieth century, writings by women regularly appeared in Yiddish magazines, newspapers, and books. In 1939, Shmuel Niger took stock of the state of Yiddish literature and noted the increasingly importance of women writers. Specifically, he mentioned Ezra Korman's anthology Yidishe dikhterins, a volume published in Chicago in 1928. Tragically, the annihilation of Jews in Eastern European Jews during the 1940s and in the Soviet Union during the 1950s decimated the Yiddish literary community and its readers. Then in 1953, when anthologies of Yiddish literature in English translation started to appear, those volumes primarily contained the work of male writers.

SCSECS 2011 "Dreaming and Becoming," Feb 17-19th, Saint Simons Is, Georgia

Monday, November 1, 2010 - 2:21pm
South-Central Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies

The eighteenth-century was a period of great enthusiasm for experimentation and implementation. In government, in economics, in all the sciences as they came to be established, in publication, in all the arts, in short, all were keen on implementing what were largely theoretical (and quite often utopian) notions. When we return to Saint Simons Island, Georgia, in February our theme will be Dreaming and Becoming, and (among other things, of course) we will consider the slippage, sometimes fortunate and other times not, between what was thought to be coming and what came to be.
