[Update] American Shame: Stigma and the Body Politic, Edited Collection [7/15/2013]

Myra Mendible, Professor, Florida Gulf Coast University

This interdisciplinary collection explores how American identity is culturally and historically bound to its distinctive emotional landscape, and in particular, how public shaming practices express and fuel collective anxieties of distinction, separation, and status. I have already selected a range of impressive essays for the book but still seek analyses of American shaming tactics/rhetoric/events in the context of LGBT, immigrant, and criminal justice issues--though I remain open to other possibilities as well. Note that this collection is fairly far along so I can only consider essay drafts, not proposals. Please send submissions for initial review before July 15 to mendible@fgcu.edu.

[UPDATE] Forms of Reading, Forms of Life (SAMLA Nov. 8-10, 2013)

updated: 
Thursday, June 6, 2013 - 10:59am
Benjamin Mangrum / University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill AND Benjamin Sammons / University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Observing a national decline in literary reading, in 2006 the National Endowment for the Arts instituted the Big Read Program to revivify what it deemed an indispensable, but endangered, civic activity. In 2009, the NEA celebrated new research indicating that, for the first time in twenty-five years, literary reading in the US was on the rise. Yet what grounds are there for such consternation or celebration? Indeed, why a governmental investment in this cultural practice? And, in a digital era, as new forms of textual production and consumption proliferate, why the emphasis on traditionally defined literary reading?
