THE LEGACY OF SHERWOOD ANDERSON'S GROTESQUES IN THE AMERICAN SHORT STORY

"It was the truths that made the people grotesques. The old man had quite an elaborate theory concerning the matter. It was his notion that the moment one of the people took one of the truths to himself, called it his truth, and tried to live his life by it, he became a grotesque and the truth he embraced became a falsehood."

(Abstract by Jan. 19) Calvino's Contexts: The Influences On and The Influences Of Italo Calvino (NeMLA Apr. 2014)

In the years since his death, the stature of Italo Calvino has only continued to grow. While his status as an Italian writer was never in doubt, the global range of his work is still being explored. This panel invites papers interested in pursuing this framework, political and historical, national and transnational, literary and philosophical. The influences on Calvino's fictions were immense, and the influence of his fictions on other writers and other literary movements - postmodernist, postcolonial, magical realist, science fictional, and others - have been equally immense. This panel seeks to better understand these influences. In what ways can Italo Calvino be seen not only as a great Italian novelist, but as a key figure in world literature?

The voice of an artist reaches and touches the world as well as the lives of his/ her readers. The words of writers can stir social unrest but they can also pacify the crowds. Literary works are instrumental in preserving national identities, and Poland's troubled history during the Partitions can serve as the epitome of the authority of literature. Writers, however, are equally revered as they are persecuted for the statements they dare to utter.

The Age of Dystopia

Louisa MacKay-Demerjian

Dystopia as a genre has exploded in recent years. Cambridge Scholars Publishing has expressed interest in publishing a collection which seeks to answer questions such as the following: How has the genre been treated similarly or differently by various practitioners? Why is it so popular and why has it become a trend in 'young adult' literature? At what points in literary history has the genre been this popular? What is it about our world that has prompted this explosion? How do television programs and films with a dystopian flavor approach their topics? Margaret Atwood's Maddaddam trilogy and The Hunger Games trilogy stand out for their popularity but lesser known works are welcome.

The special issue looks to integrate the cultural experience of the Romanian Americans to the vast and diverse array of European diasporas in the US toward an appraisal of the range and worth of their scholarship and creative output. With this end in view, we seek an ample set of contributions across the full spectrum of theory and practice, in poetry, prose, drama, visual arts, translation, pedagogy and mixed creative or critical modes of writing.
