September 11 Memorial and Museum
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, April 1, 2017

This past September, thousands of family members gathered at the 9/11 Memorial to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 2001. At this site, the effects of that day are still obvious: memorial fountains where the Twin Towers once stood, the steady drone of construction on surrounding projects still underway, rebuilding the devastation left behind, and two large steel tridents that once formed part of the external façade of the North Tower visible through the windows of the 9/11 Memorial Museum’s entry pavilion. Here, the effects of terror are evident. Here, to quote Pope Francis on his own visit to the site in 2015, “grief is palpable.”

The Future of Love

Despite its ubiquity in literature, music, and culture, the concept of love has received little critical attention in the academy and is often associated with the more negative aspects of critical discourse that are linked with femininity, such as softness and sentimentality. In an era when psychology is the most dominant mode of critical vocabulary and exploration, the notion of love that survives is overshadowed by theories of human desire such as ambivalence.

"Southern States of Insecurity: The South During Crises" - SSSL at MLA 2018

updated: 
Monday, February 6, 2017 - 12:06pm

The U.S. South is often the site and focal point for many of the definitive crises that have characterized American history and culture. Whether it is a widespread national crisis like the Civil War, or a more localized natural disaster such as Hurricane Katrina, the South’s history and culture has been consistently marked by moments of upheaval and intensified chaos. Just as consistently, works of literature take up these crisis moments as topics in order to depict both the immediate and reverberating effects of crisis and disaster.

 

"The Tacky South" - SSSL at MLA 2018

Wednesday, March 15, 2017

As a way to comment on a person’s style, the word “tacky” has distinctly southern origins. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, it first emerged around 1800 as a noun to describe “a poor white of the Southern States from Virginia to Georgia.” Although the OED does not draw connections between this origin and the origins of the adjective describing something “dowdy, shabby; in poor taste, cheap, vulgar,” these definitions suggest a clear link between national stereotypes of region, race, and class and urbane (and northern urban?) notions of taste, class, and sensibility.
