Boston University’s American and New England Studies Program is proud to announce a call for papers for its upcoming Graduate Student Conference to be held on April 13, 2019 in Boston, MA.

 

This conference’s theme, “Framing Narratives,” asks people to think through the establishment, circulation, and contestation of the stories that "frame" American life. What stories give shape to, constrain, border, bolster, or animate American visions of selfhood and community? These might be literal stories (or literal frames!), but could also be some of the unspoken, but demonstrably real narratives that shore up national identity.

Since the turn of the millennium the United States of America has undergone what many have considered to be a series of political, financial, and institutional crises. At the same time, the increasing popularity of the science fiction genre has, in many ways, frequently both dramatized and provided a commentary on the fears and anxieties this period has evoked. The philosopher and cultural critic Walter Benjamin argued that allegory emerges most frequently in periods of crisis and uncertainty, correspondingly it is no coincidence that some of the most powerful films to emerge from American cinema in the last two decades are allegorical texts and many of which have come from the science fiction genre.
