Call for Papers for Edited Collection | Advancing Veterans Studies
This collection emerges from the current moment and our shared interest in advancing veterans studies as an academic discipline. Consistent with this range of efforts, we welcome contributions that give voice not just to campus-community successes, but also to their challenges beyond academic borders. To complement chapter-length discussions of approximately 25 pages or the equivalent, we encourage course syllabi or project design case studies of approximately 8-10 pages (or equivalent), as well as interviews with veterans studies specialists working on campus and in the community to advance the field of veterans studies.

As a nation of settlers and immigrants, Americans often confront the possibility of claiming a mixed heritage, whether their ancestors have resided in the country for generations or they themselves are the first generation who have come from another country. Translating Rosemary Serra's study, Sense of Origins: Studies on the young Italian Americans of New York, I have confronted numerous interpretations of how the relationship between two countries (in this case Italy and America) constitutes an essential element of individual identity. Perhaps the most significant aspect is the extremely varied nature regarding how the individuals assign meaning to the term "Italian American."

Seminar Proposal for the American Comparative Literature Association Annual Meeting

March 19-22, 2020

Clothes, as fashion scholar Tanisha Ford writes, serve as a “powerful social skin”. While the selection of what one wears is linked to taste and trends, clothes can also reflect one’s socioeconomic status, age, physical ability, gender, ethnicity, ancestry, and politics. In this way, clothes often function simultaneously as an assertion of one’s individual self and as a mode of publicly claiming community. Its historical role in the construction of identity situates fashion as unique within the material world and, as this seminar suggests, within literary cultures as well.
