Representing Trauma: American Redemption Stories and Lost Cause
Narratives (NeMLA 9/15/07)

This panel seeks papers that critically engage American Redemption
narratives. Specifically, this panel will investigate narratives that
represent characters reliving or re-enacting traumatic events so that
distinctions between the past and the present breakdown. We are
particularly interested in papers that discuss the conflation of absence
and loss so that historical losses are misrepresented as absence and
become “lost causes.”
