I need papers to fill out a panel at the upcoming SAMLA Conference in
Charlotte, North Carolina, November 10-12, 2006.

American Literature II-Political Plots and Literary
Manifestations-Post-1900

Richard Hofstadter, David Brion Davis, and others have famously noted a
current of countersubversive thinking and anti-intellectualism running
through American political life from the founding up through the Cold
War. How has twentieth- and twenty-first-century literature formulated
aesthetic responses to the "Paranoid Style" and other forms of paranoia?
What connections exist between paranoia, politics, and literary
production? Please send proposals by March 14 to Charles Bradshaw,
University of Tennessee at Martin by email at cbradshaw_at_utm.edu.
