Jeffers’s Inevitable Place
The Society for the Study of the American Short Story seeks papers for two panels to be held at the November 2018 American Literature Association Symposium. The conference will convene in Santa Fe, NM, November 1-3, 2018, at the Drury Plaza Hotel.
The governing idea of the conference is Sights and Sites: Vision and Place in American Literature: What does it mean to envision the American landscape? What are the philosophical, psychological, and political factors that shape how writers look at a place and transform their perceptions into works of fiction, poetry, drama, travel writing, and autobiography? How does race, class, and gender influence the perception of natural and social sites?
Please submit your proposal for the below-described panel to take place at NeMLA 2019, from March 21st to 24th, 2019 in Washington, DC (https://www.buffalo.edu/nemla/convention.html)
**Critical Approaches to Neo-Reactionary Discourses and Aesthetics**
The Origins of Literary Studies at American Universities
In the decades following the Second World War, the American family assumed an unprecedented cultural and political importance in the life of the nation. Happy families were everywhere: beaming enthusiastically from magazine advertisements and indulging in wholesome hijinks on ubiquitous post-war sitcoms. However, while the typical post-war family may conjure up images of white picket fences, exuberant children playing on green lawns, and pies cooling on windowsills, a sinister reimagining of American domesticity emerged in the pages of pulp novels and popular magazines.
The clash of people and civilizations from East to West has been a particularly rich, varied, and intense development in history. Formulating new identities, while being surrounded by foreign space and native people, the traveler reflects the changing modes, times, and equally shifting cultural attitudes that can be found in a European’s travel writing. For instance, a glimpse across time into the city of Istanbul, held as a popular travel spot by visitors for centuries, reveals varied cultures, groups of people and their diverse linguistic uses, food choices, social norms and religious customs.

Radical Elegy: Memorial Praxis for Precarious Life
This seminar addresses elegy as a performative repertoire in political extremity. Elegy, at a radical pitch, occupies public space and public memory to resist forgetting, a second death. How have expressive practices to and for the dead generated ideas of justice, bonds of solidarity, ethical responses to violence, and communities of contested memory?
