The Symbolic Role of Agriculture in Anglophone/American Fiction

“Those who labour in the earth are the chosen people of God, if ever he had a chosen people…” (Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia, Query XIX). This quote from Thomas Jefferson’s Notes on the State of Virginia (1785) represents an attitude towards agriculture and specifically the family farm that remains influential in the United States today. Connection to the land is still viewed as sacred even as less people work on the land as farmers and ranchers (two percent according to the last census) and environmentalists struggle to reclaim the “soul” of agriculture from the industrial interests that have reshaped farming and the American farmer.

Teaching War Literature Since 9-11 (Roundtable Session)

Many faculty came of age in the Post-Vietnam War era. This time period was shaped by the writings of Tim O’Brien in The Things They Carried and the films Platoon directed by Oliver Stone, Full Metal Jacket directed by Stanley Kubrick, and The Deer Hunter directed by Michael Cimino. These stories challenged the image of the United States as a land of righteous warriors protecting the world from oppression. Instead, soldiers were the pawns of forces they didn’t understand, forces that were bent on a neo-colonial domination of the world. Then came 9/11 and everything changed. Or did it?

Issue 13 of Alphaville will focus on the renewed interest in race and identity on screen and in the media. These topics have received increasing attention in recent years, including a spate of films and mini-series chronicling episodes in black history from the past two hundred years, and are at the core of a growing public engagement with questions of civil rights and social justice, which most recently has sparked movements like Black Lives Matters in the aftermath of numerous deaths of black citizens at the hands of American police.
