The editors of the Oxford University Handbook on American Street Literature seek papers that explore the history and themes of this unique genre. Street literature, also known as urban literature, refers to a genre of writing that primarily focuses on the experiences and narratives of individuals from marginalized communities, particularly in urban areas. Street Lit often explores the struggles, triumphs, and complexities of life in poor neighborhoods, shedding light on themes such as crime, violence, poverty, and the pursuit of success. Street literature encompasses various forms of written expression, including novels, short stories, poetry, and non-fiction accounts.

"Medicated" Nature, Poisoned Nature: Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. and Nineteenth-Century American Medicine

In the preface to the second edition of Elsie Venner: A Romance of Destiny, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. refers to his work as a “medicated” novel. He also claims to have written his “medicated” work to provide a meditation on the doctrine of “original sin,” wondering whether the eponymous character is morally responsible for her amoral nature. With a background in the medical field, however, Holmes approaches the concept of morality and amorality from a purely physical point of view, forcing his readers to confront both the fact of the impressionable nature of the human body as well as the potential long-term effects on human psychology of disability induced by bodily trauma.

Despite the brutal, colonial origins of Australian settlement, and the ongoing consequences for Indigenous people, an enduring connection between Britain and Australia remains. As Rolfe (2022) argues, until the 1960s, Australians incorporated a dual identity as both Australians and Britons, and although American influence has grown since then– the British/Australian relationship persists and has been widely explored in screen media.

By the time the First World War erupted in 1914, most inhabitants of the globe resided within an empire, either as citizens of a colonizing power or as subjects of colonial rule. The preceding “long nineteenth century” had witnessed the rise of various empires with significant overseas colonial possessions—such as Britain, France, the Dutch Republic (subsequently the Kingdom of the Netherlands), and Meiji Japan—to coexist alongside imperial powers contained within contiguous land masses, including the Ottoman, Russian, and Qing empires.
