The Melville Society Panel of the MLA

Melville in the Popular Imagination

Herman Melville, along with Edgar Allan Poe and Mark Twain, has always
held a special place in popular culture, as the man who lived among the
cannibals in his own day or the author of difficult works that challenge
the minds and imaginations of readers today. Nearly all of his novels
and many of his stories have been adapted more than once to the motion
picture screen, radio, television, comic books, graphic novels, and
other media, and Moby-Dick, the great but often-unread American novel,
remains the subject of countless jokes and cartoons.

For a special issue planned for Spring 2008, the editors of the Southern
Literary Journal invite essays with new approaches to the long-discussed
topics of history, cultural memory, and mourning in southern literature. We
are especially interested in essays that reread southern writers' emphasis
on the past in terms of other literatures and other pasts, address the
convergences of the burgeoning field of trauma studies with southern
studies, or reconsider the encounters of literary texts with specific
historical events. Other possible essays might work with questions of
aesthetics or genre, memory and memorializing, the impacts of critical race
