Exploration and Adventure in the 19th Century American West
ATQ announces a special issue for 2004 on exploration and adventure in the
nineteenth-century American West. This issue seeks to expand studies of
exploration and adventure in the American West in light of recent
developments in literary and cultural studies. This issue encourages
considerations of well-known and less well-known explorations and
adventures in the West.
Articles might engage questions such as:
How might a study of exploration and adventure help us to reconsider
relatively monolithic conceptions of the West as it relates to
masculinity, femininity, race, and ethnicity?
