In the past few years, we have seen a revision of historicism with events that include racial and social reckoning, the removal of perceived racially oppressive brands, body size inclusivity, unprecedented global pandemic loss of life, multiple global shutdowns, falsely contested elections, large scale falsehoods orchestrated through social media, and a general individualization of experience. New ways of living have emerged that include the wearing of face coverings, shopping online, curb and home delivery, new styles of clothing that are worn, more engagement with computers and social media, concerns of global warming, the race into outer-space, global vaccination, and governmental control.

Travel, Transnationalism, and Self-Writing
"It may be that writers in my position, exiles, or emigrants or expatriates, are haunted by some sense of loss, some urge to reclaim, to look back, even at the risk of being mutilated into pillars of salt. But if we do look back, we must do in the knowledge - which gives rise to profound uncertainties- that our physical alienation from India almost inevitably means that we will not be capable of reclaiming precisely the thing that was lost, that we will, in short, create fictions, not actual cities or villages, but invisible ones, imaginary homelands, Indias of the mind."
― Salman Rushdie

Irish identity has long been approached as anomalous. Ireland itself has been viewed as an anomalous state (Lloyd, Anomalous States). It was England’s first colony, a laboratory for empire, but at the same time contributed to the imperial project elsewhere, making it arguably semicolonial (Attridge and Howe, Semicolonial Joyce). It has been described as a first-world country with a third-world memory (Gibbons, Transformations in Irish Culture). But what defines Irishness now? After the Celtic Tiger, the 2008 banking crisis, and Brexit, how has Irish identity changed? As a result of increasing refugee crises around the world, Ireland is as much marked by immigration as emigration.

The mind and body binarism and its correlation with the male and female as opposites has been a subject of debate among academic scholars for some time now. Feminists have challenged such dualism and the related assumptions by offering accounts of the relationship between subjectivity, corporeality and identity. These changes in attitudes towards corporeality have also led to a change in treatments of the female characters in literature who once represented as passive and vulnerable seem to have achieved autonomy and control of their bodies and thus their subjectivity.

ABO's pedagogy series, Concise Collections on Teaching Eighteenth-Century Women, seeks submissions for an article grouping on Teaching Women Travellers in the Eighteenth Century.
Writing about the reception of his essay collection The Souls of Black Folk (1904), W. E. B. Du Bois describes the text as a simultaneous mixture of clear messages and irreconcilable ambiguity. “A clear central message it has conveyed to most readers,” he claims, “but around this center there has lain a penumbra of vagueness and half-veiled allusion.” The difficulty, Du Bois suggests, comes from Souls’s attempt to reconstruct affect into language: “to translate the finer feelings of men into words.” Scholars frequently identify these fragments of affect and vagueness as part of Du Bois’s poetic style.

I am inviting original essays on the literary works written by American writers, who have lived in Paris from the 1800s to the present, for a book tentatively titled American Writers in Paris: Then and Now.
Although American expatriate literature in Paris is typified by the Lost Generation or the Jazz Age of the 1920s, Americans show a distinct presence in Paris from Jefferson to the Jazz Age and from the Jazz Age to the present. Lifting social repressions, liberating artistic expressions, alleviating psychological ailments, inspiring artistic creations, enriching personal experiences, or enhancing economic standards at different times of history, Paris has turned out to be an alternative abode to live and write for American writers.
