Since Fight Club earned Chuck Palahniuk notoriety, critical praise and derision and a committed cult following on the heels of the 1996 novel publication and 1999's David Fincher film adaptation starring Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, Helena Bonham-Carter and Jared Leto, the author and his work have struggled to find critical legitimacy. His reputation, especially at public readings, has been built upon accentuating all the ways grotesque horror can become comically absurd.

American Studies Program, University of Bucharest
deadline for submissions:

[Inter]sections is an annual double-blind peer reviewed journal of American Studies (ISSN 2068 – 3472) indexed in the MLA Directory of Periodicals, Ulrichsweb, DOAJ, CEEOL, and EBSCO. [Inter]sections publishes academic articles, reviews, and interviews relevant to the field of American studies. We encourage our authors to explore the most recent scholarship, from a solid critical background and in conversation with relevant and challenging work from the field. Although we focus primarily on subjects that are grounded in the nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first century, we do not exclude work that explores other time periods.
