"In this best of all possible worlds, everything is for the best."- Voltaire
“It’s easier to imagine the end of the world than to imagine the end of capitalism.”- Fredric Jameson
The Early Atlantic world witnessed unprecedented changes in mobility, allowing people, goods, and ideas to traverse the globe. Such transit thereby created new pathways for exchange. From the spice trade to the slave trade, scholars have traced the movement of bodies and objects (and objectified bodies) throughout and beyond the Atlantic world, highlighting the circulation of goods and their effects on personal, cultural, and national identity. Purdue’s Early Atlantic Reading Group invites explorations of the circulation of material goods and bodies for a graduate student colloquium that emphasizes material culture, literature, and mobility in the Early Atlantic world.

The hard-boiled in crime and detective fiction is frequently associated with a nostalgia for an imagined white, working-class, American masculinity. Yet, women writers and characters also address the hard-boiled, often in order to modify, critique, or resituate it within cultural frameworks.

Digital America is now accepting submissions for Issue No. 8. We are an online journal that focuses on digital art and culture with an eye toward the American experience. We are looking for critical essays, film, artwork, design, and reviews that question, analyze, and/or hack the tools of digital culture. We are also interested in work that explores how new behaviors and new, global networks of power and influence are shaping American life. All submissions should engage American life and digital culture and/or digitization in some way. We encourage creative responses to these parameters as we understand the complexities of engaging “America” in a global, networked world.
