Way Out West: People, Places, and Politics beyond Boundaries

updated: 
Friday, November 18, 2022 - 12:46pm
Western Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 1, 2023

Artists and writers have long been deconstructing dominant notions of the American West. In 1957, jazz saxophonist Sonny Rollins released Way Out West, a record that drew inspiration from California landscapes, TV Westerns, and overlooked Black cowboys. The album cover depicts Rollins outfitted as a gunfighter in desert surrounds, complete with cacti and a sun-bleached cattle skull. Where you might expect to find a big iron on his hip, he cradles his tenor sax. Today, artists like Orville Peck continue to revise, rewrite, and expand the boundaries of what we might consider the story of the West both in sound, style, and location—the South African-born crooner, now based out of Canada, has gained major success on the U.S.

This "call for chapters" is for a collection through Lexington Press (which has approved the concept and is awaiting the chapter list). The focus of this collection is mentorship as portrayed in shonen anime and film.

Shonen anime and film is loaded with mentors. Some are insightful, benevolent, and effective. Boku no Hero Academia’s All Might is one such mentor. His treatment of Midoriya is founded in compassion. And, All Might himself is a beloved leader. Who he is before the camera is the same as when there are no cameras to be found (excluding his physical transformation, of course). He is a model mentor.

The format of the seminar will be hybrid, being able to present a communication (10 minutes) in person or online, in Spanish or in English.

No matter how many years have passed since the end of the Golden Age of Hollywood, this era never seems to leave the popular imagination. James Dean and Judy Garland remain household names; modern celebrities still seek to emulate the glamour of this bygone time; and audiences still go to see contemporary biopics and television shows about stars such as Marilyn Monroe, Joan Crawford, and Bette Davis. There is something about this moment in American moviemaking that grabbed the public’s attention and has never let go, even as the larger cinematic landscape continues to change dramatically.
