"W(h)ither the Christian Right?” Papers are invited for a Post45 Contemporaries cluster on the U.S. Christian Right and literature.

Momentarily defeated but unbowed like their champion President Trump, conservative white Christians have not received much attention in literary studies.
This collection will provide college-level instructors with short, provocative, and practical essays on new, antiracist methods for teaching poetry. We’re keen to identify outmoded approaches that need to be unsettled, and we invite you to write against their inadequate, outdated, toxic, and downright racist effects. Ultimately, Unsettling Poetry Pedagogy seeks to put antiracist teaching and research directly in conversation with each other, offering productive, tangible ways for poetry classrooms to confront social injustice.
