Revenge is Mad Hard: Fat Ham and the Question of Cultural Reclamation

 

Since its digital debut in April of 2021, subsequent Pulitzer win, off-Broadway run, Broadway run, and recent flurry of regional productions, Fat Ham has taken North America by storm. In re-framing the story of Hamlet from within a Black, southern family barbeque, playwright James Ijames has opened the door for questions about cultural authority, the exchange of cultural capital, mediation, storytelling and adaptation methods, the need for increased representation in canonical stories, the methods through which marginalized voices might reclaim cultural capital, and more.

Anthem Studies in Critical Literary Geography presents cutting-edge examinations of the representation of geographical phenomena across diverse historical literary genres and documents. We publish challenging, theoretically informed analyses of land-based, oceanic, meteorological, and imaginative geographical elements of texts, spanning both factual and fictional realms. Encompassing all locations – including  for instance roads, fields, mountains, deserts, rivers, lakes, swamps, coastlines, seas, storm systems, planets, machine worlds and built environments – the series critically engages with the nuanced portrayal of these phenomena in fictional and non-fictional literature throughout various historical periods.

In his essay “Walking,” Henry David Thoreau proclaims, “…in wildness is the preservation of the world.”  As the world continues to urbanize, it’s as important as ever to identify the diverse ways that humans interact with wildness in cities and reflect on how these interactions inform our understanding of, relationship to, and impact on nature.  This special session seeks papers that consider encounters of wildness in urban landscapes as depicted in literature, film, photography, music, video games, and other cultural texts from all periods and regions.  Though abstract on all relevant topics are welcome, special consideration will be given to proposals that interrogate how urban encounters of wildness:

Russell Crowe: His Films and Pop Cultural Impact

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 1, 2024

Russell Crowe’s talents were globally recognized in the early 2000s after he appeared in a slate of well-received films – L.A. Confidential, Gladiator, and A Beautiful Mind, among others – that earned him critical acclaim. Nevertheless, in the years following these productions, he has continued to be a part of numerous projects with international and creative appeal. Alongside his films are his associations with Roman soccer teams – established in Spera’s (2023) chapter in my recent volume on Gladiator (https://vernonpress.com/book/1213) – his social media presence, and his musical performances.

“In a time of destruction, create something”

Maxine Hong Kingston

This year, our theme is “The Resilience of Imagination.” Imagination intrinsically ties into stories and the creative work that creates the world and characters contained within said stories. Imagination does not limit itself just to writers though – anyone who creates or interacts with art relates to imagination. What does imagination mean in a story? How do you use imagination? What does it encompass?
