How has 9/11 transformed the ways in which Americans think about the problem of evil? How has this event and other acts of terror influenced our cultural imaginations of suffering and death? How have contemporary American writers contributed to the conversations about the presence or absence of God in suffering?

Mapping “No-Place”: Geographical Fantasy in Nineteenth-Century America

updated: 
Friday, May 24, 2019 - 12:13pm
Ashley Rattner and Ryan Charlton
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, August 1, 2019

Remapping is inherently an act of dissent. As Denis N. Cosgrove observes, “The measure of mapping is not restricted to the mathematical; it may be equally spiritual, political, or moral. By the same token, the mapping’s record is not confined to the archival; it includes the remembered, the imagined, and the contemplated.” What role do illusory places––literary utopias, hoaxes, legends, visions, and other fictions––play in critiquing, reinforcing, or challenging mainstream American culture in the nineteenth century? This proposed panel explores aspirational, deceptive, and fantastical spaces which throw the existing world into relief to propose plausible and potent alternative microcosms.
