D.H. Lawrence made many scattered remarks about psychology throughout his letters and critical works, and, indeed, he wrote two volumes directly addressing the topic, Psychoanalysis and the Unconscious and Fantasia of the Unconscious. His evolving conceptions the ego, particularly, were often made in relation to the construction of literary characters, whether his own or those of other authors. This panel seeks papers that use Lawrence’s psychological speculations to understand his own construction of literary character, or that, alternatively, trace his method of character construction in order to shed light on his psychology. This panel is for the Modernist Studies Association Conference in Chicago November 4-7, 2021.
During the Jim Crow era, racial crossing in the United States was officially regulated through legal, economic, religious, and socio-cultural means. When African Americans and other people of color strategically chose to pass, they undermined, often at great risk to themselves, white hegemony and the fantasy of a definitively either-or color line. Following Brown vs. Board of Education and the Civil Rights accomplishments of the 1960s, racial crossing‚ including disguise and transformation, cross-racial interaction, relationships, and friendships‚ continued to be prevalent as it also manifested in new, productive, and sometimes strange forms. For example, Loving v.

Experimental fiction owes an unacknowledged debt to David Markson. A pioneer in the modernist tradition of James Joyce, William Faulkner, and Malcolm Lowry, Markson is generally grouped with renowned postmodernists such as John Barth and William Gaddis. Credited with the creation of his own genre, Markson’s later novels employ a highly idiosyncratic method of combining biographical and historical material to accrete a narrative that is often devoid of traditional characters or plot. While the early novels (which he deemed “Entertainments”) demonstrate a mastery of conventional forms including the Western and pulp noir, the innovations of his later novels have attracted a small but devoted following who have proselytized for a wider readership.

The past present of Bildung: new perspectives on and of the Bildungsroman
“Bildung always comes late. This might well be the motto for any fiction that narrates self-cultivation, whether it takes the form of a classical Bildungsroman or any number of variants that seek to avoid its dialectical closure”. (Gregory Castle)
Vector and Focus invite proposals for articles that explore science fiction, fantasy, and justice in all its forms, be it social, legal, economic, political, environmental, procedural, distributive, restorative, and/or transformative. We’re especially interested in how SFF communities, including creative professionals, academics, and fans, can explore and promote justice. How should these many overlapping communities discuss, think about, evaluate, strategize, and enact our desires for a just world?

City dwellers have a unique opportunity to see and engage in group political activities that those in more rural areas do not. Their everyday lives can be impacted by political demonstrations whether they are actively participating or not. The perspectives that we usually get are from the government, press, or political leaders. These accounts miss how people actually experience and understand the protests they see and/or participate in. As such, examining the life writing of those who participated or observed city protests can be intriguing and add a personal element to group politics. This panel will focus on the experiences of those who planned, participated, and/or observed protests in various cities. Ideas to be examined include personal vs.
What forms does care take? What does taking care of oneself, another, or each other look and feel like? These are questions that have arisen and persisted throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, as everyday intimacies have given way to the need for social distancing, mutual aid groups have organised to try to meet the needs of the most vulnerable in their communities, and NHS hospitals and services have been overwhelmed and altered drastically. Yet these questions also have a rich and interdisciplinary history in the critical medical humanities, disability studies, the environmental humanities, literary studies, affect theory, moral philosophy, feminist theory, and beyond.

Seeking submissions for a Critical Insights volume on Joseph Heller’s Catch-22 under contract with Salem/Grey House Publishers. Known as being a satirical, anti-war novel that initiated the eponymous phrase regarding paradoxical situations, Catch-22 was originally published in 1961. Catch-22 is appreciated for its dark humor, use of flashbacks, contorted chronology, countercultural sensibilities, and bizarre language. With current trends and political climate considered, it is time to revisit this classic text for a contemporary audience.

Teaching Twentieth- and Twenty-First-Century US Short Fiction
Edited by Jeehyun Lim and John K. Young
Contemporary Latinx writers, visual artists, dancers, and performance artists enact, embody, cross, and defy multiple borders – those of nation, gender, race, language, climate, species, among others – in their work. In doing so they often draw on indigenous and other inherited forms of cultural expression, reclaiming and resignifying them in the process. The tension between the desire to belong to a rooted community and the longing to break away from a prescriptive collective is a hallmark of Latinx expression on various borders – ranging from the Chihuahuan desert to the Massacre River.
