The Society for Contemporary Literature (SCL) is a group dedicated to the study of literature of the last 25 years. SCL seeks, for ALA 2018 in San Francisco, papers that explore the intersection of truth telling and literary art in 21st-century American literature. As pressing concerns about real politics, justice, and representation loom large in the culture, and as Common Core standards actively encourage K-12 teachers to engage fiction a bit less and nonfiction a bit more, a clear and contemporary discourse on how literary art modulates and indwells all kinds of expression is becoming more and more necessary to scholars and teachers of literature.

The Velvet Light Trap Issue 83 - Politics of Space and Place

At the outset of Space and Place: The Perspective of Experience, Yi-Fu Tuan observes, "Space and place are basic components of the lived world; we take them for granted. When we think about them, however, they may assume unexpected meanings and raise questions we have not thought to ask." Power relations are often negotiated through space and embedded in place, and these dynamics resonate through and within media. As such, media studies stands to offer an important contribution to the critical study of space and place, just as this important area of study may help us to reorient and reimagine foundational premises and concerns within our field.

Literature during the years between the World Wars reflected the angst, chaos, and turmoil of modernity.  Psychoanalysis gave rise to the diagnoses of "hysteria" and "Shell-shocked."  Individuals struggled with political and economic instability.  The Influenza pandemic spread fear as millions succumbed to the infection.  Artists captured this period of turbulent historical and cultural change through their prose and poems.  The Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association's panel on "English Literature since 1900" seeks papers that explore the connections of medicine, psychoanalysis, and science, in modernist texts.  Primarily, how does the artist use his/her personal relationships with doctors, scientists, and/or psychologists to create images that reflec
