Cather Studies 9: Cather, Chicago, and Modernism (submissions 15 Oct 2009)

Thursday, May 21, 2009 - 4:38pm
Melissa J Homestead, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Submissions are invited for volume 9 of Cather Studies, to be published by the University of Nebraska Press. The theme for the volume will be "Cather, Chicago and Modernism." Essays may address Willa Cather's relationship to broader formations of cultural and literary modernism, as well as to the city of Chicago. How, and in what ways, is Cather a modernist (if at all)? Cather described Death Comes for the Archbishop as a 'narrative': does this kind of description point to a radical, experimental fiction-making? To what extent did she also resist and reject the 'modern'? The editors of Cather Studies seek submissions that address a wide range of intersections and connections between the full range of Cather's work and modernism/modernity.

INKE 2009: Implementing New Knowledge Environments:

Proposals by 1 June 2009 to inke.conference@gmail.com

Digital technology is fundamentally altering the way we relate to writing, reading, and the human record itself. The pace of that change has created a gap between core social/cultural practices that depend on stable reading and writing environments and the new kinds of digital artifacts--electronic books, being just one type of many--that must sustain those practices now and into the future.
