How does mental wellness become yet another attribute of the liberal subject who deserves to thrive? How does the performance of a personality determine the distribution of privilege? In particular, we aim to consider how the the psychologization of power bolsters structures of oppression along lines of race, sex, gender, and ability. What happens when homosexuality or blackness, for example, are reinscribed as forms of personality disorder or schizoid psychosis?

Call for Papers:  American Literature Association Conference, May 25-28, 2017, Boston, MA.

This panel invites investigation of fictional representations of veterans of war in Iraq and Afghanistan in works such as Kevin Powers’ The Yellow Birds, Roxana Robinson’s Sparta, Phil Klay’s Redeployment, and Roy Scranton’s War Porn, especially as they intersect with national debates about PTSD, “trauma heroes,” “thanking veterans for their service,” the “civil-military divide,” and current political trends.

Submit proposals of 250 words or less to Peter Molin at petermolin@msn.com by January 20, 2017.
