Landscape Studies is multidisciplinary, with a diverse array of approaches that give the field its strength. The Landscape, Space and Place (LSP) Conference is in its 12th year of bringing together scholars across various disciplinary backgrounds and from different stages of their careers. At this conference, all scholars interested in the widely varied interpretations and analyses of landscape are invited to join in the exchange of ideas and consideration of novel intellectual perspectives, to join in the effort of building a more integrative framework for the field.

We are open to many interpretations of Landscape, Space, and Place. Some previous papers and sessions have dealt with the following approaches:

Similar to narratives of the traditional, purely verbal format, topics of comics and graphic novels can range from purely fictional stories to accounts that make extensive truth claims. Graphic memoirs are probably the most discussed genre on the non-fictional–or at least not exclusively fictional–end of this spectrum. In fact, when we think of Spiegelman’s Maus which is often hailed as one of the first graphic novels, non-fictionality or semi-fictionality is central to this increasingly popular format.

Following the economic development of the mid-nineteenth century, writers and journalists increasingly focused on urban contexts and the experience of protagonists moving from rural to urban backgrounds. As a result, modern authors refer to the coagulating ferment of the metropolis for characters undergoing a formative change, while more numerous voices later investigated the opposite, the fragmenting if not destructive impact on both individuals and the social groups they belong to.

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.
