Landscapes of Politics and Identity in American Literature
This panel investigates the concept of landscape in American literature. For Americans, the landscape brings strong associations, whether cultural, political, historical, or commercial. The landscape, in a sense, is central to the American identity. This session seeks proposals on the meaning of landscape in American literature. How do Americans use landscape to create identity? In what ways are landscapes used politically or culturally to create meaning? This session encourages interdisciplinary approaches to the landscape in American literature, including the examination of literature and the visual arts.
