Photo-Texts and the Mapping of American Lives

Panel CFP for American Literature Association, San Diego, May 21-24, 2020

From How the Other Half Lives to Humans of New York, American authors have long interwoven photos and writing to theorize and map the modern United States and the people who inhabit it. Scholars such as Sara Blair have analyzed how place-based photo-texts produce “emergent iconograph[ies] of modern experience” (How the Other Half Looks), while others, like Jeff Allred and Joseph Entin, have suggested how modernist photo-texts offer new ways of conceptualizing crossovers between realism and modernism, the political meanings and effects of documentary, and the ethics of the gaze.

Independent Libraries Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, February 22, 2020

In the heart of their communities and repositories of some of the most independent cultural collections in the UK, independent libraries are social, educational, working spaces which deliver numerous personal benefits to those who use them. This year’s theme is inspired by Ray Oldenburg’s The Great Good Place (1989), in which Oldenberg discusses the desirable ‘third place’: public places where anyone can gather and interact. Unlike the first place (home) and the second place (work), third spaces offer inexpensive access to discussion, pleasure, and community, leading to social cohesion, civic engagement, and the wellbeing that comes from a sense of place. Third spaces can be cafes, main streets, coffeehouses, beer gardens…
