Description

This session deals with American Literature from 1865 to 1945, exploring a wide variety of topics, including race and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, decoloniality, spirituality, class and power dynamics, environmental issues, and pedagogical and digital innovations in American literature and culture. The session is particularly interested in paper proposals that critically engage with any of the listed topics, or present pedagogical, digital, or archival projects, or discuss scholarly or critical editions of literary texts and provide contemporary audience greater insights into the socio-political, economic, cultural, and literary landscapes of America from 1865 to 1945. The session also invites paper proposals that engage with this year’s conference theme “Geographies of the Fantastic and the Quotidian.”
