Call For Papers

This panel seeks to examine the relationship between “apocalypse” and “utopia” in American literature and culture. In the wake of 2020 and its arguably apocalyptic elements, coupled with increased conversations about how these moments of rupture and upheaval might serve as openings for crafting a better world and a better society, this panel welcomes submissions on any aspect or portrayal of the relationship between the apocalyptic and the utopian in American literary and cultural production--novels, short stories, poetry, comics, graphic novels, films, television, etc. How might we understand the relationship between apocalypse and utopia in seeking to form a politics of utopia (and all that phrase might entail)? Abstracts addressing the conference theme in relation to apocalypse and utopia are especially welcome. By July 8, please submit an abstract of 250-300 words, a short biography, and any A/V or scheduling requests to Laura Thorp, University of South Carolina, at thorp@mailbox.sc.edu.
