CALL FOR PAPERS FOR SPECIAL ISSUE OF WAL
Western American Literature invites submissions examining the urban and suburban West in literature, film, television, memoirs, and other forms. We are interested in original work investigating the urban and suburban from a variety of critical perspectives. You might, for example, consider individual writers with a strong urban/suburban focus to their work, specific themes that reflect upon the increased urbanization of the West, place-based studies, environmental issues raised by sub/urbanism, or theoretical approaches that engage with and illuminate our perception of the topic (such as critical regionalism). Interdisciplinary essays and those taking innovative approaches to the topic are particularly welcome.
