TitelScholarship on Generation X Literature and Culture
BeschreibungSCHOLARSHIP ON GENERATION X LITERATURE AND CULTURE.

Proposals are sought for a an interdisciplinary volume called “Generation X Goes Global: Tales of Accelerated Cultures.” This book will engage critics’ understanding of the position, value, and meaning of “Generation X” literature and culture and its culturally diverse manifestations worldwide. Contributors are asked to explore how shifts toward a world influenced by globalization and emerging media technologies have affected aesthetic practices from roughly between 1985-2000. The goal of the volume is to paint a broader picture of the cultural outgrowths of Generation X as it is expressed in countries worldwide. Special concern will be placed on a balanced representation of essays from different fields and countries.

We encourage submissions that give an overview of a country’s demographic, political and historical conditions, and interrogates, complicates, and critically engages with each culture’s unique appropriation of the western-termed “Generation X.” In particular, we ask scholars to examine the label’s manifestations in literature, film, theatre, poetry, and/or new media (or hybrid versions thereof). Interdisciplinary and collaborative submissions are highly encouraged.

Please submit paper abstracts of no more than 500 words by February 2nd, 2009. Complete essays will not be requested until we have assured the commitment of a publisher. Once assured, we will set up a private Wiki site that will allow collaborators to share documents, ideas, and insights. This site will provide us with an international forum of discussion and collaboration. Please send abstracts, questions, or papers to Christine Henseler and Kristin Bidoshi-Peterson at genx@union.edu.
