From its colonial beginnings to the present, from New England Primer’s “I will fear God and honor the King,” to Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself,” or to George W. Bush’s “freedom and fear are at war,” this seminar aims at exploring the constructions, manifestations and various expressions of fear throughout US history. To this end, we invite paper proposals from the fields of literary and cultural studies, popular culture, media and film studies, history, psychology, sociology, philosophy, international relations, and political science.
Proposals for 20 minute papers, presentations, workshops may engage the following issues, among others:
The presentations will be published as seminar proceedings.
