From Quentin Compson to Harry “Rabbit” Angstrom and beyond, twentieth-century American literary representations of white masculinity reveal a preoccupation with the idea of terror. Why? Is terror a necessary condition of white American masculinity? Was it new to the twentieth century, and does it continue in the twenty-first? Do non-white-male authors represent masculinity in its terror? Why does the triangulation of whiteness, masculinity, and “the American century” give rise to so much terror? Please send 250- to 500-word abstract by September 30, 2009 to Sharon Paradiso at email@example.com.
