CFP Edited Collection: Preserving U.S. History—Memorializing Contested Events

Conflicts over (mis)representations of historical events have long been a concern of scholars in multiple disciplines. However, the recent shift in the U.S. political climate—most notably, the shift.from the Obama to the Trump administration—warrants fresh approaches to the ways in which historical preservation is practiced. To this end, we seek proposals for essays to be included in an edited volume exploring the manner in which U.S. history is preserved, sanitized, or contested through monuments, memorial sites, museums, and print or audio-visual texts.

From its birth as "local color" at the end of the eighteenth-century to its resurgence in, and as, modernism at the turn into the twentieth-century, its defense and illustration of local customs, local dialects and of a particular sense of place has been read alternatively as a conservationist move, an "anti-modern" advocation of essentialist identities, as a capitalistic avatar of the commodification of particularities (Brodhead) and as deterritorialized critique or a radical attempt at deconstructing the norms of place, gender, and literary genres (Pryse and Fetterley).
