This book highlights the multiplicity of American women’s writing related to liminality and hybridity from its beginnings to the contemporary moment. Often informed by notions of crossing, intersectionality, transition, and transformation, these concepts as they appear in American women’s writing contest as well as perpetuate exclusionary practices involving class, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, and sex, among other variables. The collection’s introduction, three unit introductions, fourteen individual essays, and afterward facilitate a process of encounters, engagements, and conversations within, between, among, and across the rich polyphony that constitutes the creative acts of American women writers. The contributors offer fresh perspectives on canonical writers as well as introduce readers to new authors. As a whole, the collection demonstrates American women’s writing is “threshold writing,” or writing that occupies a liminal, hybrid space that both delimits borders and offers enticing openings.

CFP: Legacy Best Papers Contest – SSAWW Conference 2018 (Deadline: 12.10.2018

BEST PAPERS CONTEST – SSAWW CONFERENCE 2018

The editors of Legacy: A Journal of American Women Writers are happy to announce a contest to honor the best papers presented at the Society for the Study of American Women Writers conference in Denver. Two prizes will be awarded—one for the best paper presented by a graduate student and another for the best paper presented by a non-student member of SSAWW.

Please send conference-length papers (i.e., in the form in which they were delivered) to Jennifer Tuttle at tuttle.legacy@gmail.com by December 10, 2018. Make sure that your name appears only on a title page and that any references to your own work appear in the third person. In addition, indicate whether you are entering in the graduate student or non-student category.

The contest winners will be invited to expand their papers to a length of 8,000 to 10,000 words, including documentation. If they are suitable for publication and compliant with the University of Nebraska Press copyright policy, these revised essays will be published in a future issue of Legacy. Note that the University of Nebraska Press copyright policy dictates that essays published in Legacy may not have been published previously in any form or be currently under consideration by any other journal or publisher, including as part of a book manuscript.

Although Legacy has a historical orientation and a chronological scope that ends at approximately 1940, we make an exception to this rule for the Best Papers Contest in order to open up the competition for presenters working in all time periods.

Free MallRide

Besides walking and exploring all that the Mile High City has to offer, one of the best ways to move around downtown Denver is to use RTD’s Free MallRide shuttle bus, which stops at every corner on 16th Street between Civic Center Station and Union Station. Available to passengers seven days a week, this shuttle service “starts running at 4:59 a.m. on weekdays, 5:30 a.m. on Saturdays, and 6:30 a.m. on Sundays” and “continues throughout the day with the last complete round-trip of the night starting out at 1:21 a.m.” For more information on this free service or to review the Free MallRide map, please visit http://www.rtd-denver.com/FREEMallRide.shtml.


Free MetroRide

In addition to the FreeMallRide service, RTD offers Free MetroRide during the “weekday rush hours (5:15 am-9:00 am and 2:30 pm-6:30 pm) and provides convenient connections to bus, light rail, and commuter rail.” Free MetroRide provides its passengers access to 18th and 19th streets in downtown Denver with fourteen select stops between Union Station and Civic Center Station. Look for RTD stops with a “white canopy and/or marker with a map of the route and downtown area.” For more information on this free service or to review the Free MetroRide map, its drop-off locations, and schedule, please visit the RTD website at http://www.rtd-denver.com/FreeMetroRide.shtml.
