Reporting World War II: American Correspondents at the Front-Lines
The Contemporary History Institute (Ohio University), The Institute on World War II and the Human Experience (Florida State University), and Stars and Stripes are inviting papers for a symposium at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City on April 23-24, 2020 titled: “Reporting World War II: American Correspondents at the Front-Lines.” We are especially interested in newspaper reporting, magazines, and soldiers’ newspapers, but we would also consider scholarship on radio reporting and other forms of media. Participants should be prepared to present a paper at the symposium and provide a roughly 8,000-word chapter contribution for a planned book volume with Fordham University Press by the end of summer 2020 (jointly edited by G. Kurt Piehler and Ingo Trauschweizer). Themes and issues can be comparative in nature, but some aspect of every paper/chapter should focus on American media. . .

AWARD WINNING TITLES
In this profoundly innovative book, Ashon T. Crawley engages a wide range of critical paradigms from black studies, queer theory, and sound studies to theology, continental philosophy, and performance studies to theorize the ways in which alternative or “otherwise” modes of existence can serve as disruptions against the marginalization of and violence against minoritarian lifeworlds and possibilities for flourishing.
Crucified Wisdom is the first systematic discussion of the bodhissatva path in Māhayāna Buddhism from a Christian perspective, providing historical context and a constructive proposal for Christian engagement.
A stunning collection of one writer’s beginnings. DeSalvo reframes and revises memoiristic essays that were the seeds of longer collections, to reveal her true power as a memoirist: the ability to dig ever deeper for personal and political truths that illuminate what it means to be a woman, a child of Italian immigrants, a writer, and a scholar.
Midden is a poetic excavation of loss, a carving of the landscape of memory, and a reckoning with and tribute to the ghosts we carry and step over, often without our even knowing it.
