  • Talking Tacos: Borderlands Culinary Rhetoric in A Taco Testimony

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Denise Chávez’s A Taco Testimony: Meditations on Family, Food and Culture (2006) weaves together borderlands anecdotes and family recipes alongside a reclamation of language and lineage, ultimately petitioning for cross-cultural and linguistic empathy. Communicating particular emotions and memories through a shared meal, Chávez depicts the powerful role food rhetoric plays in transcending internal and external borders. The resulting memoir flows in and out of poetry, recipes, and prose narrative, pushing against both literary and linguistic boundaries. Chávez’s memoir contradicts Juan Bruce-Novoa’s view of Chicanx literature “as an attempt to preserve the Spanish language” and instead represents the evolution of ... Read More

  • “Don’t Leave out the Cowboys!”: Black Urban Cowboydom and Didactic
           Afrofuturist Countermemories in Ghetto Cowboy (2011) and Concrete Cowboy
           (2021)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Captivated by the lead story in a 2005 issue of Life magazine— with the tagline “an unlikely tale of a tough Philadelphia neighborhood and the young horsemen who live there”—Greg Neri sought to “look deeper into this unique world” (214), that is, the world of the Fletcher Street Urban Riding Club. He did so in the form of a young adult novel titled Ghetto Cowboy (2011). The text’s revisionist intent foreshadowed the emergence of an ecology of activist and interventionist cultural production that has since become known as the Yeehaw Agenda.1 Like other contributors to the agenda, Neri deploys the discourse of the archive to excavate Black cowboy life-worlds from historiographic erasure with a view to educating those ...

  • Reimagining the West in/and the First-Year Writing Course

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In her 2020 novel How Much of These Hills Is Gold, C Pam Zhang uses folkloric language to describe the very real environmental destruction that characterized expansion in the US West. Reluctant to let go of her institutional understanding of history, Lucy, the novel’s young protagonist, wishes to deny her father’s stories about the western land where they live. “Easier to dismiss all Ba’s tales as tall ones,” she tries to convince herself, “because believe, and where does it end'” (Zhang 122). Lucy’s brief time in school was formative, and she clings to the order and optimism of her white teacher’s version of the past, factually “proven” by its documentation in books. However, as Lucy learns a different history ... Read More

  • “Asian American and Pacific Islander” Studies in Boston and Hilo:

      Abstract: What comes to mind when you think of the term “Pacific Islander”'This is one of the opening questions I posed to my students on the first day of class for “Introduction to Asian American Pacific Islander Studies” in fall 2017 at Brandeis University (Brandeis) outside of Boston, Massachusetts. Students brainstormed and came up with a few responses: the films Lilo and Stitch and Moana as well as locations of Hawai’i and the Philippines, and descriptors like “exotic” and “forgotten” (mentioned four times). However, when I asked, “What comes to mind when you think of Asian American'” students filled the board with stereotypes, ethnic foods, cultural events, countries, sociological concepts, celebrities, and films; ...

      Abstract: “My name is Tamara but I would rather be called The Windtalker.”Some of today’s most prolific writers face barriers that obstruct their access to an audience in the present and the opportunity to leave written work for the future. Writers sleeping on the streets and in parks might get caught in rain or snow that destroys the contents of a notebook; writers staying in shelters might find a bag of belongings that included a folder of poems missing when they wake up or return from an errand. Writers living in tents might find it difficult to establish a writing routine without quiet, privacy, or a hard surface to write on. Many of these writers have nuanced understandings of the importance of their own writing and ... Read More

  • A Report on the Living West as Feminists Project

      Abstract: In the dedication to her 2021 book We Do This ‘Til We Free Us, abolitionist Mariame Kaba mentions a lesson her father taught her: “Everything worthwhile is done with others.” Later in the book Kaba discusses this principle further, noting that organizing work, especially around restorative justice and prison abolition, cannot be done in isolation. “What matters to me, as the unit of interest, is relationships,” Kaba asserts, pointing out that prisons serve to isolate people and break relationships and that her political commitments as a prison abolitionist are to develop stronger relationships with people (179). Relationality is thus not simply one aspect of organizing work for Kaba; it is the central principle ... Read More

      Abstract: 2036 miles, as the crow flies.Bury the bird. It is the most and least fragile thing—all bones and air, delicate. But you could never touch a bird like that. This is a corpse. Pulled from the grille of your sister’s car, where it was impossibly contorted, its bean-like insides having evacuated its body and spilled outward, twisting around car plastic at seventy miles per hour. Bury it among red ants, under sage and sand, in the shadow of Stoke’s Castle. The corpse is two hundred miles from its home. From where it had last flown.You know Kansas, Colorado, Utah almost by heart. You know the road from Atwood to Denver to Goblin Valley to Topaz. The day before, you’d made your fourth trip to Topaz, though you’ve never ... Read More

  • Afterword: Precarity, Pedagogy, and the Public

      Abstract: Anyone close to the academic job market or to humanities graduate students or early career PhDs will feel the urgency that coeditors Surabhi Balachander and Jillian Moore have put at the center of their introduction to this singular special issue. Conceived importantly as a platform for emerging scholars juried by their editor peers, WAL readers find seven essays that range widely in critical topics, in hybrid creative/critical methodologies, and in a sense of audiences for research well beyond university readers. We also find the coeditors’ arguments about new critical turns in the field of western American literary and cultural studies toward, as they say, the personal and the pedagogical. Underlying the case for ... Read More

  • Drug Lords, Cowboys, and Desperadoes: Violent Myths of the U.S.-Mexico
           Frontier by Rafael Acosta Morales (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In Drug Lords, Cowboys, and Desperadoes Rafael Acosta Morales argues for the impossibility of displacing affect from fictional and historical representations of cowboys, bandits, and desperadoes, “cultural heroes” that shape narratives of political violence on the US–Mexico frontier. In so doing, he probes the discourses and systems embedded in these archetypes alongside the unrecognized, nonconscious experiences of readers and audiences. Expanding on the work of noted scholars of affect, he proposes the notion of “affective assemblage” to examine the paradoxical persistence of these archetypes. The paradox lies in the gap between the immaterial structure of the narrative traditions themselves and the material ... Read More

  • This Here Is Devil’s Work: A Novel by Curtis Bradley Vickers
           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This Here Is Devil’s Work, the debut novel from Curtis Bradley Vickers, opens with a scene of a rabbit being killed and skinned by two brothers: “The animal squirmed and it screamed. And though the boy could only manage to twist his still-hot shotgun barrel, instead of hopping to, like he ought, Morgan was determined to make him finish this job and help him gut the rabbit” (3). The imagery of violent death is brutal and it recurs throughout the book, punctuating scenes of wildfire fighting and quieter moments of reminiscence, and ultimately serving as a thematic motif in a narrative that explores the rougher aspects of western life.The novel tells two interwoven stories: one involving Morgan, a firefighter, and his ...

      Abstract: Living the transient lifestyle so familiar to many US Forest Service wildland firefighters and natural resource professionals, Mary Emerick has spent her adult life hopscotching across the country, shifting jobs with the season and pushing limits physically and, as a woman, often socially as well.After a long and adventurous career in fire, Emerick finds herself still yearning for the wildness and freedom of the outdoors, ready to leave a ladder-climbing desk job for a ranger position in Alaska. As with all her previous moves, Emerick takes only the essentials and heads to Sitka, where she will be responsible for the monitoring and protection of two vast and rugged wilderness areas. Unlike her other moves, however ... Read More

  • Helmi’s Shadow: A Journey of Survival from Russia to East Asia to the
           American West by David Horgan (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In Helmi’s Shadow David Horgan chronicles the lives of two Russian Jewish women (his mother, Helmi, and his grandmother, Rachel) who lived as stateless refugees in China and Japan during the first half of the twentieth century, undergoing years of privation and prejudice, until they became American citizens, settling finally in Reno (Nevada). “This is an intimate story about my family, not a scholarly history. Nevertheless, I have made every effort to describe events, places, and people as accurately as possible,” writes Horgan (xi). Certainly, the book, written in a spare prose and with plenty of illustrations, succeeds in combining the author’s compelling personal exploration of his family’s past with a ... Read More

           West by Maximilian Werner (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In his new book Maximilian Werner invites us to join him in a quest that involves adventure, mystery, and an intimate look into his psyche while challenging readers to reflect on their own. For several years Werner searches for solid evidence of a wolf pack in the Centennial Mountains of southwest Montana. From the beginning he believes the pack, if it exists, is doomed. The story, it seems, will be a dramatic tragedy.During many brief forays from his home in Salt Lake City, Werner (a University of Utah professor)—sometimes accompanied by his dog Rufus, a family member, or a former student—traces signs of the rumored pack. He talks with wildlife officials from several agencies along with the occasional hunter or ... Read More

  • Lone Star Vistas: Travel Writing on Texas, 1821–1861 by Astrid Haas
           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Texas is a storied state with a legendary past, but, surprisingly, there has not been a comparative, in-depth study that examines early narratives about the state. Astrid Haas does just that in her cogent and detailed examination of travel narratives about Texas from Mexico’s independence from Spain in 1821 to the beginning of the Civil War in 1861. Haas brings together Mexican, American, and German travelogues in order to explore early constructions of Texas as a state and as an idea.Haas divides her book into three sections that focus on types of encounters with the place: exploration, colonization, and work. From the early writings of explorers to narratives that either promote or, in some cases, discourage ... Read More

  • Recovering an Irish Voice from the American Frontier: The Prose Writings
           of Eoin Ua Cathail by Patrick J. Mahoney (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Patrick J. Mahoney has written a valuable text on the stories of an Irish immigrant, Eoin Ua Cathail, recounting his adventures in the American West and Midwest during the latter half of the nineteenth century. He publishes the majority of Ua Cathail’s writing for the first time while providing context and veracity through footnotes and a thorough introduction. Aimed specifically at an Irish audience and written in Irish, Ua Cathail’s anecdotal stories follow the familiar American West literary trope of exaggerating, and often fictionalizing, the dangers and adventures of life on the frontier. What makes the book exceptional, however, are Mahony’s translations from Ua Cathail’s Irish to American English. For ease ... Read More

  • Boarding School Voices: Carlisle Indian School Students Speak by Arnold

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: “Oh, that they could speak if they wanted to.” This is what I was thinking as I read through Arnold Krupat’s volume, subtitled Carlisle Indian Students Speak. Krupat offers an anthology of mostly unpublished records and writings by Carlisle Indian School students. Words, yes, but despite the title, rarely do we hear the “students speak.”The first part of the book reports on responses to alumni student surveys and essays in Carlisle’s publications. Krupat gives due credit to the Carlisle Indian School Digital Resource Center (CISDRC) for much of the material and transcriptions he presents. It is wonderful that people are finding the resource that makes student records, documents, publications, and correspondences ... Read More

  • Help Indians Help Themselves: The Later Writing of Gertrude Simmons Bonnin
           (Zitkala-Ša) by P. Jane Hafen (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the introduction to P. Jane Hafen’s Help Indians Help Themselves, P. Jane Hafen explains that Yankton Dakota author Gertrude Bonnin’s reputation and anthologization have often been tied to her autobiographical writings, such as her well-known American Indian Stories (1921), an autobiographical text celebrated today as among the vanguard of works that spoke to the violence of the assimilationist regime of the boarding school system. Hafen writes, “Even if [Bonnin’s] reputation rested solely on her compelling boarding school stories, Bonnin would have laid the foundation for the emergence of indigenous literatures in the twentieth century” (xviii). But Hafen’s volume makes an indisputable case that there is so ... Read More

  • Guest Editors’ Introduction: Personal and Pedagogical Perspectives

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In early summer 2021 Amy Hamilton, the editor of Western American Literature, invited us to guest edit this special issue on the work of emerging scholars. She, and we, thought we might be uniquely suited to it because, as PhD candidates and as the graduate student representatives to the Western Literature Association, we are ourselves emerging scholars in the field. We curated an issue of our peers, joining them in contouring the growing edges of western American literary studies. We cannot underscore enough the importance of this move, which put the “peer” in peer review, and thank Amy for the insight and humility she showed in inviting us to edit this issue.The previous WAL issue of this kind, the spring and ...
