Liminality in American Literature

Presiding Officer: 
Michael G. Simental, Independent Scholar

Liminal spaces and personas dominate the landscape of American literature. Building on the theories of Arnold van Gennep, Victor Turner, Pat Mora, Gloria Anzaldua, and others, this session will explore the connection between liminality and the American understanding of land, race, gender, self, genre, and reality.
