Reception Studies Society Journal: new issue

Woohoo! New issue of the journal Reception: Texts, Readers, Authors, History is up here. Free access from any computer. First click scores me this fascinating-looking, and very Friends-of-the-Texty (which, sorry, is still experiencing technical difficulties, back soon) essay by Kenneth Roemer:

most of this essay will be a call for critics to pay more attention to explicit and implicit portraits of audiences, particularly as manifested in instances of listening and mis-listening in contemporary Native American fiction… In the post-genocide, still partially colonial worlds imagined by Erdrich and other Native authors, sovereignty, endurance, and basic survival often depend upon the development of listening and interpretive skills that must combine and even transcend previous models from Euro-American and Native cultures.

Five essays and eleven book reviews (one by me). Go read.
