    We welcome your participation in the Rust Belt Literature group.  NOTE: we have a call out for hosts for a panel on Rust belt Literature at the next national MLA convention.

    This group will host discussions of all types of literary responses to living in the Rust Belt, defined here as industrial communities in the United States, Borderlands Canada (Windsor, Ont.) and northern industrial zones of Mexico. Those who have been affected by the rust belt go beyond simply those who have grown up these. In a class-based society, people who have never lived anywhere near the rust belt may hold media-inspired attitudes about the Rust Belt and those who live there. We offer fresh exposure those not from the Rust belt, fresh air and news to those from the Rust Belt.

    We may overlap at times with post-colonial studies, eco-literature, ethnic and race studies, labor fiction, and regional literature.

    Welcome home!
