The Cormac McCarthy Journal
As it goes, I tend to keep track of any new papers on post apocalyptic theory using email alerts on Google Scholar. Over the weekend I came across a journal I had not seen before called the Cormac McCarthy Journal.
For those interested in McCarthy himself, the journal is a deep well of academic writings covering his major and minor works. For those specifically interested in post apocalyptic theory, particularly in relation to McCarthy’s novel The Road, there are some excellent reference articles in volume 6 of the journal, which is dedicated to that novel.
A sample of the relevant articles include:
- The End of the Road: Pastoralism and the PostApocalyptic Waste Land of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, by Tim Edwards
- Mapping The Road in Post-Postmodernism, by Linda Woodson
- The Route and Roots of The Road, by Wesley G. Morgan
Volume 6 of The Cormac McCarthy Journal is available for download here.
