Morrissey is a popular music icon. The former singer of the influential Manchester band The Smiths is arguably one of the most intriguing and popular, if not polarizing, iconic figures of popular culture. But this book is not about Morrissey. This book is about his fans, their creative expressions of fandom, and their contributions to Morrissey’s worldwide popularity. Specifically, this book is about the subculture of Moz fandom as a US-Mexican borderland phenomenon. Mozlandia—Morrissey fans from the Midlands to the Borderlands.

This collection of essays offers twelve innovative approaches to contemporary literary criticism. The contributors, women scholars who range from undergraduate students to contingent faculty to endowed chairs, stage a critical dialogue that raises vital questions about the aims and forms of criticism— its discourses and politics, as well as the personal, institutional, and economic conditions of its production. Offering compelling feminist and queer readings of avant-garde twentieth- and twenty-first-century texts, the essays included here are playful, performative, and theoretically savvy. Written for students, scholars, and professors in literature and creative writing, Reading and Writing Experimental Texts provides examples for doing literary scholarship in innovative ways. These provocative readings invite conversation and community, reminding us that if the stakes of critical innovation are high, so are the pleasures.
