Authors Katie O. Arosteguy teaches at Sacramento City College. Her dissertation, titled "The Clothes Do Make the Woman: The Politics of Fashioning Femininity in Contemporary American Chick Lit," argues that the Chick Lit genre provides fertile ground for examining tensions in contemporary gender relations and the anxiety women feel about navigating dominant ideologies of white femininity. Her essay "The Politics of Race and Class in Contemporary American Mommy Lit" is forthcoming in Women's Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal. "`Things Men Must Do': Negotiating American Masculinity in Jack London's The Valley of the Moon" was published in Atenea: A Bilingual Journal of the Humanities and Social Sciences in June 2008. Andrew Menard lives in New York City. A former conceptual artist, he now writes about the nineteenth-century American landscape, with an emphasis on the West. Other essays are due to appear in the Journal of American Studies and The New England Quarterly. He has just finished a book on John Frémont's first expedition to the Rocky Mountains. Kirsten Møllegaard teaches courses in English Studies and Women's Studies at the University of Hawai'i at Hilo. Her current research focuses on the intersection of landscape, gender, and nation in film and literature
