Zero K is Don DeLillo’s 16th novel and deals with cryogenics -- the freezing of the dead body for a subsequent scientifically-fueled resurrection. Keeping in mind SAMLA’s theme,  Utopia/Dystopia: Whose Paradise is It?,  we seek papers that explore DeLillo’s themes, conflicts, characterization, and/or science. (SAMLA 88 * November 4-6, 2016 * Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront * Jacksonville, FL.)  Please send your 250 word abstract to Jacqueline Zubeck (jacqueline.zubeck@gmail.com) by June 5, 2016.

Networks of protest and dissent, actual and virtual, were understood to have become increasingly centreless and leaderless across the 1990s, and beyond. Even the nature of protest and dissent fell away from previous models, as aligned to pragmatic demands and manifestos, single issues and norms of controlled civil disobedience. Now the masses were understood not to assemble behind any one position, or rally to one slogan, but more to stand in a kind of collective negative correlation to the faltering status quo: a crowd of singularities.
