Edited Collection: David Foster Wallace, for Critical Insight series, Salem Press (abstracts due August 15, 2012)

full name / name of organization: 
Mary Holland, SUNY New Paltz
contact email: 
hollandm@newpaltz.edu

The years since his death in September 2008 have seen an explosion of readerly, critical, and publishing interest in the work of David Foster Wallace. As his readership correspondingly broadens beyond the narrow band of postmodern scholars and metafiction fans who devoured and discussed his work in secluded circles ten years ago, demand also grows for analysis from diverse viewpoints and at all levels of Wallace, his work, his theories of fiction, and his impact on contemporary fiction. Recent and forthcoming conferences, special issues of journals, and critical collections have begun to respond to this demand in Wallace scholarship, as critics converse with each other about how Wallace and his work will be remembered, and how both will help shape our understanding of the postmodern period and of what is growing out of it. What remains to be written, however, is an introduction of Wallace’s work and ideas for next generations of readers and future scholars. By now we meet students coming into their undergraduate studies already having read Infinite Jest, and increasingly teachers at undergraduate and even high school levels incorporate Wallace’s work into their curricula. As part of the Critical Insights series published by Salem Press, this volume aims to address a broad audience that will include not just existing Wallace scholars but also these younger readers, introducing undergraduate and advanced high school students, as well as their teachers, to a variety of contexts and readings of Wallace’s exhilarating ouvre.
