40th Anniversary Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
Feb. 26-March 1, 2009

As the influence of new media continues to expand, more and more people
obtain news and information through non-literary channels. This panel seeks
papers that explore non-literary types of auto/biography, including biopics
(film), biodramas (theatre), fan magazines, reality television, and
websites. How do these new sites of auto/biography function? How are they
distinct from or similar to traditional biography?

articles could consider works of science fiction, we're also
seeking examinations of how technological developments are
portrayed in literature (broadly conceived- fiction,
non-fiction, or poetry across time periods and national
boundaries), how literature and writing is in turn affected by
these developments and/or how it attempts to justify,
celebrate, rationalize, or control them. We are actively
seeking work from all disciplines, so please interpret
