'Writers in Conversation' contributes to the resources available to researchers internationally and to the development of a creative and engaged critical community.

The Economic in Literature -- ACLA Seminar CFP March 26-29

Monday, October 6, 2014 - 9:31pm
Kyle Wanberg, Ph.D., New York University

We find ourselves in a world where economic logic rules the day. Caught within the rationality of neoliberalism, those of us who contest austerity, privatization, and the concomitant militarization of civil society are often left to counter them through vague logics of redistribution which take as given the very systems of accounting which we seek to undermine.

Forms of Talk

updated: 
Thursday, October 2, 2014 - 2:12pm
ACLA 2015 - accepted panel

"Forms of Talk" takes into account the multifaceted achievements of "talk," as distinct from related categories like speech, voice, discourse, dialogue, communication, or even conversation. Our seminar shares a title with sociologist Erving Goffman's groundbreaking study (1981) on what is known as the "microsociology" of everyday interactions. We are interested in oralities that have been considered too commonplace, informal, accidental, idle, wasteful, or inauthentic to be of literary value.
