Forms of Social Failure

updated: 
Monday, February 15, 2010 - 10:16am
Matthew Garrett/Wesleyan University, Joseph Drury/Wesleyan University

Paper proposals are invited for a panel at the 2011 MLA conference in Los Angeles on the topic of "Forms of Social Failure." In what ways have narratives explored the interarticulation of individual and social failure? When has failure become a formal device for representing an uneven, unequal, or otherwise problematic social world? What historical moments seem unusually preoccupied with social or political failure? Under what conditions might failure say more than success?

Determining Form: Creative Non-Fiction Journeys

University of Glasgow

Determining Form: Creative Non-Fiction Journeys is a two-day conference being held at Glasgow University (June 11-12) which will provide a venue for the exploration and discussion of creative non-fiction within (and outwith) academia. Creative non-fiction encompasses a wide range of genres, including biography, autobiography, travel writing, memoir, journalism and essay writing. Works such as In Cold Blood by Truman Capote, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers and The Next American Essay edited by John D'Agata investigate literary spaces with a focus on the journey rather than the destination.
