In The Islamic Lineage of American Literary Culture (Oxford UP, 2016), Jeffery Einboden writes that his "excavat[ion]" of "Arabic and Persion precedents that shaped U.S. authorial lives and letters" rests on the ongoing "remappings of U.S. literary origins" which have redefinined the ways we think about authorship, nation-states, and literary texts in the wake of the transnational turn.

“Alternative Facts” and Fictions: Multiplicity, Indeterminacy, and the 2016 Presidential Election

updated: 
Thursday, March 2, 2017 - 10:57am
MLA 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 10, 2017

This MLA roundtable will reconsider the “Theory” debates of the 1980s and after in light of the 2016 U.S. presidential election.  Is poststructuralist “de-centering” somehow complicit in the rise of “alternative facts” of recent newspeak or does it offer a critical bulwark against it?  (This is not a guaranteed session, so the proposal will be submitted once the roundtable is set.)  Please send a 250-word abstract and short biographical blurb by March 10 to David Ben-Merre (benmerdn@buffalostate.edu).
