Is There A Working Class In This Literature Class?

Wednesday, September 21, 2016 - 2:43pm
Dan Bender/neMLA 2017 Baltimore

While labor economics and political theory regularly engage the phenomenon of class conflict, literary study often glosses over it. This roundtable seeks to resuscitate the vexed question of class-bias in the academy, as reflected in the absence of or meager attention given to literary representations of working class consciousness. Papers drawing from any literary chronology and any genres are welcome.  The purpose of this roundtable is  first to explore the marginalization of working class life but then to  propose a remedy. How can literary studies acquire cross-class agency, recognizing  working class subjectivity within a traditional literary canon?  This will be the roundtable's culminating question for presenters and attendees.

This panel seeks to bring together teacher-scholars who utilize the philosophical tradition of American Pragmatism in teaching literature, writing, digital media, cultural studies or rhetoric and composition.

This includes those who teach the work of William James, John Dewey and their progeny directly, and those who use pragmatist thought to inform broader pedagogical or theoretical projects.  Whether interested in the semiotics of C.S. Peirce, the neo-pragmatism of Richard Rorty or Stanley Fish, the “prophetic pragmatism” of Cornel West, or any other branch of the pragmatist tradition, all are welcome.

From the earliest traces of etchings on stone tablets to the emergence of Kindles and e-readers in contemporary society, humans have invented platforms for the creation and dissemination of text. Implicit in each textual object are the figures of the reader and writer and their differing engagement with the work. But what does it mean to be a reader or a writer, and how does each role play a part in the shaping of a text?
