Science and Literature Panel-RMMLA Boulder, Colorado 2012

updated: 
Monday, January 23, 2012 - 9:54pm
RMMLA

The Literature and Science session of the RMMLA invites interpretive
papers focusing on science and its intersection with written
methods of transmission. They might include the reuse of
scientific matter in literary forms; the relationship of
individual writers to science and of certain scientists to
literary figures of their day; the combination of scientific
and literary methods of knowledge making. Papers focusing on
the representation or integration of science in specific
literary texts are especially encouraged. However, proposals
dealing with any aspect of the interdisciplinary field of
literature and science are welcome.

This panel examines the methodology and genre of the undercover narrative in U.S. literature. From slumming expeditions and Progressive-era social investigations to cross-class passages into the world of the waitress, factory laborer, and tramp, middle- and upper-class writers have undertaken the journey "down and out" in order to understand and represent workers and the poor in their work. What do such "experiments in misery" tell us about the role of class, and cross-class affiliation, in nineteenth- and twentieth-century American literature?

Roots and Radicalisms: Literature, Theory and Praxis

Jean Baudrillard's claim from The Illusion of the End (1992) that history "has become a dustbin. It has become its own dustbin, just as the planet itself is becoming its own dustbin" signals a millennialist angst that proclaims the exhaustion of ideas and the end of historical "progress." And yet, as the significant worldwide political upheavals of the past year attest, global citizens are not yet entirely resigned to living in and among dustbins. Is it possible that we are experiencing a widespread reemergence of radical thinking and action?
