Speaking in Borrowed Tongues: An Investigation of Appropriative Literature

Throughout the twentieth century and beyond, there has been a rich and
lively tradition of appropriative aesthetics, from the Surrealists to Pop
Art, hip-hop to contemporary mash-up artists. In the literary realm, this
mode of expression has taken forms as diverse as the cut-ups of Tristan
Tzara, the New York School poetics of John Ashbery and Ted Berrigan and
Kevin Young's Basquiat tribute-in-verse, To Repel Ghosts (the Remix), as
well as prose experimentations from William S. Burroughs to Jonathan Lethem.

This new book series welcomes full-length studies of life writing in all
its forms: biography, autobiography, memoir, journals, diaries, blogs,
and so forth. Provocatively, interest in life writing has increased as
both autobiographical and biographical narratives have become a major
presence on the Internet, and the growth of literary nonfiction has
prompted a resurgence of life narratives and memoirs. The series welcomes
both single-authored book-length studies and multi-authored essay
collections on the theory and/or pedagogy of life writing.

Representing Trauma: American Redemption Stories and Lost Cause
Narratives (NeMLA 9/15/07)

This panel seeks papers that critically engage American Redemption
narratives. Specifically, this panel will investigate narratives that
represent characters reliving or re-enacting traumatic events so that
distinctions between the past and the present breakdown. We are
particularly interested in papers that discuss the conflation of absence
and loss so that historical losses are misrepresented as absence and
become “lost causes.”

CFP: [Theory] Reading, Work, and Narrative Time (10/1/07; Narrative, 5/1/07-5/4/07)

The assumption behind this panel is that a rigorous examination of the
relation between reading and working brings us to the threshold between
“intrinsic” and “extrinsic” criticism. Thematizations of work, for example,
organize our attention within the text even as they direct us outward
toward reference to the leisure that is the precondition for literary
reading itself. Most theories of narrative time depend upon an assumed
homogenization of experience that the reality of work contradicts: social
relations in class society preclude the possibility of phenomenologically
equivalent temporalities across classes, even as “homogeneous, empty time”
