Ethics and / of Formalism â€" Society for the Study of Narrative Literature, Austin, May 1-4, 2008

Contemporary theory has often associated ethics with particularizing impulses in narrative and in

for one or more panels that ask about narrative form as a site of ethical relation and generalization,
and about the ethical purchase of formalist approaches to narrative.
