Survivor paradigms through which literatures of trauma are read often presume a stable self that can be recovered. How and what does a postmodern subject survive, and is recovery possible or desired? How is selfhood in dialogue with culture in moments of crisis? The devastation in our Gulf Coast invites us to consider existing theories of the survivor and to contemplate new approaches that acknowledge elements of postmodern culture.

Theoretical essays and readings of specific texts/events/experiences are welcome for this SAMLA special session. Memoirs and autobiography must be in dialogue with critical discourse.
