It has been ten years since the untimely death of American writer David Foster Wallace, who is best remembered for his gargantuan novel, Infinite Jest. This panel seeks papers that focus on any aspect of DFW’s life or work. Proposals might address how critical appreciation of Wallace has changed in the last decade, or they might chart new paths for the next decade of Wallace scholarship. Special preference will be given to proposals that are related to this year’s conference theme of socio-political activism, which you can read more about on the SAMLA website.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 16, 2018

Following a lecture-cum-workshop in January 2017 with Birgit Kaiser and Kathrin Thiele on the topic of “Diffraction” in Erfurt, the Erfurt Research Network on New Materialism (ENNM) developed an interest in the idea of reading literary (and other) texts diffractively. Therefore, we are looking for contributions for a book proposal for the Book Series New Critical Humanities (series editors Birgit M. Kaiser, Timothy O’Leary and Kathrin Thiele), at Rowman & Littlefield International. The publication will be an edited volume of articles on the notion of “Diffractive Reading”.
