In recent years, attention to the work of David Foster Wallace, by readers of all kinds and at widely ranging scholastic levels, has grown dramatically. Increasingly, his work appears in classrooms on college (and even at times high school) campuses, as Wallace lovers and scholars introduce him to an ever-widening readership. Those of us who teach him know how much students enjoy grappling with his prose and ideas, and also how challenging his work is to illuminate for younger readers. And yet, as volumes of critical work on Wallace's fiction become abundant, no published work or organized panel focusing solely on how we teach Wallace has appeared. This panel intends to be a first step toward filling this gap in Wallace pedagogy.

Motor Culture and the Road relates to a wide variety of areas of cultural significance in the global context. More often than not, we associate "motor" with automobile culture, but the term "motor" can also simply describe any type of movement at a steady pace. In addition, the concept of "road" can remind of us freedom or escape; but it can also be an obstruction, such as "the road to nowhere" or "the end of the road.
