Proposed session for MLA 2007 in Chicago: Risk, Security, Anxiety in

global violence, economic stratification, debt, environmental crisis,
technological innovations, information overload, and other contemporary
stressors, what new possibilities are emerging for articulating human
experience? Is the Bildungsroman/ /being adapted in new ways to
changing circumstances? Are our notions of risk, security, and
investment being transformed? Are writers constructing new models for
making decisions or negotiating uncertainty?
