Are the "new" conversion narratives, such as Elizabeth Gilbert's 2006 *Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India, and Indonesia*, Mary Karr's 2009 *LIT*, or even Cheryl Strayed's 2012 *Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail* really about the authors' spiritual experiences, or does something else lurk beneath the surface? Are they about being healthy, in any sense of the word? Are they about attaining material wealth? Are they travel narratives? Or are they some combination? This panel seeks to interrogate the connections between physical and mental health, material wealth, spirituality, and the bestselling conversion memoir of the twenty-first century.
