This panel investigates the multiethnic dimension of 20th and 21st century maximalist works of art, cinema and literature. Do recent works by novelists such as Leslie Silko, Karen Yamashita, Anna Deveare Smith, Sergio de la Pava, Junot Diaz et al evince continuities with what Lawrence Buell has recently described (in The Dream of the Great American Novel) as "the minoritarian turn in protagonist-centric narrative from the mid-twentieth century onward," or are such works better understood as harbingers of a new relationship between ethnic-American writers / writing and forms of 'total fiction'?
Textual Overtures is currently accepting submissions for its 2014 issue under the theme of "Bodies". We invite papers to address this topic from creative perspectives, including bodies of text, bodies of work, the human and non-human body, and so on. We value innovative and inventive interpretation of both subject matter and presentation, and welcome work that embraces digital media, including multimodal and hyperlinked work. We accept work from both Literature and Rhetoric & Composition disciplines.
