Don DeLillo and Paradox at ALA 2018

Thursday, December 21, 2017 - 10:34am
Jesse Kavadlo/Don DeLillo Society
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 5, 2018

The Don DeLillo Society plans to have two panels at the May 24-27, 2018 American Literature Association Conference in San Francisco, CA, on the topic of “Don DeLillo and Paradox.” Throughout his career, DeLillo’s work has balanced oppositions: novelists, and terrorists, life and death, the power of fiction and the power of history, prescience and timelessness, among many others. This year’s panel hopes to explore these paradoxes, but also why paradox, perhaps paradoxically, seems central to our understanding of DeLillo’s work. Please send your 250 word proposal and brief CV to Jesse Kavadlo at jkavadlo@maryville.edu by January 5, 2017.
