Call for Panel Papers for the Southwest/Texas Popular & American Culture
Association's 29th Annual Conference
Albuquerque, NM, February 13-16, 2008
Panel: "Plastocritical/Plastomanifesto: Exploring the Possible"
The purpose of this panel will be twofold: to provide plastocritical
readings and to launch plastomanifestos. The plastocritical works will
explore the lives and works of potential past/present/future experimental
writers, while the plastomanifestos will explain possible directions that
one might one to write in but not actually be inclined to write. The
objective of both plastocritical pieces and plastomanifestos is to explore
what is possible in experimental writing without actually having written
it, so potentially plastomanifestos could transform into manifestos, while
plastocritical pieces could not, even though they could provide political,
historical, social, and psychological commentary and direction for
**This session, of course, would be the first
plastocritical/plastomanifesto session ever.
*** Plasto comes from the ancient Greek work plastos, which means something
that is molded or fabricated, and it can also mean something which is false.
