Class, Reportage and War
The MLA Division on Non-fiction Prose, Excluding Auto-biography is hosting a
panel on class, reportage and war that is designed to plumb the class
underpinnings of supposedly factual reporting. Whether in a straight news
story, a feature article or a longer non-fiction piece, for years reporters
have made their journalistic reputations on their war correspondence. These
reports, like other cultural texts in society, are larded with class-based
ideologies that say much about power and social organization. Papers for
this panel may focus on a writer, a piece or a publication. It may seek
comparisons between a distant war and the current war in Iraq or a
comparison. Please forward panel abstracts via email by March 15 to Todd
Vogel (email: Todd.Vogel_at_NULAdviser.org). Queries welcome.
