In A Sense of Things, Bill Brown argues that American novels both promote and decry materialism through the vehicle of the object. Papers are invited for NEMLA in Toronto that focus on this question of materialism and objecthood in late twentieth- and twenty-first century American poetic productions. Please submit 250-word abstracts to Elisabeth Joyce via http:// www.nemla.org.
