This roundtable discussion centers itself on the relation between economics and literature, via theoretical intervention. We are especially interested in thinking logics of debt, measurability, and accountability in literary works of world literature (or those that challenge, undermine, and otherwise interrupt these economic regimes). Our aim is to investigate authority of systems of value and their modes of subjecting and subjectification. Please submit abstracts of 300-500 words directly to NeMLA website: https://nemla.org/convention/2015/cfp.html#cfp15095 Inquiries may be sent to Kyle Wanberg (kylewan@nyu.edu).
