The Feeling of Time in Contemporary American Literature

full name / name of organization: 
2015 PAMLA Conference - Nov. 6-8 in Portland, OR
contact email: 
rkaufma2@binghamton.edu



Briefly: A reader’s sense of time in literature rests upon a fully embodied and affective reading experience. Amongst an author’s mechanisms for communicating a shared sense of time with one’s readers is the use of highly affective, visceral, and/or proprioceptive linguistic cues. I’m looking for work that either explains or demonstrates how the affective communication of felt time works in contemporary American literature. Interdisciplinary work especially encouraged.
