Panel Title: "Deadwood" and Emotion

 

Conference: Western American Literature Association, Boise, Idaho, October
25-28, 2006.

 

In keeping with the WLA conference theme, "Feeling Western," this panel will
examine the role of emotion in HBO's award-winning television western
"Deadwood." Although much has been said about the show's rough language,
violence, and its gritty and realistic portrayal of a frontier town and its
inhabitants, there has been little discussion thus far of its emotive and
even sentimental elements. The central question this panel will ask is: what
is the role of "feeling" and "feelings" in "Deadwood"?
