UPDATE: The Fiction of Nonfiction (grad) (2/16/07; (dis)junctions, 4/6/07-4/7/07)

This call for papers is for a proposed panel to be held at (dis)junctions 2007: Malappropriation Nation at the University of California Riverside’s 14th Annual Humanities Graduate Conference on April 6-7, 2007.

The recent controversy around James Frey’s A Million Little Pieces has exposed several key concerns around the writing of nonfiction. Considering the fact that many “fictional” books contain autobiographical details and that “nonfiction’s” claims to truth have been undercut by poststructuralist criticism of many stripes, has the fiction/ nonfiction binary been rendered useless?

Strange Attractors: Unpredictable Combinations in Historical and
Cultural Contexts

In chaos theory, strange attractors can describe provisional patterns
emerging from chaos as terms are brought together in equations.
Applied to the humanities, the term 'strange attractors' not only
suggests the influence of chaos theory and intersections with
scientific theory, it also raises images of unlikely combinations,
emerging connections and unstable meanings.
