What does it mean for Man to expel himself from art, to leave it to
machines, structures or random generators to impart meaning and
significance to things? To what does art owe its tendency in the 20th
century towards an objective sensibility?

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"?
