Don DeLillo Society
2015 American Literature Association Annual Conference.
May 21-24, 2015.
At this point in his career, Don DeLillo occupies a fascinating position in literary history, between modernist experimentation and the after of postmodernism, between the wide cultural changes of the immediate postwar decades and the similarly wrenching shifts of the 2000s, a widely-taught author in the Program Era who has never held an academic position, a darling of the high theory moment whose work continues to be relevant.
For a panel at the 2015 ALA sponsored by the Don DeLillo society, proposals are invited for papers that look at any aspect of DeLillo's influences and his influence.
