Zero K is Don DeLillo’s 16th novel and deals with cryogenics -- the freezing of the dead body for a subsequent scientifically-fueled resurrection. Keeping in mind SAMLA’s theme,  Utopia/Dystopia: Whose Paradise is It?,  we seek papers that explore DeLillo’s themes, conflicts, characterization, and/or science. (SAMLA 88 * November 4-6, 2016 * Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront * Jacksonville, FL.)  Please send your 250 word abstract to Jacqueline Zubeck (jacqueline.zubeck@gmail.com) by June 5, 2016.

Networks of protest and dissent, actual and virtual, were understood to have become increasingly centreless and leaderless across the 1990s, and beyond. Even the nature of protest and dissent fell away from previous models, as aligned to pragmatic demands and manifestos, single issues and norms of controlled civil disobedience. Now the masses were understood not to assemble behind any one position, or rally to one slogan, but more to stand in a kind of collective negative correlation to the faltering status quo: a crowd of singularities.

In keeping with this year’s SAMLA theme of utopia and dystopia, this panel will investigate the ways in which work, class, and labor have been represented throughout these traditions in American literature and culture. From utopia texts from authors like Edward Bellamy and Ignatius Donnelly to dystopian films like The Hunger Games and Divergent, utopian and dystopian representations have had a lot to say about work, class, and labor. In this panel, the questions we are interested in posing in this session are these: how are utopias/dystopias important for thinking about social class and labor? What can these representations tell us about popular and theoretical understandings of social class and labor?
