Mark Z. Danielewski’s pentalogy The Familiar, published between 2015 and 2017, is likely the most audacious project in American fiction in the twenty-first century so far. Announced as a set that would eventually encompass 27 novels, the five novels published as the first “season” of the series as a whole have done what readers have come to expect of Danielewski’s work: they once more pushed the limits of what a novel is and can be.

The exploration of prison is not new in literature and theatre. It is one in which convicts tell their stories from the inside. Here, the detained locate their experiences and conditions of prison. According to Arnold Erickson, prison has been a fertile setting for Artists, Musicians and Writers alike. Prisoners have produced hundreds of works that encompassed a wide range of literature books describing the prison experience. Modernist literature and theatre with its eclecticism saw the upsurge in the prison narrative. While Tennessee Williams’ Not about Nightingales establishes the prison genre, John Herbert’s Fortune and Men’s Eyes focuses on the harsh treatment of imprisoned homosexuals.

“I’m hated, execrated, those I meet are repelled by me. They want me crucified, and maybe their feelings are all too justified,” sang the American band The Bastard Fairies in their 2010 title track “Man-Made Monster.” The lyrics of the song oscillate between cackling threats of murder and cannibalism, and the lament, “It didn’t have to be this way, I’m a man-made monster led astray.”

n this troubled and troubling period when “normal” life is suspended and depends on lockdowns whose duration can only be indeterminate in the face of an invisible and devastating evil,
At a time when everyone’s anguish is palpable, dominated by hardships and sacrifices, our civic responsibilities, our humanitarian preoccupations are all the stronger.
In this suspended time, perhaps more than ever, certain words resonate and give birth to thoughts and reflections, i.e. the sharing of ideas, ideas of solidarity, of collaborative deeds or actions, offering friendship, comfort, goodwill...

Egan, After Postmodernism (NeMLA 2021 panel)

updated: 
Saturday, September 12, 2020 - 10:23pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

This panel will consider Jennifer Egan’s work in light of the post-90s literary and cultural movements emerging after postmodernism. While these contemporary trends have different names and aims (post-postmodernism, metamodernism, new sincerity, post-irony, digimodernism, performatism, the neoliberal novel, and many more), they all attempt to critique and move beyond postmodernism in some concentrated way. We invite papers that locate and complicate Egan’s work in relation to these contemporary movements.

ennifer Egan will be the convention's keynote speaker this year.
