Re-Considering John Dos Passos - ALA 2011 (May 26-29, Boston, MA)

Tuesday, November 9, 2010 - 2:13pm
Victoria M. Bryan

In recent years, John Dos Passos has fallen to somewhat low priority in critical study, but the few publications that do exist since the 1970s are engaging and compelling and stand as proof that this author deserves further consideration in our field. This individual panel proposal for ALA's 2011 convention hopes to illustrate the value of continuing to engage in scholarly research, critical conversation, and/or pedagogical approaches to John Dos Passos in the 21st century. Papers of about 20 minutes/10 pages in length on various approaches to Dos Passos's work will be considered for inclusion on the panel. Please submit an abstract of about 250 to 500 words, a CV, and any requests for A/V equipment to Victoria M.

Real Worlds: (dis)Locating Realities. Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference. April 16th, 2011.

Tuesday, November 9, 2010 - 9:21am
UMass Amherst English Graduate Organization

From surrealism to social networks to the "real" housewives of New Jersey, it's no secret that reality is socially constructed. "Reality"—-as a state of mind or as an embodied experience—-has historically been positioned in opposition to such realms of infinite possibility as dreams, fantasy, and imagination. In fact, far from being a state of stability and sanity, reality is often treated as that which must be escaped. But escape to what?
