Early in his coverage of the 1972 American presidential campaign, Hunter S. Thompson notified his readers that he was abandoning all pretense of journalistic objectivity. “Don’t bother to look for it here,” he cautions. “With the possible exception of things like box scores, race results, and stock market tabulations, there is no such thing as Objective Journalism. The phrase itself is a pompous contradiction in terms.” With this warning, Thompson was not divorcing himself from truth-telling; rather, as William Stephenson explains, in refusing to play by the correct rules of conventional journalism, Thompson “turned away from the ‘truth’ determined by metropolitan editors and their establishment paymasters, and lit out for his own frontier.”

ACLA 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 23, 2017

 ACLA 2018 | March 29-April 1 | UCLA This seminar invites papers on theories and practices of periodization in modern and contemporary literature. Participants are invited to share meditations, gambits, polemics, practicums, readings and responses relating to the shifting time-shapes of their fields. Are there certain subfields/approaches that are more or less bound by periodization? Does certain content necessitate or pressure a more active periodizing logic? Do certain objects seem to allow a periodizing quietism? Papers could address, for example, relationships between historicization and periodization, literary geographies and historical/cultural eras, or comparative method and literary time.
