“Something must be said. Must be said that has not been and has been said before.” —Minh-ha Trinh, from Woman, Native, Other: Writing Postcolonialism and Feminism

Mainstream journalism and non-fiction reports on war and conflict often reinforce the same injustices they address, even when their goal is to critique human rights violations. On one hand, they can spectacularize suffering; on the other hand, they can de-emphasize individual suffering through “us versus them” rhetoric or distancing imagery, such as the US media’s focus on “shock and awe” tactics in the “war on terror.”

Panel description:

Opening & Vanishing Cities: Urban Space & Contemporary Fiction (Panel 17466)

updated: 
Friday, July 6, 2018 - 7:08am
Michael Antonucci/ 2019 Northeast Modern Langauge Association Convention
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 15, 2018

Following on the writing of Hannah Arendt, Cathy Caruth’s work on trauma and narrative points to a “new history of disappearance.” This panel seeks to explore that “new history” in the context of the transnational space crafted within rhetorics of the American city in contemporary fiction. Writers like Teju Cole, Don DeLillo, and Leslie Marmon Silko expand on those rhetorics—addressing denial and moments of obsessive return—as flight, escape, and migration define their characters’ imaginative renderings of cities, once boundaries have vanished, limits are reached, the fence lines fail and open range surrounds them.
