Presentations will cover various topics that offer some possible progress to a deeper and more complete understanding of the phenomenon of consensual nonmonogamy.

Tuesday, July 23, 2013 - 4:34pm
The Don DeLillo Society

The Don DeLillo Society will again sponsor a session at the annual Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture Since 1900, to be held at the University of Louisville, February 20-22, 2014. 2013 marks two dates of interest for DeLillo scholars: the fiftieth anniversary of the Kennedy assassination (1963) and the twenty-fifth anniversary of the publication of Libra (1988). While Libra takes on the assassination directly, the event surfaces across DeLillo's work, from Dealey Plaza in Americana to the Zapruder film as art exhibit in Underworld. For a panel on DeLillo and the Kennedy assassination, papers are invited that consider any aspect of the assassination and DeLillo's work.

Possible sub-themes include heteronymic embodiment, transgender literature, hermaphroditism and androgyny. Who is writing? What are the practical and theoretical implications of enacting alternative selves in and/or through language? How does gender inform creativity and enlarge or fragment authorial identity?

Gesture is a capacious concept—incorporating embodied gesture in speaking in formal situations (courts of law, parliamentary debate, plebian debating or spouting clubs, public oration), in dance from high forms of court or elite social dance to low forms of country or folk dance, and of course on stage in theatrical performance. Gesture (including physiognomy) forms a kind of language of visual arts, from portraiture and history painting to satirical prints. It also includes more figurative concepts of gesture—poetic or musical gesture, gesture in the visual arts. Current work in arts and cognition even links gesture to inter-corporeal recognition.

CFP for a critical volume

Since the emergence of women's studies in the late 1960s, many books, articles and edited volumes have addressed and analyzed literary depictions of women's life experiences. Studies have focused on gender and identity, women's voices, women's agency, women and work, women coming to writing, feminist histories, gendered sexualities, women and the body, women in relationships, women and the family, women and violence. A considerable body of work has been published in both English and French on women's autobiography and on the mother-daughter relationship.
