David Foster Wallace Panels at ALA 2022
The International David Foster Wallace Society will sponsor two panels at the 33rd annual conference of the American Literature Association in Chicago on May 26-29, 2022.
We are seeking submissions related to any aspect of Wallace’s fiction or nonfiction.
Given the conference’s setting this year, in Illinois, we are particularly interested in work that considers Wallace’s relationship to or depiction of the American Midwest, or that considers Wallace as a Midwestern writer.
Please send abstracts of no more than 300 words including name, institutional affiliation (if any), and contact information, no later than January 15, 2021 to firstname.lastname@example.org . Please attach your abstract as a Word document, and indicate if you will need AV equipment. Note that scholars are limited to one presentation at this conference.
