Call For Papers

Once considered a fringe movement, neoliberalism has steadily become a central tenet of American life. Neoliberal thought subsequently spread across the globe in a variety of forms (via channels including Hollywood and regulatory bodies such as the International Monetary Fund). Promises of privatization today trump collective action in virtually every aspect of life. This epistemic shift can be felt far and wide, from politicians to postmodern theorists. This panel will investigate symptoms of – and responses to – this shift in the areas of literature and media studies. Given this year’s conference theme, papers of particular interest might address questions such as the following: how has the New Economy marginalized certain groups? In what ways have activists resisted neoliberalism? How has the form and content of various cultural productions been informed by this invisibility/resistance? By June 1st, please send a 250-word abstract, brief bio, and A/V requirements to Michael Blouin, Milligan College, mjblouin@milligan.edu.
