The Material Politics of Feeling in Contemporary American Literature

Presiding Officer: 
Alex Miller, University of Washington Tacoma

This panel seeks contributions that explore the cultural and material conditions that have motivated the “affective turn” within contemporary literary production and critique. How are contemporary novelists creating works that imagine artistic spaces “beyond postmodernism,” and what is the role of feeling within our understanding of these spaces?
