>"One owes it to oneself not to get mixed up in mixing genres." (Jacques
>Derrida, "The Law of Genre")
>
>"The goal is to identify new forms, since the history of art is not
>determined by ideas but by the process that gives form to ideas." (Peter
>Szondi, "In Lieu of an Afterword" to Theory of the Modern Drama)
>
>The focus of this panel is on literature that departs from its general
>form for varied purposes and with a variety of effects.  That is to say,
>works of literature with other literary genres/ forms embedded within
>them.  My specific interest is in novels that turn to drama (novels with
>embedded dramatic interludes), but I will accept papers focusing on any
>sort of generic departure/ interlude/ slippage.  Some questions to
>consider: Do these interludes signal a commentary about genre?  Some
>kind of nostalgia?  Something avant guarde?  Some kind of ritual?  A
>transition?  A repressed fantasy? A pedagogical guide?
>
>Note: I mean to be very flexible with the restriction to "modern"
>literature, as the authors below indicate.  Consider "modern" to mean
>since the advent of the novel.
>
>Possible authors to consider:
>
>Herman Melville
>James Joyce
>Virginia Woolf
>Jean Toomer
>F. Scott Fitzgerald
>William Faulkner
>Daniel Defoe
>Royall Tyler
>Gustave Flaubert
>Vladimir Nabokov
>Djuna Barnes
>Nigel Dennis
>James Boswell
>Gunther Grass
>William Gaddis
>Nathanael West
>David Foster Wallace
>Dave Eggers
>Kurt Vonnegut
>Jonathan Safran Foer
>
>Papers chosen will have to fit within a 15 to 20-minute reading time.
