>Call For Papers for Proposed Panel on Economics and Narrative Form: Society
>for the Study of Narrative Literature, Georgetown, 03/07
>
>Submissions are invited for a proposed panel addressing narrative as an
>economic form: in what ways do narrative strategies underwrite economic
>relations or financial instruments such as credit, speculation, or interest?
>Critics have consistently suggested that the economic content of novels in
>particular contributed to the ideological normalization of capitalism, but
>have less often engaged the economic consequences of narrative form.  How
>might narrative form(s) eventuate or contest the consolidation of financial
>capitalism as a system of representations?  Accordingly, this panel will
>explore how formal features such as (but not limited to) point-of-view,
>character, and self-referentiality, or even realism itself, contend with
>economic representations or abstractions.  Papers on the narrative
>techniques of economic thinkers like Marx and Smith also welcome.

>Please send a 500 word abstract and abbreviated CV to [log in to unmask] by
>October 20th, 2006.  Narrative requires proposed panel submissions by
>October 30th, 2006.
