“These academics’ arguments seem sound as far as they go…” –Infinite Jest

 

The critical discussion of David Foster Wallace has thus far been limited to a few aspects of his most popular works.  Our conference seeks to expand the response beyond the popular imagination’s categories of “difficult,” “postmodern,” and “genius,” and beyond the author’s own articulation of his project as a response to irony.  We invite a reconsideration of Wallace with an emphasis on new perspectives of his entire oeuvre.

The Graduate Center of the City University of New York is pleased to announce a one-day conference devoted to the discussion of Wallace’s work, to be held Friday, November 20th 2009, from 9 am to 5 pm.
