186. Federman’s Fictions: Writing the Recombinant Life

8:30–9:45 a.m., Atrium I, J. W. Marriott

A special session

Presiding: Jeffrey R. Di Leo, Univ. of Houston, Victoria

Speakers: Marcel H. Cornis-Pope, Virginia Commonwealth Univ.; Brian Geoffrey McHale, Ohio State Univ., Columbus; Christian Moraru, Univ. of North Carolina, Greensboro; Ted Pelton, Medaille Coll.; Eric Dean Rasmussen, Nord-Trøndelag Univ. Coll.; Michael Wutz, Weber State Univ.

This roundtable provides an occasion to reassess a remarkable literary life and to consider why—at a time when mainstream literati are debating fabricated memoirs, literary plagiarism, and recombinant-writing practices and scholars acknowledge, openly, that the writing process shapes their critical inquiries—Raymond Federman’s fictions are more relevant than ever.
