635. A Creative Conversation with Siri Hustvedt and Nancy K. Miller

Saturday, 11 January, 5:15–6:30 p.m., Addison, Chicago Marriott

Program arranged by the Office of the Executive Director

Presiding: Victoria P. Rosner, Columbia Univ.

Speakers: Siri Hustvedt, Brooklyn, NY; Nancy K. Miller, Graduate Center, City Univ. of New York

Session Description:

A conversation between the authors Siri Hustvedt, essayist and novelist (The Blazing World), and Nancy K. Miller, literary critic and memoirist (Breathless: An American in Paris), about embodiment, narrative, gender, and genre. How does the representation of the author figure—embodied, omniscient, or otherwise—shape the process and reception of writing? How does the disclosure of vulnerability color narrative, and how do writers contend with this challenge?
