Sponsored by Bachelor's Program for Adults and Transfer Students (http://www.newschool.edu/public-engag...) and the Creative Writing Program (http://www.newschool.edu/public-engag...) at The New School (http://newschool.edu/).
The keynote address will be delivered by novelist and critic, Vince Passaro.
The conference title, "The Body Artist," refers not specifically to DeLillo’s 2001 novel, but to DeLillo himself, an artist who has spent a career dramatizing personal encounters with impersonal systems, the human body facing the inhuman machine. The event will feature panels and presentations predominantly by literary artists, fiction writers thinking about this fiction writer’s work—what it is, what it has meant, and what it means now.
- Vince Passaro, author of Violence, Nudity, Adult Content: A Novel
The conference will consider not only DeLillo's themes—paranoia, global terrorism, underground conspiracies, consumerism, digital technology, media, gender, and race—but also his craft, humor, language, style, spirituality and Catholicism, Italian-American identity, and his representations of New York, the city in which the conference will take place.
