At ACLA 2013


I’m currently in Toronto participating in the American Comparative Literature Association meeting. My seminar, organized by David Alworth, is on “New Sociologies of Literature,” and it’s open to anyone at the conference. I’m presenting tomorrow at 11 a.m.; also on tomorrow’s slate: Laura Heffernan and Rachel Buurma, Kate Eichhorn, and David Alworth. Our location is subject to change, so check with the ACLA organizers, but we’re scheduled to be in Victoria College 215.

My own contribution is titled “Coding: Literary Field Theory, Categories, and Judgments.” I can promise invocations of both Bourdieu and Richard Scarry. More to the point, I can promise that my fellow panelists will be awesome and the discussion is guaranteed to be lively.
