This panel will consider Jennifer Egan’s work in light of the post-90s literary and cultural movements emerging after postmodernism. While these contemporary trends have different names and aims (post-postmodernism, metamodernism, new sincerity, post-irony, digimodernism, performatism, the neoliberal novel, and many more), they all attempt to critique and move beyond postmodernism in some concentrated way. We invite papers that locate and complicate Egan’s work in relation to these contemporary movements.

Next year's NeMLA conference will take place in Philadelphia from March 11-14, 2021. Jennifer Egan will be the convention's keynote speaker.

The deadline for paper abstracts is September 30, 2020. Submit at: https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/Home/S/18612
