Cosmopolis LIterary Conference - DeLillo: Riddled with Epiphanies

Information for “’Riddled with Epiphanies’: DeLillo, New York”
April 20-21, 2012

Presented by the College of Mount Saint Vincent & the DeLillo Society
6301 Riverdale Avenue   Riverdale (Bronx) New York 10471

2nd International Literary Conference devoted to the work of  American author, Don DeLillo
Calls for Papers:  http://call-for-papers.sas.upenn.edu/
Deadline for Paper/Panel Proposals Feb. 28, 2010

            “’Riddled with Epiphanies’: DeLillo, New York” is a conference based on conversation.  Presenters’ papers will be circulated amongst the participants and summarized during the conference itself.  We are looking to foster an atmosphere of intellectual play and a kind of collaborative inquiry long known to the sciences.  In foregoing the customary model of twenty-minute presentations, we hope to create a more lively atmosphere  which we hope will foster a fruitful dialogue about DeLillo’s work and inspire even more scholarship.  Thus, we encourage fully developed work on the author as well as more tentative projects.

The College of Mount Saint Vincent is especially beautiful in the spring, with its rolling- hills campus and flowering trees, sitting on a broad expanse of  the Hudson River.  It is located in the very northwest corner of the Bronx,  a short distance to DeLillo’s old neighborhood in the Bronx and very close to Manhattan and Yonkers as well. Accessible by all forms of public transportation as well as by car (right off the Henry Hudson Parkway), the Mount is a perfect venue for this event. 

 Festivities include a tour of “DeLillo, New York,” – Arthur Avenue to Great Jones Street – as well as a  staged reading of Love-Lies-Bleeding.

Please send a check or money order made out to the College of Mount Saint Vincent and send to Dr. Zubeck c/o the English Department.
$100  for presenters; $ 65 for guests and graduate students
