Three years in the making. I’m proud to be able to announce officially that “The Body Artist: A Conference in Don DeLillo” will be held at The New School in NYC on the weekend of April 28-29, 2017.

Bringing together artists and scholars from across the US and Europe, the conference “The Body Artist” grew out of the undergraduate seminar of the same name, which I’m teaching for the first time this spring at The New School, in NYC. The conference website is done and linked below. Give it a look and let me know what you think. Our keynote speaker will be the writer and critic Vince Passaro. The list of speakers and their topics are formidable—including a talk on Trump and the new political realities. I’m grateful to all of the presenters for agreeing to share their time and talent with us. Click the website to learn more about the speakers and their talks. They are MC Armstrong, Matt Bell, Olivia Kate Cerrone, Scott Cheshire, Anne Margaret Daniel, John Domini, Fred Gardaphe, John Keene, Carolyn Kellogg, Randy Laist, Tyler Malone, Albert Mobilio, Tracy O’Neill, Ed Park, Andrea Scrima, David Winters, Sunil Yapa, and Jacqueline Zubek.

It will be a memorable event. I hope you can make it.
Let me know if you have any questions.
