MLA Blogger Meetup/My MLA So Far

Via Kathleen, a reminder that the MLA blogger meetup will take place at SoleFood, which is located in the Loews Philadelphia, a very cool modernist hotel across from the Convention Center Thursday evening at 8:45 p.m.

Thus far, I’ve had the chance to attend one very cool panel, “Terrorism, Technology, and Visual Media,” including papers by Jennifer Doyle on the art of Ron Athey, by Cynthia Fuchs on representations of torture in 24 and Battlestar Galactica, and by Cynthia Ann Young on representations of terrorism in The Unit. Later tonight I’ll be attending the “Reportage, Class, and War” panel, which features a paper on Gunner Palace, as well as papers on journalism in the Spanish-American War and on the “technomechanization of the working class” in World War II and the Iraq war. More later, hopefully, if my allergy symptoms subside (and if I don’t stay out too late with the bloggers).
