F175. The Sexuality of Textuality

  • Oregon Convention Center, Portland Ballroom 253-254 777 Northeast Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard Portland, OR, 97232 United States (map)

What are narrative strategies that animate the body rather than disappear the body under cover of character, action, and plot? How might sexuality be written as a territory where narrative and the body generate new meanings? Whose body story counts and for what? How is desire endlessly rewriting us? Four writers whose work in multiple genres moves from the body under endless revision address how desire, power, and sexuality write us alive or dead. Featuring Garth Greenwell, Carmen Maria Machado, Alexander Chee, and Lidia Yuknavitch
