The Little Short Shorts: Narrative as Commentary

Presiding Officer: 
Kathryn Stevenson, Moreno Valley College

This panel is interested in works--especially short, shareable, social network-friendly works-- that use narrative as political and social commentary, infusing noncorporeal spaces with story as if to re-flect, re-people, and re-plot unreflective and characterless cause and effect chains, asking how "the little short short" ushered in by Twitter and Facebook status updates responds to the political climate from which it emerges and offers counter narratives that undermine master narratives.  Please submit sample little short shorts and a brief meta-description of your work in the "Proposal" section, as well as offering a title for your proposed talk and a very brief bio/meta-description for your abstract.
