116th Annual Conference - Bellingham, Washington
Friday, November 9 - Sunday, November 11, 2018

Auteurial (self)-enactment in Contemporary Literature, Film, and Culture

Presiding Officer: 
Andrea Gogrof, Western Washington University

This panel seeks contributions on the relationship between creativity and fame, content and form, face and mask. Looking at various styles of self-representation of authors, film-makers, or other cultural figures in the building of fame, we ask: What legitimates a work of art, success, and fame in the era of voluntary and coercive digital self-exposure? What forms of resistance to self-exposure help foster success and myth in ironic fashion?
