This session will examine the emergence of invention/experiment with basic materials of expression, such as the word or image, in literature, other arts, and culture. In what ways does novel expression produce meaning, or reflect aesthetic or social change, or belong to broader changes of form or the development of new media? How does it involve cultural or other difference? What novelty is deliberately produced, what inadvertently or passively?


Abstracts for 20-minute papers.
