Session Description:

Classic theories of the novel by Luk√°cs, Bakhtin, Watt, and others have focused on European texts from previous centuries. What theories of the novel are appropriate for recent writing that addresses the novel's global range and forms? This interdisciplinary roundtable renews debates about the novel from a broader empirical basis that looks beyond the North Atlantic to Africa, Asia, and the Arab world.
