Rosemary Haskell, professor of English, recently chaired a session titled “The Rhetoric of Contact Between Military and Civilian Life” at the South Atlantic Modern Language Association Annual Meeting, held Nov. 16 in Atlanta.
Haskell also presented a paper at this conference session: “The Power Vacuum: Two Kinds of `Inner Emigration’ in Ben Fountain’s ‘Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk.'”
Fountain’s 2012 novel explores the experiences of a group of young U. S. soldiers as they are feted during the half-time show at a Dallas Cowboys’ football game for their now-famous, but deadly, firefight at the battle-front in Iraq.
