Pynchon's New Worlds

International Pynchon Week 2017

La Rochelle, June 5-9, 2017


Richard Moss
Durham University (Durham)

Richard Moss is a tutor at Durham University, specialising in drama and American fiction. He recently completed his thesis entitled “Towards a Preterite Theology: Resistance and Spirituality in the Novels of Thomas Pynchon”, which focused on how Pynchon uses religious plurality in his work to explore his political and social concerns. He is currently beginning a study looking into post-beat era American fiction, looking mostly at California-based writers and how they respond to the legacy of the counterculture.

This presentation is part of the panel NEW WORLDS ON SCREEN with Arkadiusz Misztal | Richard Moss and scheduled in the Auditorium - Médiathèque: Thursday 8 June, from 14:00 to 15:30, chaired by Xavier Marcó del Pont.
