City dwellers have a unique opportunity to see and engage in group political activities that those in more rural areas do not. Their everyday lives can be impacted by political demonstrations whether they are actively participating or not. The perspectives that we usually get are from the government, press, or political leaders. These accounts miss how people actually experience and understand the protests they see and/or participate in. As such, examining the life writing of those who participated or observed city protests can be intriguing and add a personal element to group politics. This panel will focus on the experiences of those who planned, participated, and/or observed protests in various cities. Ideas to be examined include personal vs.

Study and Scrutiny: Research on Young Adult Literature
deadline for submissions:

The confluence of sports culture and sociopolitical issues has a long history. Memorable examples of athletes of yesteryear embracing activism include Tommie Smith and John Carlos raising their fists against institutional racism, Muhammad Ali opposing the Vietnam War, and Billie Jean King fighting for gender equity. Contemporary examples include Colin Kaepernick protesting police violence against people of color and the U.S. women’s national soccer team charging U.S. Soccer with gender discrimination. Each example underscores the reality that athletes are so much more than the games they play. Many authors have honored this tradition through the fictional athletes they portray in contemporary sports-related young adult literature (YAL).

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has radically altered all aspects of society in North America and around the globe, including higher education. The Modern Language Association Committee on the Status of Graduate Students in the Humanities invites short reflections from graduate students on how this situation has affected the core aspects of their scholarly lives––from coursework and teaching to research projects and dissertation defenses––as well as the impact on their broader selves: personal well being, physical and mental health, familial and domestic responsibilities, financial and living situations, and any other repercussions of this crisis.

Call for Papers:

This panel seeks presentations about racial identity/experience and time in modern and contemporary literature, visual-art, and performance cultures, broadly and imaginatively conceived. We are especially interested in papers about irregular conceptions of racialized/black time, such as those that draw on ideas of absurdity or abstractionism to discuss race as it relates to time and phenomenological inquiry, the staging of temporal stasis or acceleration, and questions of audience and presentness, duration, or movement. We welcome presentations about African American expressive practices, but also those that focus on works by artists belonging to other racialized communities.

We seek papers for a panel at this year's Modernist Studies Assocation annual meeting (Brooklyn, NY, October 22-25) entitled "House Styles: Pulp, Periodicals, Publishing."  From the little magazines that launched a slew of modernist authors' careers to the grassroots periodicals and zines of the 1970s–80s that reintroduced forgotten or out-of-print writings, periodicals have consistently served as counter- and sub-cultural venues for literary production. This panel will consider the intersections between print cultural forms, mechanisms of dissemination, and the constitution of evolving twentieth-century literary canons and tastes.
