For its MLA Convention 2021 (Toronto) Panel, the Robert Frost Society seeks papers offering fresh insights into the writing and life of Robert Frost. All paper topics will be considered. Some possible subject areas: influences on Frost's own writing and his influences on that of others; deeper analyses of overlooked or underappreciated poems, prose pieces, and plays; and analytical work that furthers our understanding of Frost's philosophical dualism.

“Modernism, Empire, and the Environment”
MSA 2020 Brooklyn panel
22-25 October 2020
Abstracts due 3/6/20
In 2016 Oxford Dictionaries named ”Post-truth” as the international word of the year, but as Lee McIntyre argues in his book Post-Truth (MIT, 2018), the concept of post-truth is not a new one, as he cites the vociferous arguments made against the cancer causing effects of cigarettes, the assault on vaccinations, and other significant moments of push-back that have occurred when the facts will out.
However, in the 2010s the omnipresent nature of post-truth arguments has accelerated and is now an omnipresent part of our lives (on international, national, regional, and communal scales).
The theatre, as one might imagine, has noticed and has responded.

Modern Language Association 2021 Convention, Toronto, Canada, 7-10 January 2021
Session Title: The Practice of Persistence at Access-Oriented Institutions
We invite proposals for contributions to an edited collection on cinematic representations of women in works of art, poetry, fiction, theater and criticism of the avant-garde. The popularization of film stars such as Blanche Sweet, Mae Marsh, Mary Pickford, Greta Garbo and Brigitte Helm shaped the cultural imaginary of modernity to such an extent that they influenced the creative activity of artists and writers in the years 1900-1950. Questions centering on feminine stardom will set the background of this collection of essays examining the intersections of vanguardism with popular culture, publicity and performance. How are images of femininity circulated and consumed by the spectators of the cinematic medium?
This special session invites papers examining the problem of time in boredom in 19th-20th century literature, particularly in the context of value and economy of time in relation to boredom. Please send 250 word abstracts and short bios by March 15, 2020
