“Not Just Amongst the Gothic: Doubles, Duality, and Doppelgangers in Children’s and Young Adult Literature”

updated: 
Wednesday, February 27, 2019 - 9:38am
Children's and Young Adult Literature and Culture Permanent Session/Midwest Modern Language Association Chicago, IL November 14-17, 2019.
deadline for submissions:

Doubles, duality, and doppelgangers are concepts found and addressed throughout Children’s and Young Adult Literature. While twins, such as those found in the Sweet Valley Highor The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamelseries, may overtly speak to doubling, other considerations, such as the “double-voiced discourse” of young adult literature Mike Cadden explores in “The Irony of Narration in Young Adult Literature,” also speaks to the wide treatment doubles and doubling have received by scholars, critics, and authors of Children’s and Young Adult Literature. Children’s and Young Adult Literature are of wide interest to audiences of children, young adults, and adults alike.

How Red Is Modernism?

Monday, March 4, 2019

Conference: MSA 2019, Toronto (October 17 – 20)Panel Title: How Red Is Modernism?Organizers: Matthew Gannon and Tavid Mulder The perennial issue of the politics of modernism is in season once again. We might now finally be in a position to leave behind the intransigent Cold War opposition of political realism and apolitical modernism, opening the possibility of reevaluating modernist politics. Mark Steven's recent book Red Modernism, for instance, makes concrete historical connections between leftist social and political events and the practices and theories of literary modernism.
