Geremy Carnes
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

This proposed MLA 2018 (January 4-7, NYC) session seeks papers that address the relationship between Catholicism and English Gothic literature in ways that move beyond simplistic observations of the genre’s use of anti-Catholic tropes. Especially welcome are papers that situate Gothic literature in the history of English Catholicism or which approach the religious content and contexts of Gothic literature from “post-secular” points of view. Papers might examine anything from 18th- and early 19th-century Catholicism’s influence on the rise of Gothic literature, to the lingering anti-Catholicism (or, conversely, Catholic nostalgia) in 21st-century Gothic literature and/or film, or anything in between.

Transformations of Gertrude Stein (MLA 2018)

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

This panel takes its title from Marianne DeKoven’s introduction to Modern Fiction Studies’ special issue on Gertrude Stein, and seeks new perspectives on Stein’s work, life and celebrity. “Cases no longer need to be made for Stein’s importance,” DeKoven observed in 1996; “she has become a figure of limitless capaciousness and magnitude, a site of potentiality.” Two decades later, how is Stein’s critical legacy being transformed? How does her work speak to trends in different fields; and how does new work in those fields in turn reinvigorate readings of Stein?

 

Please send 300 word abstracts and a brief bio to Madison Priest, mpriest@gradcenter.cuny.edu.
