“Ah well! It means much the same thing,” said the Duchess, digging her
sharp little chin into Alice’s shoulder as she added, “and the moral of
THAT is â€"‘Take care of the sense, and the sounds will take care of
themselves.”

Contributors are invited to submit critical works on the topic of women’s writing during the British
Romantic period. As Anne Mellor argues, women such as Hannah More and Charlotte Smith, among
others, wrote across the genres in a very public fashion and with real political impact on the British
nation and its citizens, including other writers. We welcome any paper developing a topic that
focuses on these women and their work.

CFP: [Renaissance] MLA 2009 Proposed Special Session Translating Identity: Early Modern Cultural Studies

Ambereen Dadabhoy

One of the intellectual preoccupations of the early modern world was the construction of identity in
all of its disparate forms: religious, racial, sexual, and political. At the same time, however, early

colonial missions. Such forays necessitated the creation of discursive practices that made the "new"
and "foreign" knowable and sought to analyze that difference in connection with their own identity

CFP: MLA, Philadelphia 2009: British graphic novels and comics.

Proposals are invited on British graphic novels and comics.

According to the New York Times, Britain finally “embrace(d) the graphic novel” in 2007,
supposedly many years behind the rest of the reading world. The British graphic novel industry is
perceived to be dwarfed by its American and continental counterparts, despite the success of
Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, publishing houses like Jonathan Cape and the patronage of Posy
Simmonds by The Guardian. In what ways is it appropriate to talk about a distinctly British
tradition of sequential art?
