Historicizing Forms and Spaces of Refuge
The MLA Forum TC History and Literature invites proposals for a guaranteed panel at the 2018 MLA Convention in New York City (January 4-7, 2018).
We are seeking historically-situated papers on how literary forms construct, influence, and are influenced by spaces of refuge, asylum, sanctuary, and migration.
While recent public attention has turned toward humanitarian crises that have resulted in forced displacement, as well as debates about the legalities and moral consequences of documenting and registering immigrants, we welcome essays from a range of times and places, not limited to the United States or Britain in the present moment.
