Early Modern Possible Worlds (MLA 2012, Abstract Deadline 3/1/2011)

Debapriya Sarkar/ Rutgers University
contact email:

This is a proposed special session for the 2012 MLA convention. Sixteenth and seventeenth-century works, from Utopia to The Blazing World, engaged in acts of worldmaking by speculating on or inventing "possible worlds.” This panel will examine the scope and limitations of these early modern possible worlds, and more generally, the condition of the “possible,” which authors variously define through the terms “what may be,” “what should be,” or even “what if.”
