This proposed special session will examine the events, geographies, temporalities, and genres of Global Climate Change. In the wake of 5th Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), this session will ask how the technical language of risk assessment—"exceptionally unlikely" to "virtually certain"—is narrated in different media to capture the unfolding and impending harm to humans and non-humans?; how can the imperatives of global social justice be addressed alongside pressing environmental crises?; what frameworks might address the uneven geographic distribution of harms and articulate the incremental yet inevitable pace of sea-level rise, desertification, and biodiversity loss?

The Midwest Modern Language Associate invites proposals for the 2014 conference, which will take place in Detroit, MI, November 13-16, 2014. Although papers are accepted on any topic, we welcome participants to consider this year's theme, "The Lives of Cities," as a rich field of inquiry. Proposals may be for individual papers, for Special Sessions focused on the conference theme, or for complete panels that do not necessarily tie to the conference theme; there are also a number of Permanent Sessions, whose specific CFPs continue to be updated on the MMLA website. See http://www.luc.edu/mmla/callforpapers.html for more details.
"I'm sick of Flannery O'Connor." With this opening line, Randy Boyagoda intrigued numerous readers in his response to Paul Elie's 2012 New York Times article entitled, "Has Fiction Lost Its Faith?"
Boyagoda will be the keynote speaker, and this conference aims to continue the discussion which Elie, Boyagoda, Gioia, and Wolfe have perpetuated. Papers will be considered from a variety of disciplines and fields but should pursue questions regarding the intersection of faith and literature.
