deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 31, 2017

The conference will be dedicated to current issues of literature, translation and teaching and learning of different languages.

Academics and university lecturers are cordially invited to present their research regarding current issues of literature, translation and teaching and learning of different languages and dialects in English, Arabic or Persian. Such an approach suggests that a study is no longer limited within a certain field; knowledge from different fields cultivates diversity in a study. Recognizing this trend, the conference organizing committee aims to provide a platform for researchers and scholars from various fields to exchange ideas.

Date: 1-2 February, 2018

Women in Literature MMLA 2017—“Literatures from the Lockdown”

 

Thinking about this year’s MMLA theme, “Art and Activism,” led us to consider the ways in which women’s art and women’s activism have been “locked down.” Sometimes women’s art and women’s activism locks itself down; after all, Audre Lorde once proclaimed at an MLA conference, “What does it mean when the tools of a racist patriarchy are used to examine the fruits of that same patriarchy? It means that only the most narrow perimeters of change are possible and allowable.” How, then, do we escape the lockdown? How do we empower even as we resist?

Proposed Special Session for the 2018 MLA Annual Convention in New York City, January 4-7

The Child: What Kind of Human?

Theories of child development and attendant norms of maturity are wielded to evaluate the humanity of beings whose humanness is not self-evident. The child becomes an intellectual and physical unit of measurement against which a host of others are judged: enslaved people, pets, primates, plants, robots, extra-terrestrials, avatars, animated characters, the incarcerated, inhabitants of the global South, the differently abled, and the elderly to name just a few.
