Permanent Section Call for Papers: English III: English Literature After 1900
In keeping with the conference’s theme “Artists and Activists,” this permanent section panel seeks to explore how authors have responded to the turbulences of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Whether authors were writing in response to modernization, globalization, or even more recent digitization, I welcome papers in this panel that address how English literature has provided a means for social commentary and critique in a rapidly changing world.
MLA Working Group on "Nonhuman Forms" Humanistic inquiry of late is obsessed with the nonhuman.
