MLA 2018: Leonora Carrington at 100

updated: 
Monday, February 20, 2017 - 2:09pm
Andrew Ferguson
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

This panel seeks to build on the resurgence of interest in the work of Anglo-Mexican surrealist writer and painter Leonora Carrington inaugurated at her death in 2011 at age 94, and continuing through major career retrospectives in Dublin (2013) and Liverpool (2015). For many years, criticism on her writings has been held up by the relative unavailability of her works. Forthcoming centennial reissues of her complete stories (Dorothy Project) as well as her memoir, Down Below (NYRB Classics), however, offer the chance to resituate her work within recent scholarly work on modernism, surrealism, transnationalism, cosmopolitanism, gender studies and sexuality, trauma studies and neurodiversity, translation studies, and more.
