I am seeking original, previously unpublished essays for a collection tentatively titled The Science Fiction Western: Representation of Female Characters in the Late Twentieth and Twenty-first Century Media. An academic publisher has expressed interest.

Unfortunately, one of my contributors has pulled out of the project. As a result, I am seeking an additional essay. While I am looking for an essay, I am happy to accept more if they contain examinations of previously unaddressed areas of study.

Transformations of Gertrude Stein (MLA 2018)

Madison Priest
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

This panel takes its title from Marianne DeKoven’s introduction to Modern Fiction Studies’ special issue on Gertrude Stein, and seeks new perspectives on Stein’s work, life and celebrity. “Cases no longer need to be made for Stein’s importance,” DeKoven observed in 1996; “she has become a figure of limitless capaciousness and magnitude, a site of potentiality.” Two decades later, how is Stein’s critical legacy being transformed? How does her work speak to trends in different fields; and how does new work in those fields in turn reinvigorate readings of Stein?

 

Please send 300 word abstracts and a brief bio to Madison Priest, mpriest@gradcenter.cuny.edu.

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.
