Paper proposals sought for a special session proposal for MLA 2017 (Philadelphia, PA) that considers narratives of "contingency" in academic fiction.

Topics might include representations of adjunct, contingent, or non-tenure-track characters; the rhetorical moves and textual representations of contingent faculty in job postings; the range of approaches we might use to understand contingency relevant to race, gender, class, or other relevant critical theories; readings that explore or theorize the function of contingency in tales of academe.

CFP for MSA 18 (Pasadena, CA): Modernism's Planets

Planets colliding: Spivak, Friedman, Dimock. The 'planet', as metaphor, object, method, problem, and more, has made multiple entries into the discipline of literary studies, all of which bear on the study of modernism, broadly conceived. Ecocritical, postcolonial, and comparative methods have been at the forefront of the planetary conversation, but, as the word 'planet' suggests, there is more than enough room for more planetary interventions.
