MLA 2018 Roundtable: The Future(s) of Literary Biography

updated: 
Friday, February 17, 2017 - 1:28pm
Todd Goddard / Utah Valley University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

One doesn't need to look hard to find someone declaring the "end of biography" generally, and in light of the various challenges posed by critical theory, perhaps literary biography is in an even more precarious position. Likewise, it seems clear that the academy generally devalues the efforts of life writers. This roundtable will consider the current state and future(s) of literary biography, in and out of the academy.  Send 250 word abstract by March 15th.

In an era of neo-nationalism and the waning of Pax Americana, Asia ascends and transpacific tensions rise, evident in both Obama’s Pivot to Asia and Trump’s America First policies. A post-national Asian/American studies is thinking more robustly about transpacific relations that pay more attention to histories of Afro-Asian solidarity and methods of comparison beyond Asian nationalism and economic relations alone. What this means for queer critique is less clear, however. Critiques of homonationalism as well as formulations of queer international studies have pushed for critical approaches to Western international policy and its racial and gendered legacies.

Call for Essays: Stranger Things: Eighties Nostalgia, Cynicism and Innocence

 

I am looking for proposals for chapters for a book on the Netflix series Stranger Things to be published by McFarland & Company. As the book title suggests, the overarching theme of the volume is how the series creates, evokes, uses and exploits the eighties, eighties culture and contemporary nostalgia for both. Successful proposals will link an aspect of Stranger Things with an eighties counterpart and explore how the series engages that aspect of Reagan-era culture.
