Romance novels have often been dismissed by critics because of their nature as a popular genre and for being written and read largely by women. However, in the last decade a number of scholars have approached the study of the romance novel with critical rigor and avoiding the condescending treatment of previous analysis. Quite often in romance novels we encounter characters that have very different backgrounds: come from different countries and cultures, speak different languages, belong to very different social strata or are, in some other way, an “Other” to the rest of the characters and/or the intended readers.

In 2013, Bill de Blasio’s mayoral campaign ran on the theme of “A Tale of Two Cities.” The narrative that New York is a deeply divided city – one that is simultaneously the world’s capital of finance and culture and an unfortunate model of economic and social inequality – struck a chord with many voters. This panel will examine the ways in which children’s and young adult literature set in New York City expresses, reinforces, confronts and/or overlooks this image of the city as fractured and unequal. Papers may consider questions such as: how does children’s and young adult literature represent (or ignore) the diversity of New York City childhoods?

Contemporary environmental theory has adopted vast spatial and temporal paradigms as a method for reckoning with global-scale environmental problems. These paradigms—increasingly bracketed under the concepts of the “Anthropocene,” “Capitalocene,” “World-Ecology,” and “Great Acceleration,” among others—offer what has been termed a "god’s eye view" of environmental catastrophe. While granting a macro-scale view of human agency and ecological change, these monumental concepts risk collapsing into what Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht has in another context described as an “ever-broadening present of simultaneities.” In response to the “big history” turn, this panel will attend to the cracks, fissures, and seams in the monumental.

Thoreau and Material Culture - gaurenteed session at MLA 2018

How do material objects enrich our understanding of Thoreau’s literary, natural-history, and politically-minded endeavors? How might tangible things deepen our sense of the author’s work, life, and world? What insights can we gain by recovering objects associated with his work, home, and place? The Thoreau Society invites abstracts of 250 words and a brief cv by 1 March 2017: Rochelle Johnson (rjohnson@collegeofidaho.edu).
