Travel Writing / Writing Travel: Permanent MMLA Panel

This year's MMLA conference theme – "Border States" – provides the perfect topical launch for papers on travel, travel writing, and writing about travel. Papers on any aspect of this topic from any time period are welcome, including but not limited to the following ideas:

• crossing geographical and/or cultural boundaries
• locating and dislocating the self through travel
• identifying or pushing the boundaries of knowledge

Of especial interest are papers that create their own border states between disciplines or genres.

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.
