Literary Imagination of the Plasticene

MLA 2020 Convention Just-in-Time Session
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, September 3, 2019

According to the US Geological Survey’s findings published in May 2019, “it is raining plastic” in the Rocky Mountains. Reports of airborne microplastics travelling around the globe are being released. The Arctic snow is shown to contain plastic particles. These disturbing discoveries attest that the pervasiveness of plastic has never been more conspicuous, even in the most “pristine” regions of the planet. At the same time, with India's impending ban on importing plastics from abroad for recycling purposes, plastic acts a political metaphor of neoimperialism that backfires on the “first-world” countries. In this era of Plasticene, we breathe, eat, drink, and excrete plastic.

Why do we do what we do in the field of literary studies? Why does it matter? To whom? What redemptive or transformative work does literature do? When? Where? How? We invite reflection and conversation about the different kinds of work literature does to and through writers, readers, teachers, thinkers, and scholars. Our topic is intentionally broad as we seek to inspire, encourage, and celebrate the creation, interpretation, and appreciation of literature from any historical period and any genre. Our format is inclusive with panels for professors, graduate and undergraduate students, as well as scholars from multiple disciplines including English, Modern Languages, Theology, Education, Psychology, Science, and Humanities.
