Outlaw Politics: MLA 2018 Special Session Proposal

updated: 
Tuesday, February 28, 2017 - 2:14pm
Alexander L. Kaufman
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

How has the concept of the outlaw been formed from legal and political traditions, both from the Anglo-American perspective and from elsewhere? Presently, how does the physical or virtual outlaw serve as a form  of resistance, dissent, and transgression in literature, media, and art? This panel solicits papers that discuss how outlaws, whether in specific texts or as a general tradition, have been appropriated and used in a specifically political context which is simultaneously intensely local and yet, through its connections to a larger international tradition, is also global in its scope.  This is a proposed Special Session for MLA 2018 (NYC, 4-7 January). Please send abstracts of 250-300 words by March 15, 2017 to Alexander L.

MLA 2018: Leonora Carrington at 100

updated: 
Monday, February 20, 2017 - 2:09pm
Andrew Ferguson
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

This panel seeks to build on the resurgence of interest in the work of Anglo-Mexican surrealist writer and painter Leonora Carrington inaugurated at her death in 2011 at age 94, and continuing through major career retrospectives in Dublin (2013) and Liverpool (2015). For many years, criticism on her writings has been held up by the relative unavailability of her works. Forthcoming centennial reissues of her complete stories (Dorothy Project) as well as her memoir, Down Below (NYRB Classics), however, offer the chance to resituate her work within recent scholarly work on modernism, surrealism, transnationalism, cosmopolitanism, gender studies and sexuality, trauma studies and neurodiversity, translation studies, and more.

Judith Deitch
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 31, 2017

 

What was the attitude towards genius in an age that produced a great number of polymaths?  Is ingenium strictly a natural disposition, innate quality, talent or temperament? Or to what extent must this natural quality be formed through a process of education, including self-education? Papers are invited for a special session at the Neo-Latin Congress at Albacete, Spain, 29 July - 3, August 2018, that focus on a single subject who worked in Latin in the period. The theme of the congress is Humanity & Nature: Arts & Sciences in Neo-Latin Literature. Please send your abstract of 150-200 words as a Word attachment, including your name, institutional affiliation (if any), address, email, and telephone number.
