This is a call for abstracts for a proposed special session on "Monster Studies" for the MLA in Philadelphia, 5-8 January, 2017. Abstracts are due on Friday, 11 March, 2016, and proposals for special MLA sessions are due on 1 April, 2016. Thus there are two rounds of acceptance: abstracts for a hoped-for panel, and the official acceptance of the panel for the 2017 MLA.
The proposed session will explore and expand the depth and breadth of the emerging field of "Monster Studies." Papers can explore monsters and the monstrous as the primary focus of scholarly inquiry in literary, humanities and cultural studies, and as a secondary focus--that is, as a pedagogical tool or method, for instance, in teaching composition and the humanities.
OXFORD ENGLISH GRADUATE CONFERENCE 3 JUNE 2016: PROGRESS
'When any real progress is made, we learn and unlearn anew what we thought we knew before.'
(Henry David Thoreau)
Throughout history the complex and contested idea of progress has held wide-ranging implications for literature and literary criticism. We see the meanings and consequences of progress translated across world literature, from The Pilgrim's Progress to the Futurist Manifesto; Renaissance Humanism to the Post-Human; from colonialism to postcolonial literature and theory.
