2017 MMLA Convention

Permanent Section Call for Papers: English III: English Literature After 1900 

In keeping with the conference’s theme “Artists and Activists,” this permanent section panel seeks to explore how authors have responded to the turbulences of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Whether authors were writing in response to modernization, globalization, or even more recent digitization, I welcome papers in this panel that address how English literature has provided a means for social commentary and critique in a rapidly changing world.

 

Transformations of Gertrude Stein (MLA 2018)

Madison Priest
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

This panel takes its title from Marianne DeKoven’s introduction to Modern Fiction Studies’ special issue on Gertrude Stein, and seeks new perspectives on Stein’s work, life and celebrity. “Cases no longer need to be made for Stein’s importance,” DeKoven observed in 1996; “she has become a figure of limitless capaciousness and magnitude, a site of potentiality.” Two decades later, how is Stein’s critical legacy being transformed? How does her work speak to trends in different fields; and how does new work in those fields in turn reinvigorate readings of Stein?

 

Please send 300 word abstracts and a brief bio to Madison Priest, mpriest@gradcenter.cuny.edu.
