Papers that theorize a construction of polylingual literary history in local, national, and global contexts are invited to imagine a manifesto for a transnational and transregional comparative literary historiography for this special session of MLA 2016 at Austin. We aim to examine literary historiography that takes into account more than one language tradition. Examples include world literary history, regional or imperial literary histories, literary histories of nations with a variety of literary languages (e.g., Belgium, Canada, India, Switzerland, the US), and histories that attempt to incorporate dialect with official versions of "a" language, or oral with written forms of literature.
