Abstract Deadline: 15th April 2016

All texts and artworks will have at one stage been a work in progress, despite the tendency to value them as cultural artefacts once they are deemed finished and made available for consumption. Redrafting and editing are processes which strive towards a "final" product, meaning their publication often results in the loss or occlusion of multiple ancillary versions. Such materials are important to our understanding of how texts and works are shaped and reshaped, and by whom.

updated: 
Sunday, April 3, 2016 - 2:26pm
MMLA 2016

This permanent MMLA panel invites abstracts that engage with collectives, communities, and print culture, widely conceived. In line with the conference theme, "border states," how does print culture give us a sense of community boundaries? How are collective identities formed, altered, or dismantled? What role does print culture play in shaping collectives or communities? How can we (re)conceive solidarity or community through the literary? This panel can engage with but is not limited to the following topics: literary criticism, critical theory (including theories of affect), aesthetics, propaganda, literary texts, and print culture more broadly.

MMLA Special Session--Beyond Classrooms: Teaching English Studies Online (Deadline 4/30/16)

updated: 
Saturday, April 2, 2016 - 12:34pm
Lauren Salisbury / Bowling Green State University

What happens when instructors of English migrate from the borders of a physical classroom to digital teaching environments? As administrators and students call for more courses to be made available online, instructors are placed in the position of translating or recreating courses typically taught in face‑to‑face environments to digital spaces. This panel calls for presentations of instructors' experiences—successes and otherwise—teaching English courses online. This call welcomes instructors of literature, first‑year composition, rhetoric, writing, English for non‑native speakers, technical writing, literary criticism, and creative writing.

FPC 12 THE READERLY

Recently we have talked a great deal of unreadability, it seemed time to revisit the optimistic side of the question…

- Here we approach, I tell my teacher, a considerable objection that I want to put to you…Obscurity!

- It is, indeed, equally dangerous, he answers me, whether obscurity derives from the deficiencies of the reader, or those of the poet… but to elude the task altogether would be cheating.

--Stéphane Mallarmé, "An Interview with Jules Huret," 1891
