Proposed special session - MLA 2015. How do late medieval English narratives frame cultural memory? From the great famines at the beginning of the fourteenth century to the ongoing Hundred Years War, the twilight of the Middle Ages in England contains many memorable events itself, yet poets and writers during this period also draw on a fantasized English past - Arthurian legend - and the common trope of translatio imperii. Additionally, authors cite the authority of past auctors to validate their own work. As Larry Scanlon has noted, "Authority, then, is an enabling past reproduced in the present" (Narrative, Authority, and Power 38).

[UPDATE - DEADLINE EXTENDED] Academic Novels: Beyond the Canon? (Special Session Proposal, MLA 2015 Vancouver, January 8-11)

What constitutes the canon of academic novels? Discussion of the genre has tended to focus on a limited number of novels. On the British side, C. P. Snow's The Masters, Kingsley Amis' Lucky Jim, David Lodge's campus trilogy (Changing Places, Small World, Nice Work), and A. S. Byatt's Possession dominate. For American academe, a similarly small number have dominion over the field: Mary McCarthy's The Groves of Academe, Randall Jarrell's Pictures from an Institution, Vladimir Nabokov's Pnin, Bernard Malamud's A New Life, Jane Smiley's Moo, Richard Russo's Straight Man, and Michael Chabon's Wonder Boys. If these novels are taken to constitute the academic novel canon, as it were, what picture of academe emerges from them?
