Planned Format: Traditional Panel (4 Presenters)
Lenin 2020 edited collection—call for abstracts (Oct. 31)
This edited collection of essays seeks to answer the following question: what does “Lenin” and “Leninism” signify today? What is the future of Leninism? Why, after thirty years of iconoclasm (that involved the removal of statues of Lenin throughout the former socialist world), in spite of concerted efforts to demote, deconstruct, and discredit Leninist mode of thinking, does the specter of Lenin return to haunt our turbulent political present?
We are looking for papers focusing on women of color in various contexts: socially, culturally, historically. Thematically, papers may focus on women of color in literature, media, and film. From a theoretical standpoint, you may submit papers that validate your claims in a myriad of ways: feminist, postcolonialist, environmental, Marxist, etc.

What is time? How do we think about it? These timeless questions haunt us still.
Essay proposals are invited for a volume in the MLA Options for Teaching series entitled Teaching Postcolonial Environmental Literature and Media, to be edited by Cajetan Iheka. In the past decade, critical readings of texts from formerly colonized societies have increasingly combined postcolonial and ecocritical perspectives. The rising interest in postcolonial ecocriticism is reflected in curricular offerings, which include entire courses or sections of courses devoted to novels, stories, plays, films, and other media focused on environmental issues in postcolonial settings. The proposed volume sets out to establish the scholarship on the teaching of postcolonial ecocriticism.
