Geremy Carnes

Special Session, 2017 MLA Annual Convention, Philadelphia, Jan. 5-8
In recognition of the five hundredth anniversary (give or take) of the Protestant Reformation, this session seeks new perspectives on how Catholic-Protestant relations have been explored in British literary texts. Texts may be drawn from any period of literature since the Reformation. Preference will be given to papers which carefully historicize their readings of their chosen texts, and/or papers that study well-known works of literature which have not often been read in terms of their engagement with Catholic-Protestant relations. Please send 350-word abstracts by 15 March 2016.
