Announcing a call for papers for the Eighteenth-Century English Literature session(s) at the 65th annual Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association Conference, Oct. 6-8, 2011, in Scottsdale, Arizona. The conference will be hosted by Arizona State University.
We invite fifteen-minute paper submissions focusing on any aspect of English literature in the eighteenth century. Last year's panel included the elegiac in Charlotte Smith's poetry, political economy in Defoe's novels, the narrative theory of Hogarth's engravings, and utility and pleasure in Francis Burney's letters and fiction. Papers on all authors, genres, and periods within the period will be considered, as we hope to create a pastiche of scholarship.
