The MLA has approved a the volume Approaches to Teaching Coetzee's Disgrace and Other Works for its Approaches to Teaching World Literature series. The full volume has gone through a round of peer review, and the MLA board has asked that the editors -- Laura Wright (Western Carolina), Jane Poyner (Exeter), and Elleke Boehmer (Oxford) -- solicit some additional essays for inclusion.

We are looking for one additional essay on Coetzee and the history of the novel. We ask that authors interested in being considered for inclusion submit a 300 word abstract on any aspect of this topic to lwright@email.wcu.edu by August 20, 2011.

Susan Booker Morris, Interdisciplinary Humanities

Although reason and discourse are important in framing and communicating 'truths' about the human being, increasingly visual representation is serving to communicate attitudes, histories, beliefs, and values. This special issue on the representation of the 'other' invites your analysis of race, ethnicity, nationality, queerness, or gender as found in representations in television, ads, films, photographs, video games, computer images, etc. If these othernesses are constructed, the visual representation is one arena in which the construction takes place and is disseminated. Any theoretical bases are welcome.
