We are seeking proposals for a special session at the MLA 2017 conference. Our proposed session, "Teeming Masses in the Transatlantic Imagination," will consider literary explorations of crowds, immigration, uprisings, and/or social welfare in the transatlantic exchange, medieval to modern. We invite perspectives representing diverse fields and theoretical approaches, with possible subtopics including but not restricted to nationalism, taxation and reactions to it, democratic societies, populism, labor, and policing.
This panel will explore how institutions dedicated to the collection, preservation, and circulation of material knowledge manage sexuality. Sex materials create conflicting imperatives for librarians. As one collections curator at the New York Public Library recently told a reporter, "We needed to collect life as it was lived… It was always part of our mandate." Yet librarians at NYPL also had a mandate to protect the mass of pornographic magazines, pulp novels, and fliers they collected by carefully regulating access to them. Until recently, sex materials at NYPL labeled with three stars required supervision. That one example illustrates how sequestration generally determines who can read about sex and under what conditions.

Philament, the peer-reviewed, open access, online journal of arts and culture based at the University of Sydney, invites submissions from postgraduate students and early career academics for our twenty-second issue, Precarity.
In the spirit of MMLA's conference theme of "Border States," this roundtable seeks to explore new pedagogical approaches to the teaching of world literature to college undergraduates, especially those in survey courses, though others will be considered. We are particularly interested in papers that explore how we introduce students to "world literature" in new and innovative ways, models that move from traditional surveys to the borders of world literature, and ways in which world literature, broadly speaking, can be effectively included in the curricula.
