CFP: [Theory] Ethical Criticism

updated: 
Monday, January 12, 2009 - 7:18pm
Alan Blackstock

I am soliciting proposals on ethical criticism for the 2009 RMMLA
convention October 8-10 in Snowbird, Utah. I am particularly interested
in presentations advancing an Aristotelian approach to literature along
the lines of Wayne Booth and Martha Nussbaum, but all proposals dealing
with ethical approaches to literature and criticism will be considered.
