Rethinking the Lower Middle Class
Call for Papers for Proposed Session at MMLA 2007 in Cleveland, Ohio (November 8-11)

Despite Rita Felski's celebrated call to reconsider the lower middle class, literary and cultural critics have been slow to take up her challenge. This panel seeks to address nineteenth- and twentieth-century literary representations of the British lower middle class. Especially welcome are

-- alternative genealogies of the lower middle class's emergence, development, and relationship to other class formations

-- new theories of reading the lower middle class

-- considerations of lower-middle-class affect or habitus
