MLA 2018: Leonora Carrington at 100

This panel seeks to build on the resurgence of interest in the work of Anglo-Mexican surrealist writer and painter Leonora Carrington inaugurated at her death in 2011 at age 94, and continuing through major career retrospectives in Dublin (2013) and Liverpool (2015). For many years, criticism on her writings has been held up by the relative unavailability of her works. Forthcoming centennial reissues of her complete stories (Dorothy Project) as well as her memoir, Down Below (NYRB Classics), however, offer the chance to resituate her work within recent scholarly work on modernism, surrealism, transnationalism, cosmopolitanism, gender studies and sexuality, trauma studies and neurodiversity, translation studies, and more.

"Where is Paradise, Lantanacamara?" -- a question readers of Shani Mootoo’s Cereus Blooms at Night (1996) may reasonably ask as they are immersing themselves in that locale.  Contemporary literature often takes world-making as a matter—and the stuff—of diegesis, not mimesis.  Form, not the formation of a nation, seems among others a feature of contemporary fiction in world-making and situating the reader.  Taking a cue from Eric Hayot, who, in On Literary Worlds (2012), sees “the world of the work of art” as a wholeness crafted, complete in itself and self-referential, and argues that such as a world is “always a relation to and theory of the lived world” (43-44), our panel invites papers that 1) explore how contemporary literature repre
