This special session seeks papers that focus on any aspect of Irish women's fiction from approximately 1880-1930. Irish women's writing from nineteenth and early twentieth centuries remains underresearched, though several volumes, including Ann Owens Weekes's Irish Women Writers: An Uncharted Tradition, have sought to remedy this lack. This session aims to encourage such continued exploration.

Please send proposals in Word format as attachments of 250-300 words to Dr. Audrey D. Johnson, johnsonaudreyd@gmail.com, by July 13, 2012.

We invite papers for our special session at the 48th International Congress on Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo, MI (May 9-12, 2013): "On the Borders: Reconceptualizing the Literature of Late Medieval/Early Modern Scotland."

We are interested in seeing proposals on any topic concerning the still under-studied literature of late medieval and/or early modern Scotland, but especially those that address the challenges to conventional periodization that the authors of this notoriously "in-between" period represent (roughly 1425-1525, but with no strict boundaries on either side). Papers might focus on any of the following areas, although they are certainly not restricted to them:

Adam Kelly & Maggie Gram, Harvard University

Might contemporary literature help to construct a left politics for our time? Can it help us to revive old political models, or to invent new ones? This seminar solicits readings of contemporary literary texts that grapple (or afford their readers tools with which to grapple) with the possibilities of political engagement in the present. We ask how particular literary genres might be fit or unfit for contemporary political thinking, and how contemporary texts use literary form to engage questions of equality and inequality, corporatism, sustainability, democracy, racial justice, and human rights.
