Friday, February 12, 2016 - 10:30pm
Amit R. Baishya, Suvadip Sinha

From one perspective, postcolonial studies and animal studies should be natural allies as both interrogate the shifting limits of the human-animal binary. However, for a variety of reasons, conjunctions between these two fields have only begun fairly recently. On the one hand, the residues of certain versions of humanism (cf.

Writing Resistance (Guaranteed panel, MLA 2017, 5-8 January, Philadelphia, PA)

Friday, February 12, 2016 - 10:11am
MLA Forum on Transdisciplinary Connections between History and Literature

The Forum on Transdisciplinary Connections between History and Literature is soliciting papers on the topic of historical approaches to "writing resistance" or "writing rebellion". We construe the topic broadly to encompass the narrative construction of historical incidents of resistance, but also the practice of writing history as a form of resistance, or, in yet another vein, the resistance to historico-literary approaches in our discipline. Papers that problematize the location of historical practice (Global North or South, for example) are also of interest. Furthermore, we welcome papers that address different media, including film and the digital, as well as papers that address material from a broad historical span.

Sleuths, Private Eyes, and Policemen: An International Compendium of the 100 Greatest Literary Detectives

Eric Sandberg, University of Oulu

I am looking for contributors for Sleuths, Private Eyes, and Policemen: An International Compendium of the 100 Greatest Literary Detectives, a new reference work under contract with Rowman & Littlefield for publication in late 2017.

This collection will focus on the investigators who lie at the heart of crime fiction (and who appear with surprising frequency in other genres), and will offer academics and general readers a rigorous, opinionated, and entertaining survey of the key figures in one of our richest literary traditions. The hundred entries will offer broad historical and international coverage, but must be based on books available in English.

Literary History for the Anthropocene - MLA 2017 (Special Session)

updated: 
Thursday, February 11, 2016 - 9:24pm
Ted Howell

In August of this year, based on the recommendation of the Anthropocene Working Group, geologists will vote to determine whether the Anthropocene should be considered an official geological epoch and (if they vote yes) decide when it began. As recent critical discussions of the term have insisted, periodizing the Anthropocene means making an argument about the Anthropocene. An Anthropocene beginning in 1610 is radically different from one that starts in 1784/1800, and the AWG's likely proposal of 1945/1960 paints a dramatically different picture of the Anthropocene compared to the c. 1800 timeline that has to date received the most attention.
