I invite proposals on the relation between terrorism and temporality for a special session at the 2014 MLA Convention in Chicago. Notions of temporality are central to terrorism, from the attempt to destroy the home of Greenwich mean time in Joseph Conrad's _Secret Agent_, to Frantz Fanon's claim that anticolonial violence can "embody history," to the pervasive belief that 9/11 ushered in a new era. How do terrorist literary narratives reflect, respond to, or reconfigure notions of temporality, including but not limited to chronology, periodization, history, the present, Jetztzeit, futurity, the new, the "post-," or repetition? 250-word abstracts by 15 March 2013 to Todd Kuchta (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Appologies if you received multiple copies of this WNM-2013 CFP.

We welcome papers concentrating on 'spaces' that could be considered 'monstrous' or are in some way capable of creating 'monstrosity.' Spaces may be real or imagined, literal or metaphorical, psychological or material. Literal places may include sites of trauma, genocide, or biological experimentation; dystopias; colonized regions; mythical lands; etc. Psychological spaces may include memory, neurosis, philosophy, etc. Monstrosity may be perceived as depravity; social or sexual taboos; hegemonic power in the form of racism, classism, sexism; etc. Papers may challenge, call to light, or reinforce perceptions of monstrosity.
