Victorian Form--Victorian Division--Follow-up on MLA CFP

Wednesday, February 10, 2010 - 2:14pm
Victorian Division, MLA

As the MLA allows only a very brief space in their listing of calls for papers, it seemed to us that it would be useful to disseminate a somewhat ampler description of what we are looking for in proposals for the next conference in Los Angeles (January 2011; submission deadline 6 March 2010).

Determining Form: Creative Non-Fiction Journeys is a two-day conference being held at Glasgow University (June 11-12) which will provide a venue for the exploration and discussion of creative non-fiction within (and outwith) academia. Creative non-fiction encompasses a wide range of genres, including biography, autobiography, travel writing, memoir, journalism and essay writing. Works such as In Cold Blood by Truman Capote, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers and The Next American Essay edited by John D'Agata investigate literary spaces with a focus on the journey rather than the destination.

Utopian Animals

Keridiana Chez

In H.G. Wells's A Modern Utopia (1905), the narrator holds a remarkable conversation between the narrator and a dog-loving botanist who declares that the stated purposes of purging contagious diseases would never, for him, justify the mass extermination of pet dogs. The botanist staunchly concludes, "I do not like your utopia, if there are to be no dogs."

I am searching for anyone who is interested in contributing to, as well as editing, a collection of essays that spans Harriet Beecher Stowe's writing career. I am supposing that since 2011 is the bicentennial of her birth, interest might be garnered among presses. All approaches, suggestions, and topics are welcome.
