Proposals deadline: 1 July 2012

Confirmed plenary speaker: Elena Gualtieri (University of Groningen)

Sunday, February 12, 2012 - 5:48pm

This permanent section on Bibliography and Textual Studies at the Midwest Modern Language Association Conference welcomes paper proposals for a panel or group of panels on topics related to the conference's theme of "debt," both literal and metaphorical. The permanent section traditionally explores points of intersection between the disciplines of literary studies and history of the book. Proposals for 2012 should merge the permanent section's disciplinary and theoretical focus with the theme of debt, addressing sub-topics like indebtedness and influence, oaths and promises, literature of demand, the funding of literary productions, or another closely related topic.
