Abstracts are invited for a proposed special session at the 2009 MLA

seeks papers which explore aesthetics and cultural politics in Victorian
poetry. Because of its dense and complex linguistic experimentation and
structural ambiguity, Victorian poetry foregrounds the inseparability of
the epistemological and the discursive to the degree that it is
distinctive among cultural forms of the period and not merely one among
many. Varying theoretical accounts of both Romantic and Victorian poetic
form have been offered (for instance: Wolfson, Esterhammer, Armstrong,

CFP: MLA, Philadelphia 2009: British graphic novels and comics.

Proposals are invited on British graphic novels and comics.

According to the New York Times, Britain finally “embrace(d) the graphic novel” in 2007,
supposedly many years behind the rest of the reading world. The British graphic novel industry is

Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, publishing houses like Jonathan Cape and the patronage of Posy
Simmonds by The Guardian. In what ways is it appropriate to talk about a distinctly British
tradition of sequential art?
