The English Department at the University of Cincinnati invites you to submit proposals for an interdisciplinary academic conference held on May 31, 2012 focusing on the value of sharing works in progress as a means to increase experimentation, build community, and test new ideas.

"Mapping Real-and-Imagined Places," MLA 2013 (deadline 10 March '12)

Robert T. Tally Jr.

Dickens's London, Faulkner's Yoknapatawpha, Tolkien's Middle-earth, Mieville's Bas-Lag ... Whether endeavoring to present a realistic picture of a well known geographical locale or projecting a purely fantastic otherworld, narrative fiction frequently maps the "real-and-imagined" spaces (as Edward Soja has labeled them) of our world. This panel will explore such literary cartography or geocriticism in works of realism, fantasy, or other. Please send a 250-word abstract and brief CV to Robert T. Tally Jr. at robert.tally@txstate.edu by March 10, 2012.
