deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 16, 2018

The WMS is seeking submissions for the following guaranteed session for the 2019 MLA Convention:

Labor unrest and repression in late nineteenth-century Chicago, Paris, and London helped forge internationalist ties that laid the basis for the Second International. William Morris, Walter Crane, and their acolytes were very much a part of this trans-Atlantic radical political, literary, and artistic exchange of ideas. This panel explores the dynamics and consequences of their efforts, doing so in a way that more fully elucidates Morris’s trans-Atlantic influence on socialism’s rise in the West.

Analysis and appreciation of the artistic functions and contributions of sung letters in musical plays and operas.   In these days of e mail, Twitter, etc., it can be hard to remember that, at one time, correspondence was done more slowly by letter, and that the reading and/or writing of letters was often an important part of theatrical events.  You are invited to submit proposals that explore this phenomenon.  250 word abstracts by 20 March 2018; Mail abstracts to Shoshana Knapp (dashiell@vt.edu).

Victorian/Edwardian Adventure Fiction and Social Change

Thursday, February 15, 2018 - 9:07am
Jenn Fuller / SAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 11, 2018

This panel welcomes submissions that explore how popular adventure fiction/boy’s books of the long nineteenth century were used as agents of social change. While often viewed as works for adolescents, such novels played subversive roles in dismantling traditional ideas and establishing new cultural norms. We are especially interested in papers that explore novels set in locations outside the colonial center that worked to challenge British assumptions about education/the educational system. Potential authors could include Joseph Conrad, Robert Louis Stevenson, H.G. Wells, or Edgar Rice Burroughs as well as lesser-known authors such as Louis Becke or authors popularized through translation, such as Jules Verne.
