For the Literary Criticism permanent section, annual convention of the
Midwest Modern Language Association, Cleveland, Ohio, November 8-11:

"Realism in Theory." This session will be devoted to assessing the state
of the conversation about realism (small r) in contemporary literary
theory and criticism. What are we saying about the modes, possibilities,
problems, meanings, and politics of the literary representation of
reality? What has been said about these things up until now? What might
be said in the future?
