[UPDATE - DEADLINE EXTENDED] Academic Novels: Beyond the Canon? (Special Session Proposal, MLA 2015 Vancouver, January 8-11)

updated: 
Thursday, February 27, 2014 - 6:04pm
Ian Butcher, Duquesne University

What constitutes the canon of academic novels? Discussion of the genre has tended to focus on a limited number of novels. On the British side, C. P. Snow's The Masters, Kingsley Amis' Lucky Jim, David Lodge's campus trilogy (Changing Places, Small World, Nice Work), and A. S. Byatt's Possession dominate. For American academe, a similarly small number have dominion over the field: Mary McCarthy's The Groves of Academe, Randall Jarrell's Pictures from an Institution, Vladimir Nabokov's Pnin, Bernard Malamud's A New Life, Jane Smiley's Moo, Richard Russo's Straight Man, and Michael Chabon's Wonder Boys. If these novels are taken to constitute the academic novel canon, as it were, what picture of academe emerges from them?

Pound's Presence in H.D. and Bryher's Writing

The Ezra Pound Society and the H.D. International Society

The Ezra Pound Society and the H.D. International Society invite abstracts for this non-guaranteed MLA 15 session, Pound's Presence in H.D. and Bryher's Writing. Pound's direct impact upon H.D.'s writing is not limited to their early collaboration as Imagists; whether regarded as nurturing or negative, his presence reverberates. This session considers how both H.D. and Bryher's lives and work engage with Pound's aesthetic, personal, and political activities throughout their careers. Evidence of their interaction might be found in critical writing and correspondence; representations of Pound in fiction and memoirs; poetic practices. All aspects welcome: including engagement with visual culture, publishing, politics, the occult.

Between Journal (journal issue) "Technology, Imagination, Narrative Forms" (Vol. 4, n. 8, 2014)

Thursday, February 27, 2014 - 2:01pm
Between Journal (University of Cagliari, Italy)

In the last decades, especially since the inception of digital literature, the impact of new technologies on narrative forms has been increasingly discussed: from George P. Landow's seminal work on early hypertexts (1997) to Katherine Hayles' s ruminations on how we write and think in posthuman times (2012). State of the art enquiries growingly consider the way in which texts interface with technologies in a continuous process of 'remediation' (i.e. the 'refashioning' of old media by new media – Bolter and Grusin, 2001), and the 'radiant' textualities (Jerome McGann, 2001) which are the outcome of this process, as well as the focus of a more 'media-conscious' narratology (see Marie-Laure Ryan, 2004; and 2014, forthcoming).

"What are the productive connections between high school and college writing teachers?" (email by Mar 1 to get time extension)

crosspol: a discursive journal for high school and college writing teachers

For all the initiatives aimed at engagement and making students "college ready," it seems like there isn't very much sustainable inter-institutional

communication between high school and college writing teachers. Perhaps this is only a perception fueled the frustration of student transition from one

[UPDATE] MLA 2015: Narrating Disaster in an Era of Global Climate Change (8-11 January; Vancouver, Canada)

updated: 
Thursday, February 27, 2014 - 4:07am
Christopher Walker

This proposed special session will examine the events, geographies, temporalities, and genres of Global Climate Change. In the wake of 5th Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), this session will ask how the technical language of risk assessment—"exceptionally unlikely" to "virtually certain"—is narrated in different media to capture the unfolding and impending harm to humans and non-humans?; how can the imperatives of global social justice be addressed alongside pressing environmental crises?; what frameworks might address the uneven geographic distribution of harms and articulate the incremental yet inevitable pace of sea-level rise, desertification, and biodiversity loss?
