deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

This panel takes its title from Marianne DeKoven’s introduction to Modern Fiction Studies’ special issue on Gertrude Stein, and seeks new perspectives on Stein’s work, life and celebrity. “Cases no longer need to be made for Stein’s importance,” DeKoven observed in 1996; “she has become a figure of limitless capaciousness and magnitude, a site of potentiality.” Two decades later, how is Stein’s critical legacy being transformed? How does her work speak to trends in different fields; and how does new work in those fields in turn reinvigorate readings of Stein?

In her poem, "The Lost Land," Eavan Boland declares that  

 . . . memory itself  
has become an emigrant  
wandering in a place  
where love dissembles itself as landscape.  

From Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels to Colm Toibin's Brooklyn, Irish literature has always been especially concerned with travel, migration, and the fluidity of national boundaries. This panel seeks papers that examine migration, immigration, diaspora, and displacement in Irish texts.

In The Islamic Lineage of American Literary Culture (Oxford UP, 2016), Jeffery Einboden writes that his "excavat[ion]" of "Arabic and Persion precedents that shaped U.S. authorial lives and letters" rests on the ongoing "remappings of U.S. literary origins" which have redefinined the ways we think about authorship, nation-states, and literary texts in the wake of the transnational turn.
